I Vouch For These Buyers ::
The following stores I have fully and completely tested as diamond sellers, and verified their backgrounds. I personally vouch for their integrity and customer care.
Keith Shaftel is one of the original diamond dealers online, and a member of the Diamond Dealers Club of America. His family has been operating as Diamond Buyers USA to buy diamonds from across the country since 1978. I have known Keith for over a decade, and have used his expertise many times for his special knowledge about larger diamonds above 6 carats (but he buys and sells all sizes).
They have a very unique video check-in procedure, where you are able to watch a video as they open your package, evaluate your diamond jewelry, and write you a check – all from the comfort of your own home. It really helps you feel safe!
Service to sell your fine, GIA or AGS certified diamonds on consignment, to get more cash for your diamonds.
