Princess cut diamonds are particularly popular in engagement rings, tiaras and earrings. They are often used in “past, present and future” rings which combine three stones on an engagement ring to symbolise a couple’s shared love for each other.
Not surprisingly, jewelry featuring princess cut diamonds is often referred to as being fit for royalty. Princess Mary of Denmark marked her 2004 marriage to Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark with an 18-carat gold wedding band featuring 24 princess cut diamonds.
What to consider before you pawn, sell or raise loans on princess cut diamonds
The market for diamonds tends to fluctuate so it’s worth getting an expert and accurate valuation before asking yourself “do I wish to pawn or sell my princess cut diamond” or raise a loan on princess cut diamonds?
Diamonds are, of course, forever. The three big factors to consider when weighing up options for selling a princess cut diamond are its size, its attributes and who you sell it to. Bigger is usually better when it comes to a diamond’s value but just as important are its color, clarity and cut. A luxury pawn shop can be the best way to sell a diamond because of the high-end clientele who can be willing to pay high prices and the convenience of getting the money almost instantly.
Even if you consider that your princess cut diamond may not be worth as much as you hope because it isn’t particularly old, the princess cut is a contemporary style which means modern cutting techniques are likely to have been used which can retain more brilliance than antique pieces.
