Why is diamond resale value so low?

The reason resale prices for diamonds are so low compared with retail prices is that jewelers buy diamonds in bulk, at wholesale prices, which are much lower. There is no reason for a jeweler to pay the same price for your diamond when such a stone can be bought for much less from a diamond dealer.
