@rodeoidahochic:  When you go custom, the sky is the limit! It’s just finding a good jeweler to be on the same page as you 🙂

@rodeoidahochic:  Of course, why not? The band may be a little wider due to the detailing though. But I’m not a jeweler so don’t quote me!

The level of customization is only limited by the physical limitations of the materials involved and the talent of the jeweler. I would make absolutely sure that the jeweler you choose is experienced in intricate and involved settings like you are proposing, as not just any old bench jeweler can do this. Make sure you see examples of their work and are clear about the procedure if you are not satisfied with their work.

Custom is the answer.

A good Goldsmith can create miracles.  You just have to be very very detailed in what you give them to work with (Photographs is best)

Sometimes custom work isn’t priced too differently from regular over-the-counter stuff… BUT if you have the budget to spend more, of course they also have access to usually a lot better quality loose diamonds.

If you go custom, you’ll want to look on-line (or even here on WBee) for recommendations in your area.

Hope this helps,

@rodeoidahochic:  I agree with what everyone says, but do be careful when trying to replicate tacori. Their casts are incredibly detailed and I’ve seen some really terrible looking knockoffs. I would spend a lot of time researching before settling on someone- tacori is intricate and delicate!
