What Luriya’s customers are saying

If you search the website, they actually show you how to sell diamonds yourself. They are also partnered with GIA which is supposedly the world’s best appraiser. Not bad for a second generation company.

Selling diamonds can be a long process when you don’t know which establishment to turn to. I was lucky to find Luriya while surfing the web for places that pay cash for diamonds. They were very courteous and answered all my questions before I even went for the appraisal.
