So How Does it Work Exactly?


Everything starts right here on our site. It takes just a few minutes to complete the diamond application form and once finished you’ll hear from your personal Auction Liaison right away. Then we’ll send a free (and fully insured) FedEx shipping label straight to your email inbox.


Shipping your diamond is a cinch! Just use whatever shipping material you’ve already got at home then bring your package to any FedEx® shipping location or simply schedule a free pick-up.

  1. Place diamond inside plastic bag
  2. Place bagged diamond inside two sealed envelopes
  3. Affix free overnight shipping label and wrap with tape
  4. Drop off at FedEx or schedule pickup


Once your diamond has shipped you can track its progress using our state-of-the-art Diamond Tracker software. You’ll login to this system throughout the auction process to check your diamond’s current status.

You can view images and video of your diamond, see a complete list of its details, and track bids in real-time. During the auction, you’ll be shown how many bids your diamond currently has, your diamond’s highest bid, and the geographical location of each bidder. The Diamond Tracker is also where you’ll accept or reject your diamond’s highest offer.
