    Help with value. Women's Blancpain and Elgin

    These 2 women's watches were passed down in the family. Wanting to sell or trade and wanting to get an idea on value.

    Blancpain is 14k gold with 16 diamonds.

    One of the rules on this forum, is we do not give valuations.
    Best way is an advanced world wide search with completed listing on ebay.

    What I can say, although nice pieces, these small Ladies pieces tend to get very little - basicaly their weight in gold.
    In most cases the diamonds are so small to not add much value.
    That said unlike the Elgin, the Blancpain - looks nice diamonds
    I really suggest an good jewelers comments on the stones
    Because the value is the gold and stones

    Regards

    They tend to be clueless.

    So basically, the only value they have is the gold and little added for the diamonds. Appreciate the input.

    In case of Blancpain, you can as well count something in for the brand. A ladies' gold and diamonds Blancpain should sell for more than the Elgin made of the very same materials.

    Obviously, they do me no good and I'd like to put $ towards something or put these towards a trade. They work but need a little tune up

    Most jewellers will give you something for them, for the gold!
