For me, yes. For others, perhaps not. If it’s in your budget, then go ahead! I’m sure you can find other options that are much cheaper. No one is going to be all up in your ears looking at your earrings anyway.

It sounds like a lot to me.  Citrine is a ‘semi-precious’ stone, and scapolite is certainly not in the precious category either.  The ruby and sapphire in that do not look very large.  Gold is 1800 an oz now, but the material in earrings is not a lot.  Maybe they are charging a lot for labor?

Have you looked into sourcing them from India? Maybe via an Indian shop if you have one or online? Maybe you have an indian friend with relatives in India. Just something to think about since your inspiration is Indian wedding jewelry going to the source may get you the best value and you’ll have authenticity. Other than that, I can only say they sound expensive to me but I know gold prices are curently super high.

Yes, the high price tag is for the custom made label. They are very intricate and beautiful. If they were in my budget, I would not hesitate for $700. If they were $1700, I would think twice. But my decision would be based on a lot of things. Like the fact that I didn’t buy new shoes for my wedding or other accesories. I.e., it all balances out. I see people spend that much on a pair of shoes, so why not earrings where the focus is on your face? They will be in your family forever….but I’m a sentimental fool like that.

I am an avid etsy shopper… those earrings look like a type I commonly see on etsy… even though they are gold I think you could get them for like 80-90% less and handmade, honestly. Head over there. I think there’s a section to custom request. But also browse and find some sellers that have intricate works… trust me, $700 is nutso!

It does sound like a lot of money, however the cost of gold just keeps going up and up.

You can also end up paying a lot for design depending who the designer is, so it’s not just the cost of the stones.

Imo, yes. I’ve seen similar earrings at places like Target–not real gold, but the look is very, very similar. You could make them yourself for a fraction of the cost.

Honestly for me I would never pay that for those earings. I feel like you can find something simalar for a lot less.




Not all exactly the same but still simalar for a lot less than those would take to make hope this helps.
