I am wondering if someone can advise me about Diamond upgrading.

I''m English and we don''t have this here. If I buy a .75 Diamond ring, does the upgrade policy mean I can trade it in after a while of having it? Is it a way to get on the Diamond ladder so to speak?
I can spend approximately $3000 on a Diamond now and would keep on saving with the hope of eventually ending up with a much larger stone. Is there a limit to how many times you can upgrade your Diamond?

Thanks for reading

Hi Maise!

Yes, that''s how it works, with vendors who have an upgrade policy. Say you spend 3000.00 on a stone, when you upgrade, that amount goes towards your next purchase. And as far as I know, you can just keep going and going and going...

Just one more thing (I forgot to ask before) - What do they do with the Diamonds which are traded in? Do they just clean them up and resell them?

Yes, they send them back to the lab for a new report, and polish them up. If there''s any damage, that is fixed also.

Voila, just like new.

I think thats really nice! I like the idea of getting a Diamond that someone has loved and the fact that its been upgraded shows they are still going strong!


Maybe I am getting a bit sentimental in my old age lol!
