 What if I don’t know what kind of diamond I have?

 Will you take the diamond out of my ring?

To confirm the grade of the diamond, we normally need to remove the diamond from the ring. We will try to give you an initial valuation first, so that we know if it is worth taking the diamond out. Don’t worry, we will always ask you for permission before removing the stone.

Yes. If you are looking to sell a diamond to buy a new one, we will work with you on your ideal new diamond. We offer up to 20% more on your offer in the form of store credit when you upgrade your diamond with one of our partners.
