0.2ct to 0.49ct: LD Gems buys diamond pointers of 20 points up to half a carat of all shapes, cuts, colours and clarities. We grade these stones by splitting into size groups, 0.20-0.29 carats, 0.30-0.39 carats, and 0.40-0.49 carats and for large volumes, generating a price per carat for each size group. For very high grade stones in these categories we will grade and price each individually, but pointers are generally treated in parcels, and are graded and valued as such.

Large Stones

0.5 carats +: for diamonds of half a carat and up, unless the grade of the stone is very low and groups of this size category are sold in low-grade parcels, in which case we will grade and value the parcel in the same way as for pointers, larger diamonds are graded and valued by LD Gems individually. Our trained diamond graders will grade each stone according to the standards set by GIA, and we will value according to the market price which itself generally is referenced to the Rapaport Diamond Report, published weekly. The higher grade and therefore price of a larger stone, the longer our grading team will take to value. Diamonds larger than 3 carats will often internally require a second opinion as to grade, and will be escalated to the Head of Valuation for a price, so it may take longer to value compared to 0.50 carats to 2.99 carat stones.

Diamond Jewelry

Pawnbrokers and gold buyers form a healthy percentage of our client base and we buy large quantities of diamonds that are still in their settings.
