If I pawn or sell my Graff jewelry & diamonds, how much will it be worth?
There are numerous factors that will be considered during the evaluation of your Graff jewelry including the material, gemstones, and manufacturer. We explore these factors in more detail below.
Material: What your jewelry is predominately constructed of will affect its value. While silver is less likely to be considered fine jewelry, platinum, yellow and rose gold items are often considered more valuable.
Gemstones: Physical elements of a gemstone can be valued quite easily, such as its weight and clarity. Other characteristics, such as color and origin can be more difficult to determine. It is therefore vital to trust your evaluation to an expert, such as the experts at Pawnbrokers of Rodeo Drive, who will be able to properly value the worth of any gemstones your Graff jewelry may feature.
Manufacturer: The authenticity of your Graff jewelry will naturally be analysed at your appointment. You can help this process by bringing all the relevant paperwork to your valuation, such as a bill of sale and any information you have about the heritage of the jewelry. As jewelry is often a personal item, an interesting history involving its previous owners, if proved to be true, can add value to an item.

Aside from the above criteria, other factors can increase the price of your Graff jewelry, such as if it contains a rare gemstone. Fellows auction house in the UK saw one of its largest-ever sales from the Graff Fancy Yellow Diamond Ring. The ring was sold for $1.6m, and it commanded such a high price due to the rare yellow color of the diamond which occurred due to nitrogen atoms being present while the diamond was forming. Graff has a long, successful history with colored diamonds, including the Graff Pink. The 24.78-carat Graff Pink was sold at Sotheby’s in 2010 for an outstanding $46.2 million.
