Here are a few simple steps to buy diamond rings on eBay.
Find out what your size is.
Diamonds can vary from size 0 to 2mm in size, so it’s best to take your size into account.
Pick a colour.
Look for the red colour you usually see on the back of your ring.
Look on eBay for a ring with a red, yellow or green colour on it. 3.
Make sure you’re not selling diamonds that are fake.
There are plenty of sellers on eBay who will sell you fake diamonds, so be careful not to sell a fake diamond.
Ask to see the seller’s photo.
If the seller is from the USA or Canada, ask them what country they’re selling from.
If you see the buyer’s name on the ring, look for the letter ‘O’.
Choose the ring you want.
The ring should be a size that matches the ring size you have.
If it’s too big, you can usually size down.
Get the price.
You should probably pay between £150 and £200 for a diamond ring.
The cheapest rings usually sell for around £10 to £20.
Make a note of the ring’s date.
You can ask the seller to give you a date to prove the ring is genuine, so you can check if it is. 8.
Check the price again.
Make your own check if you want to make sure the ring has been authentic.
If your ring is too big for you, it’s likely to have been made before.
Buy the ring.
If an eBay seller can’t give you the right size, they’ll probably sell it at a cheaper price.
Check for quality.
Buyers who are serious about selling their ring will try to find quality diamonds.
Check on the quality of the diamonds in the ring and on the bracelet.
