Sell Diamonds Online

Have you ever wondered about selling your diamonds online? You’ve probably searched on Google about selling diamonds online and came across a few websites. But you may still be on the fence about sending your valuable piece to someone you have never met in your life. Which is completely understandable.

There are a number of companies out there on the web which specialize in the purchasing of luxury goods. And one of them that seem to stick out like a sore thumb is Luxury Buyers. The name itself says it all. The company has been in the luxury buying industry for many decades and has definitely made a name for itself in the luxury industry.

There are very few companies out there that actually know about certain jewelry pieces such as estate jewelry, Mikimoto Jewelry, and Graff jewelry, to name a few.mikimoto_pearl_banner

The main thing that you should be concerned about is whether or not the business that you are seeking to sell your diamonds to actually is accredited and run by experts in the industry. And when I talk about accredited I am not talking about the BBB either. Since the BBB themselves aren’t accredited.

As you can see, it is very easy for any business, even if they are not reputable in any way; to become a company accredited by the prestigious BBB. Lookout for those companies that flaunt their BBB grade, because those are the one’s that are probably hiding something from the consumer by showing off that fake grade that cost them over $400 to get.

Money can’t by happiness, but it sure can buy business. It is always best to do research on any subject matter so that you have a better understanding about who you are doing business with and who you should keep from doing business with or have any relationships with.

Diamonds Are Forever – Or Are They?

Are Diamonds Really Forever?

In this video, Edward Jay Epstein is interviewed and asked about this very question regarding diamond being forever.

Back in 1980 you wrote a cover story in The Atlantic Called “Have you ever tried to sell a diamond?” which today is among the 12 best magazine articles in history. Why did a story about the diamonds industry have such a long lasting impact?

The impact that this cover story had was that people had the idea that diamonds would always increase in value. Hence why the famous line of “diamonds are forever” came to existence. In reality, the value of diamonds is not based on reality but on an advertising campaign.

You say the modern diamonds business was an invention of an international cartel. How was it created?

Going back to the late 1880s in which diamonds where truly a rare gem. Very few existed and were found in rivers by pure chance/luck. Later, prospectors in south Africa found a blue shape in the city of kimberley. So they began digging this blue earth. They found that there were diamonds by the ton within this material. They essentially dug out millions of diamonds. As a result of this some diamonds went from being rare to being the most common elements in the world. Simply mining them like you would coal or copper.

So people got together and put together a cartel to restrict how many diamonds would be able to come out of the earth per year and into the diamond market. First they figured out how many diamonds would need to be taken out and put on the market by first finding out how many people were going to be getting engaged per year. Young people being the main target market for these gems.

Once they had the number set. They controlled it. And the next thing was, to build the price up. This all took place between 1910-Present.

Are diamonds rare?

They were rare a long time ago. Now they are the second most item in America. The first being television sets.

How did De Beers create this illusion that diamonds are so scarce that they are forever?

large-diamond-engagement-ringsThe diamond cartel, when they became organized and were able to control supply. Which controlling the supply at that time wasn’t that difficult since there were only a few diamond mines in that time. They had to create demand along with keeping control of supply. One way was advertising, and another was basically product placement such as putting diamonds in movies and songs. Building a popular idea that diamonds and love are connected.

With the man chasing a woman and the only resort to catching that woman being; buying a diamond and presenting it to her in a fancy little box. This is the illusion that needed to be implanted into the minds of everyone in the U.S. then across the world.

In Hollywood movies, diamonds are associated with love. How did diamonds become part of the Hollywood mythology?

America is a country of immigrants. But everyone went through the same process of watching movies that were first silent movies and then the movies with sound. And in those movies they got a picture of how you get your woman.

All of these movies do a good job at portraying the illusion of how to get it done.

So basically these cartels would bribe producers into making the theme of their movies around diamonds in exchange for a diamond.

They would have the main character of a movie which of course needed to be a man, giving the woman a diamond that would surprise her. Showing that giving a woman a dbright_crystal_diamond_1_highdefinition_picture1iamond would be the best form of captivating them and showing your love for them.

This essentially served as getting the message across that diamond and love went together just like ham and eggs.
