Why Sell To Diamond Buyers in Chicago?

Posted on March 15th, 2017 by Joe G

People sell diamonds in Chicago for many different reasons such as loss of job, debt, unexpected bills, downsizing in retirement years , a divorce or breakup. The reasons for selling your diamonds can be endless. The place to sell your diamonds can also seem endless. If you try to sell your diamonds online you risk all the potential shipping mishaps,as well as having to send your valuables off and having the proper insurance to cover any loss, as well as getting a completely different price than you were quoted once they have your valuables hundreds or thousands of miles away in their possession, to a friend which can be awkward for both parties involved, or to diamond buyers in Chicago. You may be wondering where the BEST place is to sell your diamonds. Selling to professional diamond buyers in Chicago like Chicago Gold Gallery is the best place to get the greatest value for your diamonds, paying you immediately that day while you watch and let them take you through the process in person. Learn why!


Here at Chicago Gold Gallery, we have been diamond buyers in Chicago since 1980. When you sell to us you will work with a diamond specialist who is experienced in buying diamonds of all sizes and shapes.


Analyze Your Diamonds in Person
When you sell a diamond online the person purchasing your diamond won’t be able to inspect its value and usually quote a price much higher than what they will ultimately pay just to entice you to “mail it in” but once they receive it they usually always find a reason as to why it will not be the price they quoted, then you have to many times pay the shipping and insurance on return just to get your own item back and once again risk having it get lost or pilfered in delivery. Unless you are an expert in diamonds, it is likely that you may not know the value of your diamond other than it’s retail value and that is not reality when selling a diamond on the secondary market. The retail or appraised value of your diamond will always be more than it’s actual value ( unless it was purchased in the 1970’s or earlier and even then can have an overly optimistic appraisal. Our trained G.I.A experts take the time to analyze your diamond to ensure that you get the maximum value and top dollar for your diamonds. Additionally, we will weigh, color grade, and clarity grade your diamond and no additional cost.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
