Diamond and jewelry pricing is largely based on the supply and demand for a particualr item in particular markets. Being a globally desired luxury good, they are traded in various markets around the world, where various preferences exist that can lead to higher prices achieved for certain diamonds or pieces of fine jewelry.
At Meridian Diamond, we spend a great deal of time and efforts on reaching out to the international markets that are currently strongest for particular jewelry items, in order to maximize their value upon the time of their sale, in addition to having retail outlets for certain items as well. These markets have an above average demand for certain items, which is reflected through higher prices, thus allowing Meridian to sell your items for more, and in-turn allowing us to pay you more up-front.
Many buyers in the market place are limited by their reach and marketplaces in which they sell to, where as Meridians extensive knowledge and selling specialists are essentially working for clients on a daily basis to maximize the value upon time of sale for both parties.
