Ralph Mueller & Associates: The Best Place to Sell Diamonds in Phoenix
The jewelry buyers at Ralph Mueller & Associates offer a professional appraisal by a GIA gemologist, so you know you're getting the best price for your diamonds.
The diamond’s weight is measured in carats. One carat is equivalent to approximately one-fifth of a gram.
Each diamond is cut to enhance its brilliance, or the amount of light that the stone reflects. Certain cuts result in a more brilliant diamond. The following is assessed to determine the cut of a diamond:
• Girdle Size
• Pavilion Depth
• Total Depth
• Crown Angle
If the cut is off, the diamond may retain or leak light, which results in a less brilliant diamond.
The color of the diamond is categorized into a specific grade ranging from colorless to coffee-colored. Each diamond is evaluated from the side, under optimal lighting conditions.
Although there are some exquisite diamonds that receive a flawless grade of clarity, most diamonds have some degree of inclusions or flaws within the stone. These small specks of minerals or crystals are formed within the stone as it is being created.
After the jewelry buyer has the diamond evaluated by GIA professionals, you will be informed of how it is graded on clarity, color, cut and carat weight. This will help you make a more informed decision when it comes time to sell your gorgeous diamond. The jewelry buyers at Ralph Mueller & Associates (http://diamondbuyersofaz.com/
