Sell Engagement Ring

  • The Benefits of Selling Diamonds Online


    As you may have seen, Have You Seen The Ring recently released an eBook, available for free download, detailing the process of selling an engagement ring online from start to finish. If you're planning on selling your jewelry online, it's highly recommended that you give it a read-through so that you know what to expect.
    However, if you're still on the fence about whether to sell with Have You Seen the Ring or elsewhere, then you should know these facts about why we're the premier place to sell online.

    Sellers can Make More Money
    When a person buys or sells ring through, for example, CraigsList or EBay, they're taking a huge risk. There are many stories in the news about both buyers and sellers not getting what they expected out of the deal. Have You Seen The Ring, however, does the process extremely securely. We act as a middle-man, holding payments in escrow until the jewelry is certified, to make sure that the buyer gets a fine piece of jewelry and the seller gets the money they are owed. For that reason, buyers are willing to pay more money – typically, 50% to 60% more – on our site because of the security and the lack of hassle.
    HYSTR is Accredited
    There are tons of sites online where you can buy and sell jewelry, among other things. Not all these sites are legitimate, though. Have You Seen the Ring is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and has been established since 2010. When people sell their engagement rings through us, they can rest assured they'll get the amount (minus our small commission fee) they have been promised.
    It's Free to List
    Many other websites on the internet, including big-name sites like Etsy, charge a fee just to list an item. At Have You Seen the Ring, you can create an account and list your jewelry for absolutely no cost. That way, if your ring doesn't sell or you change your mind about selling it, you don't lose any money.
    It's Free to Ship
    Finally, Have You Seen the Ring is one of the only sites that pays for you to ship the ring to a buyer. When you accept an offer on HYSTR, we'll send you a postage-paid FedEx insured shipping label so you can deliver the jewelry to our office safely. The insurance adds to your peace of mind, too.
  • Man Sells Engagement Ring Once Owned By Satan... Herself!

    A ex-husband recently got creative when trying to sell the engagement once worn by his wife. Using craiglist he advertized the ring as having one problem. "The ring has got some major history. For a short time, the diamond was worn by "Satan herself," he then goes on to describe the unbelievable horror the ring has brought into his life since it was purchased. (You know, small things like "downed power lines" and "swarms of locust.")"

  • Top Tips to Safely Sell Your Engagement Ring or Diamond

    Recent crimes surrounding Craigslist transactions, where sellers were scammed or physically harmed, have raised questions as to the safety of selling engagement rings to strangers.  Emily Graham's story is the latest to make national headlines. Graham, who flew to St. Louis to meet a buyer for her $19,000 engagement ring, was driven to a warehouse where she was robbed and assaulted. 

    When selling engagement rings online, it is important to follow safety precautions.  Below are several suggestions to ensure your safety.
    1) Don't go at it alone One mistake that sellers frequently make is to agree to meet a stranger on their own.  Be sure to meet with a potential buyer at a time when a friend or relative can join you.  By having company, you reduce the chances of becoming a crime victim.
    2) Meet somewhere public While you may have the urge to have privacy for the sale of your engagement ring, meeting in public guarantees a much higher level of safety.  Suggestions for public meeting places include busy cafes, the post office, or at a police station.  A local jeweler is the safest place to meet to sell your engagement ring.  In this case, the buyer can also have the ring verified by the jeweler, providing a safer experience for all parties.
    3) Never share private information Resist the urge to tell the buyer where you live or where you work.  Although it may seem like friendly conversation, these details could help a criminal target you and your family.  As for the buyer you are meeting, we recommend trying to ascertain and confirm as many details as possible regarding their employment and their address.  If you are able to determine their employer, give the employer a call to confirm that the individual does work there.  If they feel comfortable providing their address, use www.whitepages.com to see whether it matches.  Confirming these details will increase the chances that you are meeting a buyer with good intentions.
    4) Trust experienced sellers If you're buying your ring on eBay, do not trust sellers with low feedback scores.  While new buyers need to start building their feedback somehow, you don't want to be the person to work through the kinks with them.  We recommend setting your eBay preferences so that only buyers with 3 or more positive feedbacks are able to bid on your auctions.  Even if a buyer has positive feedback, ensure that you gather enough information about them to prove they are legitimate.  For sites outside eBay, we suggest working with businesses that are Better Business Bureau accredited.  This accreditation ensures that the business has a proven track record of honesty and integrity.  These businesses will proudly display the BBB logo on their websites.  In addition, you can contact the BBB to confirm that the business is a member in good standing.
    5) Cash is kingMany scams on Craigslist and eBay involve fake checks, money orders, and money transfers.  For Craigslist transactions, no matter how much you are selling an item for, insist that the buyer pays you in cash.  If a buyer balks at bringing thousands of dollars in cash, suggest that you meet at their bank.  If they resist this idea, you know there's something going on.  On eBay, watch out for fake Paypal payments.  Every month thousands of eBay sellers are duped into shipping merchandise to buyers who have faked Paypal Payment Confirmations.  We recommend calling Paypal to verify that the funds are in your account prior to shipping any items.  In addition, we suggest only shipping to US addresses as many fraudulent activities come from international sources.
    The most important rule of selling your engagement ring online is to use good judgment.  If something about a transaction doesn't feel right or you aren't sure if a buyer is legitimate, remember that your safety is more important than selling a ring.

  • How To Sell Engagement Rings and Used Diamonds

    In order to safely get the best price for your jewelry, Jerry Ehrenwald, President and CEO of the International Gemological Institute (IGI), one of the world’s leading diamond certifying laboratories, advises the following:


    1)     Try to sell directly to the consumer
    2)     Use good judgment
    3)     Understand the realistic resale value

    Try to sell directly to the consumer
    When you are looking to sell engagement rings or used diamonds, Ehrenwald says, “to get the best price for your jewelry, you need to sell as close to the consumer as possible. Jewelry stores and pawnshops have high overhead expenses to cover, and their expenses will reduce how much of the piece’s sale price ends up in your pocket”.

    You can try to advertise your jewelry online on a website such as Craigslist, however if you have responsibly attempted to use Craigslist in the past, you will know that some members are untrustworthy or time wasters.

    Ehrenwald suggests, “one of the quickest ways to sell engagement rings may be through a jewelry store or a pawn shop. Just realize that the further you get from the consumer, the less you should expect to profit.” If you choose to sell your used engagement ring or diamond this way, you will at best receive between 20% and 25% of the original purchase price.

    ‘Cash for Gold’ or ‘Cash for Diamond’ companies are at the far end of the spectrum, furthest away from the consumer. From a seller’s point of view, this should be your last resort. If you have found yourself using this option, then you are also probably pretty close to selling one of your kidneys for cash!

    Sites like Have You Seen the Ring bring consumers directly to you. Our customers are willing to pay the best prices for pre-owned items, as we offer quality guarantees through our Gemologist Verification process

    Use Good Judgment
          I.        If you try to sell the jewelry yourself, never share your home address or personal information. Never meet a potential buyer at your home. Arrange meetings in a public place (like a police station), and it would be wise to bring a friend or family member.
         II.        If you want to sell online seek out an established company with a great reputation. A quick and easy way to do this is to look for a company that is Better Business Bureau accredited.

    Understand the realistic resale value
    If you choose to get your jewelry appraised, it’s important to make the appraiser aware that you’re looking for the liquidation price of the item, rather than the replacement value. “There are different levels of valuating,” Ehrenwald explains. “Tell the appraiser you’re looking to liquidate your piece and need to get the highest price that you can.” If the appraiser thinks you’re asking what it would cost to replace the ring for insurance purposes, the value will be much higher than what you can sell the piece for yourself. And brace yourself; Ehrenwald says it’s unrealistic to expect to sell your piece for near the retail value, which means you’ll get less than you paid for it. You may even have to settle for less than the liquidation value, but at least you’ll have a better idea of your asking price.
