COLOUR: Diamonds are graded on the GIA color scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow). Generally Near Colourless to Colourless diamonds are preferred by “most buyers”. The exceptions is rare highly coloured fancy diamonds.
CUT: The cut of a diamond is a very important consideration in a diamonds value. A poorly cut diamond will be much less spectacular looking when light shines through then an excellent diamond that is cut for maximum brilliance.
Clarity: Diamonds are graded on their internal clarity From FL (flawless) down to I3 ( included) where the flaws are visible to the naked eye without 10X magnification.
Value: Most Jewelry appraisals have very little bearing on what you will get for a diamond in the used market. For one, appraisals are generally for insurance replacement purposed can often be 10 times or more higher than what you can actually get on the secondary market so having realistic price expectations when selling a used diamond is key as most Jewelry depreciates in value once you purchase it.
