Selling your jewelry is not one of the easiest
tasks. To give you some guidance please take some time to understand diamond pricing.
some explanation to outline pricing in diamonds:
Because of the numerous levels of distribution, there
is rarely ever a single wholesale price. Most often a range of wholesale prices
exist as a diamond is prepared for marketing and travels through the pipeline
of distribution to the final consumer. Sales taxes are usually not applicable
to these prices.
Retail Diamond Market:
The position in the marketplace composed of parties that sell to the end users.
Buyers in this market purchase for their personal use with no intention of reselling
in the future for profit.
Retail Diamond Price:
Ever since the word retail became synonymous with "price gouging" in
the 1940s, many retailers have actively distanced themselves from the title of
"retailer." In fact, many retailers would like you to believe they are
wholesalers and exaggerate this market position to suggest are getting a better
value. It usually represents a markup of 2 - 3 times
the manufacturer's cost .

to help you consider the following:
The facet proportions, length/width ratios, shape outline, the amount of weight
that does not contribute to beauty.
The influence of the fluorescence on a diamond's transparency.
