    SteveL has given you a great price and a very good explanation, too. I would not be able to do any better. Good luck in the quest to sell it!

    Hi,
    If you were to come in my store selling this diamond, I would offer you in the $1,600 to $1,800 range. I think you will find this to be a decent offer from a jeweler. Some may offer a little more, and many will offer much less. This of course depends on the GIA report not being more than a year or so old.My suggestion is to find a jeweler to sell it for you. In this type transaction in my store you would receive closer to the $2,300 mark. Depending on the store and the margins they work on, you could get a little more or less.If you can find a retail customer you would probably sell it for around the $2,800 to 3,000 dollar range, but you must find a retail customer that isn't net savy. This diamond is selling on the net for about $2,600.These are general numbers to use in making a marketing decision on your part. They can all vary by who you speak to.Good luck!------------------
