Where Can I Sell Loose Gemstones?

Although it can be difficult to sell loose gemstones if they are not set in jewelry, they are often easy to sell to local jewelers and on online auction houses such as eBay. Local jewelers frequently accept legitimate, non-commercial sources of loose gemstones at discounted prices.

It is important to double check the legality of selling gems on certain websites due to regulations in the sale of diamonds and other gemstones as a result of illicit international production of these gems. Penalties for the unlawful acquisition and sale of these gems can range from severe financial punishments to extended incarceration periods.
