    I've got a 1/8 carat VVS1 diamond and was wondering the approximate market value of it.

    Depending on COLOR, anywhere from 90 to about 225. Wholesale. Markup at retail generally 200-300%.

    Gunspeak translation- about from a J-22 to a Ruger Mk 1.

    It's a VVS1I/VVSI so I is the color. I don't remember how diamonds are graded and the certificate that came with it is a little faded. There really is no discernible color other than the diamond's natural refraction.

    It's in an earring and I let my ear heal up when I went into the army years ago.

    At least you still have the diamond. I got my ear pierced long ago right before HS graduation. By the time I was 21, I lost more diamond earrings than I care to remember. I stopped wearing an earring by 22.

    Sorry I can't help, I'm just impressed that you still have the diamond.
