How Much Money Will I Get For My Designer Emerald Jewelry?
One of the first questions you may be asking yourself as you begin the selling process is: How much is my designer emerald jewelry worth? There are a few primary factors that will affect the value of your designer emerald jewelry :
|Attribute||Effect on Emerald Value|
|Color||Color has a very large impact on the value of your emerald. Your emerald will be assessed based on three attributes: hue, saturation, and tone. Hue refers to the actual color of your emerald. The most desirable emerald hues are bluish green to a pure green hue. Tone refers to the lightness or darkness of the color. Dark emeralds are generally more valuable than lighter emeralds, but an emerald that is too dark may be lower in value. Saturation refers to the strength or intensity of the hue. The most valuable emeralds have a vivid color saturation.|
|Clarity||Clarity refers to the inclusions (or flaws) that exist within your emerald. Most emeralds contain a number of inclusions, so the presence of inclusions does not have a huge effect on the worth of your emerald. Still, the more eye-visible inclusions on your emerald and the more these inclusions affect the transparency of your emerald, the more they will reduce the value of your item.|
|Cut||An emerald’s cut can affect the depth of the stone’s color, its durability, and the appearance of inclusions within the stone. Because they are brittle and delicate gems, emeralds can be difficult to cut. Generally, a cut that maximizes the visual appeal of your emerald will increase its value.|
|Carat Weight||The greater the carat weight of your emerald, the more valuable.|
|Origin||The geographic source of your emerald can also have an impact on its value. Some of the most popular emeralds hail from Colombia, Zambia, Brazil, and Zimbabwe.|
|Treatment||There are various treatments that your emerald may have undergone. Some of the most common treatments for emeralds include filling surface-reaching fractures with oils, waxes, or artificial resins to improve the clarity of the emerald, and putting colored dyes into the emerald to improve its color. Untreated emeralds are typically more valuable than treated emeralds.|
If you are uncertain about the characteristics of your designer emerald jewelry , you can have your gem analyzed by a professional. Some of the most trusted sources of information are AGL, Gübelin, and GIA. Providing these reports to your buyer will ensure they can accurately assess and price your designer emerald jewelry .
Made from the mineral beryl, emeralds are defined by their green color. The green color stems from trace amounts of chromium and vanadium within the beryl. When a beryl gem exhibits a very light shade of green, it will be considered a green beryl rather than an emerald. There is no precise standard for the distinction between an emerald and a green beryl, so categorizing the two types of gems can be a very subjective process. It is important to have an expert assess your designer emerald jewelry in order to receive an accurate valuation.
Once you are ready to sell your designer emerald jewelry, one of the most difficult decisions is picking the right selling method. Some of the most popular selling options are:
- Pawnshop – Selling to a pawnshop can be a convenient, quick option. Still, a pawnshop owner will likely not have the necessary expertise to price your designer emerald jewelry accurately. Additionally, a pawnshop owner may simply be looking to flip your designer emerald jewelry to a specialist dealer for a quick profit, profit that you could have kept for yourself.
- Auction House – An auction house will have the experience and knowledge to sell your designer emerald jewelry, but the auction process can be lengthy and there is no guarantee of sale. It can also be difficult to find the right auction house for your piece. Furthermore, an auction house may set the reserve low and your item could be purchased for a cheap price.
- Jeweler on Consignment – Selling to a jeweler on consignment can fetch a high price, but it can be a long selling process and there may be high fees involved. Additionally, many jewelers may not be knowledgeable about the particularities of colored gemstones.
- Online Specialist Buyer – Selling to an online specialist buyer like WP Diamonds is an easy, secure process. The expertise and extensive experience of the specialist buyer will ensure you receive an accurate valuation and fair price.

The Legacy of Emeralds
Emerald gemstones are so alluring not only because of their beautiful appearance, but also because of their great historical significance. The oldest emeralds date back almost 2.97 billion years to South Africa. Since then, emeralds have held an important place in history. Cleopatra was enamored with emeralds and incorporated them in her lavish jewelry collection. During her rule, Cleopatra took control of the emerald mine near the Red Sea, the only emerald mine known to the Ancient world. Written records from Antiquity suggest that Roman emperor Nero wore emerald sunglasses to correct his vision and block out the sun. One of the largest emeralds in existence, the 217.8-carat Mogul Mughal Emerald, belonged to a ruler in the Aurangzeb dynasty in India, where emeralds were greatly sought-after. When Hernán Cortés returned from his New World exploration in the 1500s, he brought back with him many notable emeralds, including the legendary Isabella Emerald, named after Queen Isabella of Portugal. Emeralds have held a prized position in history, adorning some of the famous individuals for thousands of years.
