Are Second Hand Diamonds Cheaper?

TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

Diamonds have captured people’s imagination and love for the finer things in life for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It’s important to note that one thing that makes diamonds so special is that they all have value, even second hand diamonds. Whether it is an engagement ring, diamond family heirloom, or even a loose diamond, they all have value. There is always a market for selling diamonds for the simple fact that there is always a demand for diamonds.

Does that mean it will cost you just as much to buy a second hand diamond as it would to buy a brand new diamond straight from the jewelry store? Actually, no.

Are Second Hand Diamonds Cheaper? 

Typically speaking, a second hand diamond is around 30-50% less expensive. Because of this, second hand diamond rings are considerably cheaper than a similar brand new ring. The same size and quality diamond will often be thousands of dollars less than a similar ring that’s new. You can buy a piece that you or someone special will love, for a price you’re thrilled with.

That being said, it is important to note that some used engagement rings can be worth more than they were when new. This has to do with whether they are true vintage rings and have sought after design details or previous owners. Imagine the engagement ring worn by a famous dead celebrity or the first piece of jewelry Coco Chanel designed. These pieces will be incredibly costly, so that’s not the type of second hand diamonds we’re talking about here.
