3. How is my jewelry evaluated? We take into account the demand & desirability of your jewelry. A few aspects which impact value are the designer, age, condition, and quality. We do not purchase jewelry based on weight, but as independent pieces of jewelry.

4. Do I need a GIA certificate in order to sell my diamonds? No, a GIA certificate is not required in order to sell your diamond. We frequently buy diamonds without any grading reports. It is our job to apply the same standards and grading techniques that the GIA uses in order to properly evaluate your diamond.

We specialize in finding value above and beyond its intrinsic value. Understanding styles, jewelry genres, gemstone quality and the best markets available for each item makes dealing with Harold Stevens invaluable.

7. How will I be paid? We offer 3 payment methods; check, cash, or wire transfer.

8. Will you take the diamond out of my ring? No, it is not necessary. In some instances, if we feel the diamond is of a higher quality and if it makes sense to remove the diamond to grade it loose we will always ASK first.
