How Much Is My Green Diamond Worth?

Green diamonds are incredibly valuable on the secondhand market. The ultimate value of your green diamond is primarily dependent on the following factors:

  1. Color
  2. Cut
  3. Clarity
  4. Carat Weight


Color is one of the greatest determinants of the worth of your green diamond. A diamond’s color is analyzed based on three attributes—hue, saturation, and tone. Hue signifies the actual color of your diamond, green. Green diamonds often also contain secondary hues like yellow, blue, brown, or gray. When green diamonds exhibit secondary hues of colors that are less valuable than green, such as yellow, brown, or gray, the presence of the secondary hue lowers the value of the diamond. When green diamonds exhibit secondary hues of colors that are more valuable than green, the presence of the secondary color increases the value of the diamond. In general, the more pure the color of your diamond, the more valuable it is. Tone refers to the color’s lightness or darkness, and saturation refers to the color’s depth and strength. Depending on its hue, saturation, and tone, your green diamond will be categorized as one of the following color intensities (ranging from least intense to most intense):

  1. Fancy Light Green
  2. Fancy Green
  3. Fancy Intense Green
  4. Fancy Vivid Green
  5. Fancy Deep Green

This color label will have a large impact on the value of your diamond. In addition, green diamonds can have “patches” of color left over from the original polishing process. Sometimes, the cutter will leave these patches on the diamond to enhance the color. These patches are typically noted in the “comments” section of the GIA grading report and can inhibit the value of the green diamond.



A diamond’s cut can greatly affect its worth. A good cut can make a diamond more visually appealing and can maximize your diamond’s color intensity, increasing the value of your item. Furthermore, certain cuts will be in higher demand on the market at the time of sale, and will fetch more money on the secondhand market than less popular cut styles.



Another important factor when assessing your green diamond’s value is its clarity. Clarity refers to how flawless the diamond is. Inclusions (imperfections within your diamond) and blemishes (surface-level flaws) will lower your item’s worth.


Carat Weight

Carat weight will have a significant impact on the price your green diamond can fetch on the secondhand market. Generally, the more carats your diamond weighs, the greater its value. As carat size increases, the price-per-carat value will also grow at an increasing rate due to the rarity of larger colored diamonds.

Why Are Green Diamonds So Valuable?

Green diamonds are valuable because of their uniqueness. Natural green diamonds are created only when diamond deposits reside near radioactive rocks underneath the earth. Radioactivity displaces carbon atoms from their usual position in the diamond’s crystal lattice structure, causing the diamond to exhibit a green hue. The rarity of this process is one of the main reasons why green diamonds are so valuable today.

Where Can I Sell My Green Diamond?

There are a few popular options to choose from when deciding where to sell your green diamond online.


Options Pros Cons
Auction House Can potentially fetch a high price with enough time. No guarantee of sale. Can be difficult to find the right auction house for your item. Lengthy process. The reserve may be set low and someone may purchase your diamond at a bargain.
Jeweler (on consignment) Able to reach a targeted market of those actively looking to buy diamonds. Likely not knowledgeable about the particularities of the colored diamond market. Fees involved. Lengthy process.
Pawnshop Quick process. Pawnshop owner will likely not have necessary experience to price your item accurately. Will likely turn diamond around by selling to a specialized color diamond buyer for a quick profit—profit you could have kept for yourself.
Online Expert Buyer Convenient, fast process. Experts have the knowledge to price your item accurately. Selling through an online expert buyer such as WP Diamonds will ensure highly competitive prices. Appointments are available in limited locations
