How Much Can I Sell My Engagement Ring For? | Virginia Beach

Selling your engagement ring can help you turn unwanted diamond jewelry into cash, but you're likely wondering just how much. Whether or not you'll get paid a high price for previously-owned diamond rings might impact whether you're interested in selling at all. If you're selling because you're hoping to acquire some much-needed cash, you might be a bit anxious about how much you'll get. These are all common feelings and concerns among customers that we've worked with in our years of experience as a local jewelry store and pawn shop. There's no reason to keep wondering how much your engagement ring or diamond wedding ring is worth, however, when we can help you get answers quickly and easily.

Sell Your Engagement Ring to a Buyer Who Pays More

​Whenever you choose to sell a piece of jewelry, one of the most important decisions that you can make is who to sell to. There are lots of reasons for this, but probably one of the most important to you -- as the one who is selling your fine estate jewelry -- is the fact that it simply has a huge impact on the amount that you'll get paid.

Some really appreciate fine jewelry. These buyers know the market value of good jewelry, and they're willing to pay a high value for it. Some potential buyers won't really know the value of your ring, or simply won't appreciate it as much as other buyers do. Some have the financial backing to pay what antique jewelry, designer jewelry, and more are worth, while others don't.

As you can probably imagine, you're more likely to get a fair price if you deal with a buyer who understands the value of engagement rings, who has an interest in buying these rings, and who is able to pay you what you deserve, on the spot.

Are you looking for a potential buyer that checks all of these boxes? Skip a private buyer or online buyer. Instead, sell your ring in the easiest way possible, and get paid a great price at the same time. In Virginia Beach, that means visiting Hilltop Pawn Shop.

How Much Can I Sell My Engagement Ring For?

Engagement ring buyers like Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry look at different things when we're determining the true value of your engagement ring. For example, there are many engagement rings out there that have lab-created diamonds or other alternative stones, so we'll check to see if your ring has a natural diamond or not.

Once we've determined the type of stone (or stones) in your ring, we'll determine its carat weight. With diamonds, we look at cut, color, and clarity. Bigger diamonds that are of a higher quality typically fetch the highest price, of course. We'll check to see if repairs are needed, such as prong retipping or if there is a missing stone. We'll also determine if your ring is made from 18K gold, 14K gold, 10K gold, platinum, silver, etc. Once a diamond specialist in our store looks at all of these things, we'll be able to make you an offer.

It might sound like it will take a long time to have your ring valued, but it will actually only take a few minutes for one of our helpful and intelligent staff to make you an immediate cash offer. The first step of the selling process is to visit us so we can value your ring, so come see us when you can!

Get Paid in Cash or Store Credit

Many people who come to us to sell a diamond engagement ring want to be paid for their ring in cash. That's no problem whatsoever. In fact, that's our default option -- we know you likely want to put some extra money in your pocket, and what better way to do so than with cash?

However, some of our customers choose to get store credit in the value of the diamond ring that they bring us. Perhaps you still want to wear an engagement ring, but you're thinking about swapping out your ring for a different one, we offer an excellent solution for you! Just bring your old ring, and we'll give you the best value in-store credit for it. Then, take a look at our selection of leading bridal jewelry brands, antique engagement rings, and more.
