Diamonds by Design launches brand new auction service

Sydney-based Diamonds by Design is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new service to customers. Owner of the store, Karen Lindley, a qualified gemmologist, will use her years of expertise to give the customer an estimate of how much the item is worth. If the customer wishes to sell, the jewellery will then be submitted to an International auction house enabling the client to receive the best possible price in the current market quickly.

When considering a piece of jewellery before an auction, Karen Lindley will use her expert eye to appraise the piece and give an idea of the net value of the item, although the customer should bear in mind that sometimes a piece of jewellery just won’t sell at auction and sometimes it will sell for far more than estimated. In all auctions, the seller has the option of putting a reserve price on the piece so clients don’t need to worry about selling an item for less than they wish. The turn-around between sending to auction and getting paid can be as little as 2-3 weeks. This depends entirely on the quality and commercial salability of the piece.

This new appraisal service is available to both old and new customers. All a client or perspective clients need do is to bring their piece into the store for an appraisal.

For an appraisal ahead of auction, Karen will look at the following factors:

The condition of the item
The authenticity of the piece
Its current market price
Any markings or anything unusual about the piece.

Diamonds by Design will try to make sure that the item sells. If not, Karen can often use her contacts in the industry and her own database to try and secure the sale of the item.

If this is a client’s first auction, then Diamonds by Design will talk them through the process so they know what to expect.

As with all services offered by Diamonds by Design, Karen Lindley will provide the usual customer orientated service and professionalism that clients of this long-established business have come to expect.

For any queries, contact Diamonds by Design by phone on (612) 92321611 or email at where our experienced staff will be happy to help.
