Amcor is in NYC. Give David another shout. He was very responsive for the three rings he made for me. He just got back In town. Put something catchy in the subject line lol.

OP…  I hate to answer in a vague way but I’m from the San Francisco area.  And many many women get custom rings made which look very much like the Verragio style you wish to have.  Most of the jewelry designers that seem to do this type of style are located in the LA, Orange county area.  This is a style which a lot of the women prefer located in that particular area of California.  Its kinda like if you have some money to throw around people wonder why you don’t have that type of style of ring n the LA area.  So, I would start my search there.  Also, if you search for custom halo pieces I feel you will get a lot of information on wedding bee for custom design.  

As far as the price…  I find most custom jewelers are way overpriced for ‘intricate’ designs.  But, as with all custom designs you have to get quotes.  All quotes will be very different.  And about using the place in China.  I don’t blame you for being hesitant about dealing with overseas custome design.  I would want something in the states myself.  

I did get my simple solitare custom designed by a man who took over his father jewelry design business in the Silcon Valley.  If you wish I will send you his contact information in a PM.  I have no idea what he would charge for what you want.  He does have CAD available.  Speaking from experience if dealing with someone long distance be ready to spend money on sending the ring back if you need to for modifications.  Thinking a custom design will come out right the first tine based on a CAD in my life is not realistic.  I’ve heard other women say the same.

Lastly, if David is who you want keep bugging him girlfriend.  Its your er!  Get what you want!

I had problems with DK answering emails too. Hate to say it, but why would you want to work with someone who is not responsive? His stuff is great, that is a given, but customer service is not just about the end result, is it.

Schubachs (Joseph Schubachs) would be who I would go to for custom work.
