Hello !! :) (i’m new to the forum!!)

In my little jewelry collection, I have some broken gemstones. So I was wondering if they still have some value...

Do you think they have???
Thank you really much if you answer !! :D

Some value is possible, but certainly less than it once had.

In evaluating damaged gems you’d need to consider the stability and aesthetics. If the damage made the gem less visually appealing, that’s bad. If the damage made the gem more prone to further damage, that’s very very bad.

For tiny tiny small gems, the value of the gems to begin with might not be massive to begin with. It’s tough to judge from a distant picture.
