This report is the first of its kind to rank the diamonds and jewelry Americans own and provides insights on value, quality and style by state.

This state-by-state comparison provides consumers with unique insights on both current statistics and trends over time in terms of quality, size and shape.

Who knew that in terms of the best quality diamonds, Colorado or Kansas would make the top ten? Or that New Mexico or South Dakota would feature in the top ten states with the most expensive secondhand jewelry? These stats and more can be verified and compared in America’s Diamond and Jewelry Ranking Report.

Benjamin Burne, CEO of WP Diamonds, says, “To date, there hasn’t been a proper study of America’s diamond and jewelry consumption and how it varies by state. It is fascinating to compare and contrast our neighbors and get a detailed look of what kinds of diamonds and jewelry they own. Whether you are a jewelry enthusiast, or in the market for an engagement ring, the trends that dominate one part of the country often don’t translate to other regions.”

America’s Diamond and Jewelry Ranking Report was developed based on a statistical culmination of a survey of WP Diamonds’ 15,000 latest customer inquiries at their international headquarters. WP Diamonds, specializes in the buying back of these luxury items from the general public. With certified gemologists and appraisers on staff and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), WP Diamonds presents competitive offers for secondhand pieces.

Michael Lebowitz, Director of Jewelry at WP Diamonds, says, “The report also provides an insight into how much disposable income is spent on diamonds and jewelry and in which states people gift most generously. The results surprised us, as they will you.”
