    Women's Watch Appraisal

    I have inherited a women's Doxa watch with 14 Karat Gold and 30 diamonds. Is there a place to go (web site) that can help me decide if the jeweler's appraisal based on the gold weight and the diamond value, is reasonable? In other words, is the watch worth more than just its gold and diamonds?

    Hardly any watch with that much gold and diamonds would be worth more than the value of the bling - unless it's a Patek or Vacheron maybe. No website would be more reliable than a jeweler's estimate.

    Remember, you can rarely recover the current market price for gold by selling it to a jeweler. They need to tear it down, melt it, and probably re-refine it to get to the point where it is worth the current market price.

    Diamonds I know nothing about but I know selling wholesale and buying retail is always a substantial difference, especially in the bling business.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
