According to Marylin Monroe, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. We happen to think that way too, especially when a girl can make some money selling her old diamonds! At Philly Pawn Shop Express, we pride ourselves on being able to get you the most money for your diamonds!
First, we have to explain how we value a diamond, often called "The Four C’s": carat weight, quality of cut, clarity, and color. Carat weight, is almost exactly what it sounds like, the weight of the diamond. A 2-carat diamond will be more expensive than a 1-carat diamond. The second C, quality of cut, is how the gem is cut. Depending on the type of cut, the gem may be worth more. Third, is the clarity of the diamond. The less laser lines, chips, and breaks in the diamond, the more it will be worth. Finally, the fourth C, color. All diamonds may appear to have the same color, but some diamonds have more of a yellow or brown tint to them. Using special magnifying glasses, our staff member will determine the color.
Once your diamond has been appraised, you will be given a fair price, often higher than most of our competitors! We make sure that you get the most money possible for your diamonds. Selling or pawning your diamonds has never been easier! Come by our shop at 731 Chestnut Street, in the heart of Center City Philadelphia to get your diamonds appraised and sold today!
