Diamond Loans

Reap the rewards of an eternally desirable commodity

There will always be a demand for diamonds. The most precious and rare of gemstones, diamonds have been traded since the fourth century BC, and have never fallen out of fashion. Today, diamond production has spread around the world, but De Beers, which owns several mines across Africa, remains the largest producer. Diamonds mark the most special milestones in our lives, and it can be difficult to sell an item of such emotional resonance. Fortunately, taking out a short-term loan against your diamond allows you to capitalise on its value without having to part with your prized possession.

What types of diamonds do you consider for a loan?

We accept mounted and unmounted diamonds, preferably with a certificate, however we can accept diamonds without certification. 

How do I get a loan against my diamond?

Simply fill out the form below, and we’ll be in touch to find out more about your diamond and arrange collection. We’ll appraise the item and make you a loan offer based on our professional valuation. Alternatively, you can call us on 020 7665 8307 or email contact@eldens.co.uk.

Appraising your diamond

To appraise your diamond and produce an accurate valuation, our experts will consider multiple factors:

  • ‘The 4 C’s’
    Diamonds are graded on colour, clarity, cut and carat weight, collectively termed ‘the 4 Cs’. When combined, these factors define a diamond’s quality and ultimately determine its value.

  • Certification
    We can appraise diamonds more accurately if they have an HRD, Gubelin or GIA report. The HRD Diamond Grading Lab and the Gubelin Gem Lab are highly regarded in the European marketplace, while the Gemological Institute of America, or GIA, is the diamond laboratory that holds the most influence in the industry.

Collection and storage of your diamond

Your diamond will be professionally handled at all times. It remains protected from the moment it’s collected by our in-house logistics team, until it’s safely and securely returned, following repayment of the loan. All diamonds are insured for fair market value by underwriters who are part of Lloyds of London.

Once your diamond has been appraised we create a condition report (for client reference and internal use only). It’s then professionally sealed and locked in our vault for the duration of the loan.
