Yes, a diamond that has been certified by a lab other than the Gemological Institute of America can absolutely be resold in the market. A diamond is a diamond, and the value of a diamond will never decrease.
A number of customers have reported that they have been told by jewelry stores and online vendors that they should only purchase GIA diamonds because this is the only lab that can be trusted. It is explained to them that if they purchase a diamond that does not have the proper certificate, they will not be able to resell the diamond.
It's unfortunate that this is not accurate. The purchase price of an uncut GIA diamond is higher up front, but the resale value is higher as well, so it is a wise investment. With a DGC diamond, you will pay less up front, and the resale value will be lower as well when you sell it. The concept of value is similar to that of resale value in that it is a relative concept.
Maintaining perspective is important because a diamond is a consumer product. Regardless of which lab certification your diamond possesses, you will not be able to resell it for the same price that you paid for it when you first acquired it. Whether a diamond has a GIA certification or not, diamonds lose some of their value when compared to the price at which they were originally bought.
As a first and foremost consideration, your jeweler should be able to ascertain your requirements. Are you certain that you want to purchase a GIA certified diamond? As an alternative, are you looking for a diamond that is both stunning and reasonably priced? It is recommended that you consider working with an artisan jeweler who will spend the time necessary to understand your priorities and then collaborate with you to find a diamond that matches those priorities.
