Full Answer

To determine the value of a specific gemstone, consider having it appraised by a jeweler. They often charge a fee to appraise the piece. In general, transparent gemstones are typically worth more than opaque ones, and strongly colored gemstones are worth more than dull-colored stones. Pieces that were made or signed by famous makers, or those with a distinct style from certain historical periods, are typically worth more.
