How Are Gold and Diamonds Evaluated

Gold is measured by its weight as well as purity. The weight of your jewelry is measured using the standard worldwide weighing system for precious metals. The heavier the weight, the higher the value. Purity is measured in karats and usually stamped on the piece with 12K, 18K, 20K, or 24K. Once the weight and purity have been determined, the team at our jewelry store will check the current market price of gold to determine the current value of your piece. 

The value of diamonds is determined by their color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. To determine the color grade, jewelers look at how colorless the diamond is. If there are visible yellow tints, these diamonds are graded lower. Diamonds that lack visible colors are considered the highest quality. Jewelers then look at the clarity by looking at how many natural flaws can be seen in the stone. Those with imperfections that cannot be seen easily with a 10x loupe are the most valuable. The cut is looked at next. The closer the stone's proportion is to the ideal standard for its particular cut, the more valuable it is. Carat weight is determined next as bigger diamonds are more valuable as bigger stones are rarer.
