When Is the Best Time to Sell Diamonds?, Honolulu, Hawaii

Seasonality matters in the jewelry business. If you want to know when the best time to sell diamonds is, you should turn to your calendar. Unless tied to a milestone event such as weddings, birthdays or religious ceremonies, consumers tend to buy expensive jewelry around major holidays or periods of celebration. Minding these dates will help you secure the highest price for your items, as pawn shops will be looking to meet the demand. 

A Guide to Selling Diamonds 

Valentine’s Day

As the official holiday of romance, the run-up to Valentine’s Day is major in the diamond exchange. Most people will likely buy their pieces during January and early February, so it’s best to start early when looking for a buyer.

Mother’s Day

Observed annually on the second Sunday of May, loved ones often buy the women in their life a beautiful piece of jewelry for Mother’s Day. Try to sell your gems in March or April before the rush begins.

Graduation Season

Winter Holiday Season

With several holidays taking place in November and December, winter is one of the most in-demand seasons to sell diamonds. Get ahead of the crowds by selling your pieces around early November.
