    “Daniel from Burlington antiques is so professional and easy to deal with, I have used his services twice and would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling high-value goods. He takes all the stress and hassles out of selling by coming to your own house and makes a transfer for the item while you wait. I couldn’t recommend his services more.”


    What Price Will I Get For My Diamond Ring?

    Diamonds, regardless of size or weight, will typically fetch an admirable price. However, the cost of each antique diamond ring will vary depending on multiple factors, such as the size of the diamond, the type of ring it’s crafted on, the period and other variables including the market price at the time of valuation. If your ring also features white gold or another form of precious metal, this will also be taken into account. This is why we do not offer prices or even estimations. 

    To have your cut diamond or antique ring valued, we will have to personally inspect and value it. We also buy and have for sale the following diamond jewellery:

    • Antique diamond rings
    • Modern diamond rings
    • Brooches
    • Bracelets
    • Necklaces
    • Earrings
    • Pendants

    Are antique diamond rings worth more than contemporary diamond rings?

    Not necessarily. Antique diamond rings with some sort of historical significance may be worth more than your standard modern diamond ring, but this is quite rare. In most cases, unless there is something discernible about the antique diamond ring, such as a desirable art deco design,  it will fetch a similar price to a modern diamond ring. It’s also worth noting that antique diamond rings are usually warmer in colour due to their age, which may influence the price.

    Do antique diamond rings hold their value?

    Antique diamond rings will have older cuts that, in some cases, may not maximise the gemstone’s brilliance. Contemporary cuts can achieve a greater aesthetic because of new diamond cutting techniques. In most cases, the better the diamond is cut, the more expensive the ring or jewellery will be.

    How can you tell if my diamond ring is genuine?

    Our experience in buying and selling precious gemstones for over 20 years has allowed us to hone our craft to an extremely high standard. We can tell if a diamond is genuine in seconds by inspecting the gem using a special magnifying glass. All genuine diamonds, when magnified, will have imperfections in them (known as inclusions), this is the telltale sign that the diamond is real and not a fake.
