How YOU can get the Most $$ Money when Selling
GEMS to Dealers!
 
 
SELLING COLORED STONES
 Why its so hard to sell back color?
 
My friend Ankur tells me that the market is flooded with TREATED stones. This has causes the price of most colored gems to drop dramatically. It costs more money to sort them, than to cut new gems. 
 
Matt Winward of MD Diamonds buys OTC (over the counter) color, but he says it is very difficult because gemstones that have been in rings are most likely damaged.

Matt says the cost and time fix a gem makes it cost prohibitive. Also, it is capital intensive to buy color. Not just the initial purchase, but also expensive in terms of education, equipment, and trustworthy people.

STEP #1 GET THE CZ's OUT

If you can frost your CZs out, you can get more money for your melee.

 

STEP #2  SIEVE IT

Sorting is very time consuming, but sieving is easy and helps you get more profit! There are three main plates you need. Sizes 16, 11 and 6. Each size is a different price point. You get more money by separating the price points.

HOW TO SELL MELEE  DIAMONDS TO DEALERS

 

Take your parcel and

do one of two things.

 

1. If there is a trade

show, take your

parcel there. Shop it

to different booths.

Find the dealer that

pays the most, and send them your future melee.

 

2. Split your parcel into 3 sections.

Send 3 smaller parcels to 3 different buyers. Take the highest offer.

 

 
HOT TIP!
CLEAN MELEE GETS 
TWICE AS MUCH MONEY AS DIRTY! 

Amit did the research.

He showed THE SAME

 parcel before and after cleaning it and got very different offers! 

 

$70 for dirty verses $140/ct just for cleaning it. Be sure to clean your melee in the

ultrasonic before you

sell it.

YOU WISH YOU COULD PUT UP IN YOUR STORE!
