Diamond value ?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I got in hold of watches from 2009 and there are 20 small diamonds in them.  

I would like to know if they have some price or they are worthless. I will be glad for any help.

I have this information about them 

crystal : Flat Sapphire

diamond shape : round briliant

diamond (dial) : Ø 1,00-1,10mm / E-F / VVS

Worthless to whom?  Normally this sort of thing is difficult to sell and taking watches apart is decidedly difficult.  In that sense they’re worthless.  On the other hand, if you or someone else wants a 10 year old diamond watch, there’s nothing wrong with that and yes, that’s value.

No worries. Depending on the details of the watches, you may or may not be able to sell them. It's going to depend on the collectability of the watches and your own skills as selling things.   Taking the diamonds out and selling them on their own merits is unlikely.

To restate what Neil just said:

  • The diamonds by themselves you won't be able to resell (with 99.99% certainty).
  • The diamonds within the watch face, you may be able to, but a fair value/price depends on what the watch is, not the diamonds per se.
  • If the brand of the watch is not a well known one, the value is likely to be zero or very near unless it is made of gold or platinum (in which case it's worth the value of scrap for the metal, but again you will get no extra because of the diamonds).

(BTW - the crystal, even though it may be real sapphire, is synthetic and again has no resale value, unless the watch it belongs to is rare and desirable)
