    Yes...I have posted this before. I have not worn it in a while and it felt like new when I strapped it on this morning.

    Thanks DL...That really helps.. makes me breathe easier, lol..its about spotting diamonds in the rough.. I have a jeweler near where I live that refurbishes older vintage watches so I'm hoping he will be able to make it look better..

    Apart from those you mentioned, cut matters as well. eg brilliant or some rare cuts.

    Rare colours such as natural pink from the Argyle mine will push the price up further.

    Yes, cut is extremely important however, in my example I left it out as its much easier to see the difference in quality and price comparing 2 similarly cut stones but with variations in color and clarity.

    Yes natural pink, blue, and red diamonds significantly increase the price, but those are very few and far between.
