Sellingyourdiamond.net 

………if you’re trying to sell your diamond…………. 

     Today it is very difficult to sell a diamond.  Finally here is a site dedicated to selling your diamond for the highest possible price that benefits both you, the seller, as well as the buyer.  No dealers are allowed to have any listings on this site.  This site is only for private individuals who would like to sell their loose diamond for whatever reason.  I, Martin Sheffield, am the moderator of the site and am available for any guidance and consultation during the sales procedure.  If you are unsure or have any questions concerning any procedural guideline please call or email myself and I will certainly be glad to assist.  I may be called at 800 252 1476 or mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com  I have been in the diamond retail sales business for 40 years.  You may view all my credentials at http://www.independentgemservices.net.  I wrote the diamond buyer’s handguide which you may view at http://www.diamondguide.net  I will be your official advisor and it is up to you to call me once you’ve started the sales procedure should you have any questions about following the procedural guidelines.   I must stress that it is very important to strictly adhere to all the rules and regulations as set forth in this website to ensure that nothing goes wrong in the sales procedure.  Http://www.sellingyourdiamond.com and IGS Inc., are not responsible or liable for any losses or damages that may occur however caused.

     If you’ve broken off an engagement or are getting a divorce or have inherited a diamond that you want to sell then your available options for obtaining a relatively high return on the diamond were very limited………..until this phenomenal website came about. Previously,  you could go to a diamond retailer who may pay you approximately  10% of the replacement value and then sell the diamond at a huge markup.  You benefit very little and the retail jeweller stands to make a huge markup.  Or, you can go to the auctions and pay high commission fees and if you’re lucky perhaps get around 20% of the replacement value.  Or, you can put a classified in your local paper only to have potential clients offer you ridiculously low prices.  Having people come to your home can be a real worry in itself.  Until now these are just about your only options.

          Now, this site guides you step by step how to properly sell your diamond or precious stones at the highest possible price that benefits both you and the buyer to the maximum.  The method is extremely professional and results in you and your client being totally satisfied.  Astute diamond shoppers today can use the internet to purchase diamonds at wholesale + approx. 5 to 20% (internet dealer’s markup).  Therefore there is a specific niche where you are selling lower than the internet to the extent that it makes it worth the buyer’s time and effort to buy from you.  What you aim to do is sell at wholesale or a little lower.  If a buyer were to purchase a diamond on a diamond internet site the buyer would be paying wholesale + the internet company’s profit of 5 to 20%.   At this site the buyer is paying strictly wholesale and you, the seller benefits since you are receiving approximately the same amount that the diamond supplier would be paid by the retailer who in turn sells to the end user consumer.   This would make it worthwhile for both yourself and the buyer.  If you want to trade-in a diamond as an upgrade it might make more sense to sell your diamond for the maximum price possible within the guidelines set forth in  this site and then to apply the funds towards the purchase of a diamond that you’ve tracked down on the internet or one that you even see listed on this site!!!.  When retailers offer you trade-ins for upgrades they benefit….not you.  They’ll resell your diamonds at high markups offering you little for them. Please follow the steps as outlined below.  Everything is explained in full detail so that the entire procedure makes total sense.

          The whole procedure is totally safe since you are working through a web of professional, accredited, highly recognized, certified appraisers.  At no point during the procedure do you have to Fedex a diamond directly to a client.  That is too risky and nerve wracking.  If you want to sell your diamond you would have the bona fide appraiser in your area verify the original GIA or AGS cert and then supply you with an appraisal.  Once you’ve located a client who wants to purchase the diamond, you then have your appraiser send the diamond to the client’s (buyer’s) appraiser. You are fully responsible for paying the appraiser his shipping charges and associated professional fees.  Remember, that should there be a claim, then the appraiser would have to settle with his insurance before you get reimbursed.  However, following the guidelines of this website chances are relatively small that there would be problems…..however, ‘sellingyourdiamond.net will not be held responsible in the event that a package with a diamond is lost during shipping.  It is important to make sure that the appraiser has the proper insurance coverage before shipping the diamond to the potential client’s appraiser. If you encounter any difficulties in any shipping process between appraisers please call Martin Sheffield at 800 252 1476 or mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com and http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net can possibly arrange to insure the diamond with their insurance company and you would then pay http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net directly for the shipping.    All the appraisers are located at http://www.diamondappraisers.net   You and the future buyer will mutually decide which appraiser to use.  You can call myself, Martin Sheffield at 800 252 1476 for advice on an appraiser before sending.  The client’s appraiser (buyer’s appraiser) will then verify the GIA or AGS report on behalf of the client.  You will be sending both the diamond and the GIA report to the appraiser.   The buyer will set up an appointment with the appraiser to view the diamond.  Should everything check out OK with the GIA or AGS cert the buyer will more than likely want to purchase the diamond. Once the buyer decides to purchase the diamond then the buyer will receive an invoice  from http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net and would wire transfer the funds directly to http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net  Since the buyer has seven days within which they may have a refund,  http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net will then send out a check to the seller immediately after the seven days.  The check will be for the amount the diamond sold for less the 5% commission.   

     If you should decide that you would like to have your diamond sold without personally participating in the sale and by having the contact information as myself, Martin Sheffield, with the ‘SellingYourDiamond.Net’ phone number listed on the ad 800 252 1476 as well as the ‘SellingYourDiamond.Net’ email listed:  mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com, I will be more than pleased to look after all enquiries into the sale of your diamond so that you, the seller, do not have to get personally involved.  Should you wish to leave all the sale’s work to myself, Martin Sheffield  that is fine, however, instead of the normal 5% commission, the commission rate would be 10%.  By doing it this way, you avoid all contact with the public totally.

      Once http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net  receives the funds, then ‘sellingyourdiamonds.net will then notify the buyer’s appraiser that the buyer has paid in full and may release the diamond.  There is a ‘Diamond Release Form’ that ‘sellingyourdiamond.net  will fill out and send to the appraiser as well.  This system ensures a fair and accurate completion of the transaction with http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net acting as a neutral party between the buyer and the seller.  The seller, buyer and appraiser are welcome to call myself, Martin Sheffield, at  800 252 1476 or mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds for any assistance during the closing of the sale or at any other time.

          Before the appraiser ships the diamond, the buyer will be required to leave a small deposit with http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net .  The amount of the deposit is $100.00USD if the list price  of the diamond is up to $5000, $200.00USD if the list price of the  diamond is up to $10,000USD, $250.00USD if the list price of the diamond is up to $15,000, $300.00USD if the list price of the diamond is up to $20,000.00USD and $400.00USD if the list price is up to $25,000.00  Should the list price be over $25,000.00 then the deposit amount will be prearranged by myself and the seller.  Please contact Martin Sheffield at 800 252 1476 in order to pay the deposit.  The deposit may be paid by Visa, Mastercard or Amex.  At the time the deposit is made copies of the invoice and buyer-seller agreement will be issued to both buyer and seller.  If the buyer purchases the diamond then the deposit amount will be deducted from the amount that the buyer would have to wire transfer. The whole purpose of the deposit is to show sincerity and genuine interest especially if the seller  is going to arrange to have the diamond shipped to any part of the country for the buyer to view.  The potential buyer would be responsible for the return shipping charges in case the diamond is not purchased and the buyer’s appraiser would return the diamond to the seller’s appraiser.  The deposit amount would be used to cover the return shipping and administrative and handling fee for returning the diamond. IGS Inc. would work with the buyer’s appraiser in coordinating the return of the diamond to the seller’s appraiser.  In fact , from my experience very, very few returns will actually  take place.  The appraiser, and only the appraiser   will send the diamond Fedex insured to the appraiser with all the matching documentation and certificates

          As a safeguard, the seller must tell the buyer’s appraiser that the only way the diamond may be released to the seller is if I, Martin Sheffield, personally call the buyer’s appraiser and verbally gives the appraiser permission to release the diamond. I, Martin Sheffield, will also send a diamond release form to the buyer’s appraiser that gives permission to the appraiser to release the diamond.  This form will also require the buyer to sign for the diamond.  Also, the seller should also notify the buyer’s appraiser that it is OK to release the diamond to the buyer.  The seller should prearrange a password with the buyer’s appraiser so that the buyer’s appraiser truly knows that it is indeed the seller calling and no one else.  The password’s are carefully handed out by Martin Sheffield and I will call or email the password directly to the seller and the appraiser.  Of course, the buyer’s appraiser will only be notified after the wired funds have been received by http://sellingyourdiamond.net.  IN TRUST for the seller.  The seller should print out the specific sheet from  the “Appraiser Instructions” section and deliver that sheet to the seller’s appraiser along with the diamond and matching GIA, AGS or other valid cert. Carefully following the above instructions will totally protect the seller.  The buyer’s appraiser will only release the diamond after http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net has received the funds and is holding the funds IN TRUST for the seller. The notification should come in the form of a faxed and signed written note as well as a telephone call to the buyer’s appraiser.

Step # 1

For your diamond ring get together all existing documentation such as any certificates (GIA, AGS, EGL) that you may have for the diamond plus any appraisals that you may have.   The next step is to get a current appraisal on the loose diamond.  To locate the best appraiser please visit http://www.diamondappraiser.net and scroll down to your state or province for recommended appraisers in your area.  Only deal with those appraisers that have a profile description.  These are appraisers that I know and can intervene if necessary so that they will comply with the procedures as outlined in Sellingyourdiamonds.com.  The appraisers on this site are carefully chosen and are top in their fields.  Have them perform an appraisal on the loose diamond.  It is very unlikely that an interested buyer would want to buy the ring but would be extremely interested in just the loose diamond.  Most buyers would have a specific setting in mind.  You may show them the existing setting and yes there is a possibility that they may purchase it however, chances are that they will want to purchase a specific setting or have one specially made up. The appraisal that you obtain from your local appraiser that you choose from http://www.diamondappraisers.net  should mention as well that the diamond matches any existing certificates.  If you don’t have a certificate then the appraiser would of course note what he believes the clarity, color and cut grade of the diamond to be. Also ask the appraiser to do a diamond inclusion plot as well as any photos of the loose diamond.  When the appraisal is done request that it be done in two parts:  part one is just on the loose diamond with a replacement value for the loose diamond only, and part two would be for the replacement value of the setting.  Your customer is often very specific about a setting and is usually more interested in the loose diamond. If the client does not like the setting, then fine, be happy to  sell the client the  loose diamond only.   You may sell the setting separately to someone else or you can use the setting and replace the sold diamond with a colored stone at a very reasonable price to make an absolutely gorgeous ring. 

          Set up an appointment with the appraiser to have the diamond ring fully appraised as outlined above. Most appraisers allow you to watch the appraisal process.  Explain to the appraiser that you wish to sell the diamond and that this appraisal is part of the procedure as specified on http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net   The appraiser would then submit to you his appraisal along with any photos and additional reports.  Please tell the appraiser that the ring is being advertised for sale on http://sellingyourdiamond.net and that the appraiser should keep a copy of the appraisal as well as photocopies of the GIA or AGS or EGL reports as well. The appraiser should also keep any files  of photos and other reports such as sarin reports on hand as well.   Also, if the appraiser can also email you all reports and photos in addition to giving you the originals this would be very helpful.  These emailed images can be filed on your computer and then emailed to mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com for uploading  to www.sellingyourdiamond.net      

Step # 2

          Determine the price that you feel would be appropriate for your diamond.  The best way to determine price is for myself, Martin Sheffield, to send you a list of very, very similar diamonds that match yours as closely as possible.  The list will contain the prices of the diamonds at the wholesale level.  You may also  go to different internet companies that sell diamonds and find a comparison diamond that matches in terms of clarity, color, cut grade as well as being similar in carat weight.   From the average price of a few similar diamonds I would deduct 10 to 20%.  You may also go to http://www.1americandiamondcalculator.com and use that diamond calculator to determine what the internet price would be and from the price given to you by the calculator then deduct approx. 10 to 20%.    One excellent site for you to go to is http://www.pricescope.com   This site has every quality of diamond listed to make it easy for you to obtain prices.  Again, once you have the price you would then deduct 10% to 20%.  Also,  the type of cert that you have is important.  If your diamond has a GIA cert then you can ask substantially more for the diamond than if it had an EGLISRAEL cert.  Whatever the pricescope price is simply deduct 10 to 20%  to arrive at the price you should be asking.   You may use a few of the above methods to arrive at a price and all your methods should be pretty well in agreement.  At the appraiser’s place you may ask him to give you the price that he feels you should be asking for the ring.  If you place an ad for your diamond on http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net  then please feel free to receive a complimentary quote on what I feel should be your correct approximate price that you sell the diamond for.  It’s this 10% to 20% that you take off that is giving the buyer the incentive to buy from you as opposed to going to a diamond internet site directly!!!

          Based on your research the price you ask is ultimately your decision.  Your customer will be doing their reseach at the same time and has a very good idea as to what he should be paying for the diamond.  Clients who place their ads on this site may call myself, Martin Sheffield, for a complimentary consultation and certainly feel free to ask my opinion in regards to the price that you should be asking.  

Step # 3         

          The next step is to have the diamond listed for sale on www.sellingyourdiamond.net    Simply email all the details of the diamond to mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com Your last name and address will not be revealed to potential customers.  The following information will be revealed to potential clients:  Your first name,  your state or province,    and your email.    You will be required to submit the following information: the shape, weight, clarity, color, cut grade and asking price for the diamond.  Please add any comments and descriptions that you would like to have appear in the ad.  Please send all photos of the diamonds and copies of certificates and reports to:  mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com   One document should be the appraisal as given to you by the independent appraiser that you’ve seen from  http://www.diamondappraisers.net  The other document should be the copy of the lab report of the diamond such as the GIA report, the AGS report, the EGL report or whatever other reports that  you may have.   Lastly, you can email up to 3 photos.  The most important photo should be the loose central diamond if you can.  Or, the whole ring and an enlarged photo of the part with the main diamond.

          Please email all the descriptions, certificates and photos in order that  all the information may  be uploaded to the classified section of www.sellingyourdiamond.net   Before any listing is posted it is reviewed to ensure that the proper procedures are done.  Once your diamond ring is listed then hopefully you will be receiving either calls or emails and you would deal directly with your clients.  Once you finish reading this entire section you will know what to say and how to efficiently and professionally serve your customer’s requirements.  The ad will remain up until such time that the diamond is sold.  Please notify www.sellingyourdiamond.net that the diamond has been sold.   www.sellingyourdiamonds.com reserves the right to terminate any ads at any time.   The normal  fee is  $125/item.  Certain items may have higher fees.  http://www.selling your diamond.net  reserves the right to charge more for certain very complicated items of extremely high value.  However, I expect the fee to be around $125. 00 in most instances.  This fee may be made by secure credit card payment over the phone  at 1 800 252 1476 or directly  online on our client protected encrypted site.  These instructions will be further detailed in the listing section.  This fee includes the set up and layout of your ad as well.

          Please note that this site is very heavily promoted on the following websites and should attract many people in the market for buying a diamond: 

http://www.usacerteddiamonds.com, 

http://www.diamondappraisers.net

http://www.diamondguide.net

http://www.diamondquotes.net

http://www.1americandiamondcalculator.net

http://www.independentgemservices.net

http://www.pricescope.com

most of the appraisers’ websites on http://www.diamondappraisers.net

 Currently, the ad will stay up indefinitely till your diamond is sold or till whenever you decide that you want to terminate the ad. 

           Should you have any questions or concerns you are welcome to call myself, Martin Sheffield President of  SellingYourDiamond.net, a division of IGS Inc. at 800 252 1476 .You may submit your ad  directly online on our client protected encrypted site.   Please go directly  to https://www.sellingyourdiamond.net/submit_your_diamond_ad.html or you may email me at mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com.  IGS Inc. will carefully explain the complete procedure to you so that the sale may be made virtually without assistance.   However, for clients who have paid for their ad I am here to assist to make the process as smooth as possible.  For sales involving spending considerably more time extra charges may apply.  Please understand that IGS Inc.  will not be liable for any losses or damages that may occur by following the advice of this site.   If you follow the guidelines very carefully everything should run smoothly and you should not only receive a fair payment for your diamond but you should be making your customer very happy as well.  However, IGS Inc. accepts absolutely no responsibility for any losses or damages that may occur.  Should you need helpful advice along the way please email me at mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com

          Once you get a call from a genuinely interested buyer the protocol would be to return the diamond to the appraiser in your city and let the appraiser send it to the interested party.  Never send the diamond directly to an interested party……it must always be sent by the appraiser.  Your appraiser will only forward the diamond to the bonafide accredited appraiser in the buyer’s state. The appraiser is one that the buyer has chosen by having visited http://www.diamondappraisers.net the same way that you, the seller, had chosen an appraiser.   It is acceptable to send the diamond to an appraiser on the list at http:www.diamondappraisers.net  It should be one of the denoted appraisers on http://www.diamondappraisers.net   Since these appraisers are truly bona fide, and truly professional you should feel very good about sending the diamond to them.  You would only have your appraiser (the seller’s appraiser) send the diamond to the appraiser in the buyer’s city if they basically said ‘yes’ they would purchase the diamond if it matches the GIA or AGS cert etc. etc.   The buyer would then set up an appointment at the appraiser.  You would contact the appraiser ahead of time to let them know that this buyer would be contacting them for an appointment and that the appraiser cannot release the diamond unless the seller is paid.  You tell the appraiser (buyer’s appraiser) that Martin Sheffield from http://www.buyingyourdiamond.net  will email him/her  a release form stating that he has been paid.   Be sure to give the official  password to  the buyer’s appraiser so that the appraiser knows for certain that when you speak to him/her that you are the true seller.  ONLY MARTIN SHEFFIELD ISSUES OUT THE PASSWORDS.   In the unlikely event that the diamond is not sold at the appraisers then it should be returned fully insured to only the seller’s appraiser. The only deliveries ever made are always ….”FROM ONE APPRAISER TO ANOTHER”.  At no point in time do you ever ship or receive a diamond from a client.   Only the buyer’s appraiser is allowed to send the diamond back to your original appraiser.   Most of the appraisers are more than pleased to assist the client with a new setting as well. 

          The last step would be to supply the buyer with the bank wire transfer information for “Sellingyourdiamond.net    Once I have received the funds IN TRUST for your diamond then I would  send a diamond release form letter to the buyer’s appraiser giving him/her permission to release the diamond to the buyer.  I would also personally phone up the appraiser and verbally give him permission to release the diamond to the client.    The purchaser may call the appraiser to say that he’s paid………but it’s only official till I, Martin Sheffield, call the appraiser ALONG WITH THE PASSWORD and email the release to the appraiser ALONG WITH THE PASSWORD. At no time is the password ever issued or released to the purchaser.  That’s it………..the sale has  been made …….professionally………and you received a fair  price for the diamond.  You, the seller, should be very pleased and the buyer should be very pleased as well.

          Also, it is very important when shipping the diamond that your appraiser is fully insured and  uses Fedex as your courier.  ONLY THE APPRAISER IS TO SHIP THE DIAMOND TO THE BUYER’S APPRAISER.  THE APPRAISER IS TO USE FEDEX OVERNIGHT SHIPPING AND HAVE FULL INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR THE PRICE THAT YOU ARE ASKING FOR THE DIAMOND. You should read and understand the section entitled, “Only the appraiser is to ship the diamond  to the buyer’s appraiser”.  If the diamond is not sold at the buyer’s appraisers and has to be returned, only the buyer’s appraiser can return the diamond to your (the seller’s) appraiser. 

          Although I mention it many times, please make sure that the appraiser fully understands that your client has not as yet paid for the diamond and that, under no circumstance, can the buyer’s appraiser release the diamond to the client until such time that I, Martin Sheffield,  have both verbally communicated over the phone with the appraiser and have given the appraiser permission.    It is imperative that the appraiser reads and fully understands this section of the site.  If there are any concerns please call myself, Martin Sheffield, and I will personally call the appraiser. As well, the appraiser cannot release the diamond until such time that he/she has received the “Diamond Release form” from myself, Martin Sheffield,  stating that the purchaser has paid you in full and that it is OK to release the diamond.   

          This whole concept and method of selling and purchasing diamonds is truly the most professional and respected way and benefits both the buyer and seller to the max.  However, all instructions have to be properly followed and if you are unsure of anything please don’t hesitate to mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com or call 800 252 1476. 

          IGS Inc.   will not be liable for any damages or liabilities whatsoever or however caused by following any or all of the contents and advice on this site.  Listing your diamond on this site does not guarantee that it will be sold and the amount that the diamond is sold for is strictly between you and the buyer.  This site is simply giving you the background structure of a system that has successfully worked connecting buyers and sellers for approx. 20 years at http://www.usacerteddiamonds.com   You are following the same basic formula or structure on this site however as a buyer you should be obtaining even better prices since the diamonds are being sold by the seller.   

          This is what you call an all round ‘win,,,win’ situation for both buyer and seller.    Why not take advantage of the excellent team of bona fide appraisers throughout the USA and Canada  that have undergone years of training and maintain impeccably high standards??

11.     Should your diamond not have a GIA or AGS or other valid report and you want to sell the diamond without bothering to obtain the report then have the diamond removed from the setting.  Only have a jeweler that the appraiser recommends to remove the diamond from the setting.  Then have the accredited bona fide appraiser from http://www.diamondappraisers.net  appraise just the loose diamond.  The appraisal should include the following:  shape, weight, dimensions, clarity, colour, cut grade, symmetry, polish, fluorescence check as well as sarin report, and inclusion plot.  This would make the appraisal just as valid as having a GIA or AGS or other valid report.  The buyer would also have his local bona fide appraiser in his city check the seller’s appraisal.  The diamond would be sent to the seller’s appraiser who would verify the appraisal by the buyer’s appraiser.  This way you can circumvent having a GIA or AGS or other valid report and the buyer has the assurance that it is being checked by two independent appraisers as well.  This method works extremely well.  So having a GIA or AGS or other valid report isn’t a necessity when it comes to selling your diamond.

As you can see, I, Martin Sheffield  am very actively involved in this process and am very sincere about protecting the buyer and seller from anything going wrong.  I am available at 800 252 1476 or mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com anytime for any questions.  At  the same time, I feel that I am promoting a great service that is certainly beneficial to both the buyer and seller.  I am one of the first persons in the diamond industry to look at the dark almost ‘negative’  side of privately selling a diamond and am trying to turn it into a positive and rewarding experience for both buyer and seller.  Most of the appraisers in the US know me quite well as at one time or another I have had diamonds sent to them in order to be verified for clients.  The only real difference here is that the diamond is not coming from the diamond supplier but coming from the seller’s appraiser………truly,  that’s the only difference.  I am supplying an amazing site to list your diamond with superior exposure to the right clientele. And, most important, I am at the helm making sure that everything runs smoothly.  Remember, all procedures must be followed and that I am here for any guidance and questions and you should find the experience of selling your diamond very rewarding.
