When I was around 10, my great grandmother gave me her old watch. She told me it was very expensive and asked that I only wear it on special occasions. Now I'm 33 and still have it. I'm wondering if it really is expensive or if that was just something she said so I would take care of it. On the face of the watch, the top says Buren and the bottom says 17 jewels, however, there are no jewels on the watch. It has two decorative things on either side of the face which connect to the bracelet part of the watch. the back of the face says base metal bezel st steel back. the part that goes around the wrist is the stretchy kind of bracelet, each part has speidel with some patent numbers I can't read very well. I will send a picture if needed. Can you give me a ball park value of this watch?

Hello, I recently purchased a trilogy princess cut diamond ring for my fiance but she noticed that one of the side stones is noticeably smaller than the other. The jeweler said there was no problem with the ring. He said that with a trilogy ring the main considerations are: The cut of the stone, the width (which he stated were equal on each side) and the measurement from the centre of the stone to the side. He said the depth of the stone will vary. Should the depth of the side stones on this type of ring be similar so one stone does not seem larger than the other? Kind regards and thanks in advance!
