Sell Your Cushion Cut Engagement Ring in Virginia Beach

If you're searching for a reputable diamond buyer who will purchase your cushion cut engagement ring, you don't have to look any longer. Not only do we buy luxury timepieces, antique jewelry, and more, but we also offer the absolute best cash return for previously-owned diamond rings, including cushion cut rings. You might have always known us as the best local jewelry store to purchase jewelry from, but we are also the right buyer for your unwanted ring. We have years of experience as engagement ring buyers, and we'll make you an immediate cash offer for all types of bridal jewelry, including your cushion cut engagement ring.


Best Way to Sell Your Cushion Cut Engagement Ring in Virginia Beach

The first step to selling a cushion cut engagement ring from leading bridal jewelry brands is to find a buyer. An online retailer might seem like a good option for getting a reasonable price for your ring, but if you want to get as much money as possible -- and if you'd like to sell your ring and get paid for it today -- this may not be your best bet. Online buyers also require you to send your ring to them in the mail, and there's the potential that your cushion cut engagement ring or other fine jewelry could even get lost along the way. You also likely won't get paid right away, which might be bad news if it's your goal to sell your ring fast and get paid as soon as you can.


Of course, there are other local pawn shops that you can visit in hopes of selling your ring, but if you want to get the best value based on your cushion cut diamond wedding ring or engagement ring's value, you should come to Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach. We make the selling process easy, and we'll make you a fair cash offer.


If you're wondering why you should sell to us instead of selling to another pawn shop in the area, the reasons are simple. For one thing, we've been at this for a long time now; in fact, our sister store was opened in 1996, and we've been here in Virginia Beach since 2010. Because we put so much of a focus on engagement rings and jewelry here, we know the value of your ring more than some of our competition does. We are your go-to diamond specialist in Virginia Beach. Our many satisfied customers over the years will tell you the same thing!


Sometimes, jewelry stores will allow you to work with them to sell a ring, but generally, they will only do it if you're willing to put your ring on consignment. Since the jewelry store has more incentive to show people their own rings rather than yours, it may take a while to find a buyer. You may find it's not really ideal to sell your ring in this way when you have other options.


Naturally, there is the option to find a private buyer on Craig's List or Facebook, but selling to local jewelers like Hilltop Pawn just makes more sense. There's no hassle or wait to find potential buyers when you come to diamond buyers like us. You can get the most money for your old engagement ring by selling to Hilltop Pawn, and there are no shady or risky meet-ups with strangers you don't know. You also don't have to worry about wasting your time with buyers who might never actually purchase your ring. When you bring it to us, you will know that you are working with a safe and reputable local business, and you'll also know that you can sell your ring on the spot.


We Pay More for Cushion Cut Engagement Rings

If you're wondering why we pay the best price for your cushion cut diamond engagement ring, the answer is simple: we want people in the Virginia Beach community to view us as the best place to go when they're in the market for an engagement ring. We're only the best option if we have inventory in stock, and we'll only have inventory in stock if we're willing to pay a higher price as jewelry buyers ourselves. When we purchase your cushion-cut engagement ring, we'll have one more beautiful ring to offer in our cases. Someone who is shopping for an affordable pre-owned cushion cut engagement ring is sure to fall in love with it!


Of course, when bringing jewelry in to us, the main thing you're probably curious about is how much you'll get paid. We get it; we'd be curious about the same thing! The sooner you bring your ring to us, the sooner we can evaluate it and make you a purchase offer, so bring it today!

There are four primary things that diamond buyers like us look at when purchasing a diamond engagement ring. The first is the cut; in your case, it's a cushion cut. The second is the carat weight. The visual size of your diamond isn't what matters, since some cuts look bigger than others, and things like diamond halos can make a center diamond look bigger. The actual carat weight is what has a heavy impact on your diamond's value; after all, a two carat diamond is going to be worth much more than a half carat diamond.


Then, we start looking more at the quality and appearance of your diamond. Its color is important. Of course, there are yellow diamonds, pink diamonds, and even black diamonds. However, even among clear diamonds, there are a lot of variances; some are much more "clear" than others. Color is graded on a scale from D to Z, with D diamonds being the most colorless (and therefore the most valuable), and Z being a light yellow or brown. Many people go with G and H colored diamonds, since they still appear clear to the naked eye, but they're more affordable than D, E, or F diamonds. Regardless of the color grading of your cushion cut diamond, however, it has value at Hilltop Pawn.


Lastly, when evaluating a diamond, we will look at its clarity. This is how "flawless" a diamond is, and it's measured by examining the diamond under 10-power magnification. Basically, we're looking for inclusions, which are internal flaws in the diamonds, and blemishes, which are external blemishes. If neither are present, a diamond is considered "flawless" and is incredibly valuable. Most diamonds do have some inclusions, but many of them are not visible to the naked eye. The closer to flawless that your diamond is, the more your cushion cut engagement ring is worth. However, even diamonds that have a few imperfections are still quite valuable.


We spend a lot of time looking at your cushion cut diamond because in most cases, the value of the diamond is what has the biggest impact on the value of the ring. However, other things matter, too. Whether your ring is a designer piece matters, as does the gold makeup of the ring itself. Also, if there are more gemstones in your ring than just a center stone, those will obviously add to the value of your ring, too. Don't worry; we will carefully assess all of these things before we make you an offer. We examine, value, and work with jewelry every day, so rest assured, we will determine an accurate value for your ring, then make you an offer accordingly.


Hilltop Pawn Wants to Buy Your Cushion Cut Engagement Ring

From modern designer jewelry to antique or vintage cushion cut rings, we pay top dollar at Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach. This is especially true for popular jewelry, like a cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.


Cushion-cut diamonds have been soaring in popularity lately. It's true that round-cut engagement rings are the most popular engagement rings you can buy, but cushion-cut engagement rings are preferable for some people. They still have some of the things that people love the most about having a round brilliant cut diamond as their center stone. For example, the rounded corners of cushion diamonds makes them more durable than emerald cut, square shape, and rectangular shapes. They're less prone to chipping and wear over the years, which is obviously important for a ring that is intended to be worn daily for the rest of your life.


Some consider modern cushion cuts to be some of the best diamonds because they have maximum brilliance. Regardless of the total carat weight of your diamond, it's sure to have a lot of sparkle and "fire." Plus, you can purchase cushion-cut diamonds in endless variations, from antique cushions (such as an heirloom piece) and vintage-inspired settings to the more modern styles that are highly popular today.


You might know the many things that make these rings great, and you may have searched everywhere to find your perfect cushion engagement ring. Now, though, you may be interested in selling it.
