@Dleigh2886:  Hmmm. Get a quote from David Klass and Scubach. Schubach is typically more than Klass. Klass has always been the most reasonable for any custom piece quote myself or friends have gotten. His email address is dkinla1@aol.com. His work is beautiful and expertly executed.

That quote does seem high considering you only need melee diamonds and the custom work itself.

I think that sounds beyond reasonable for a custom band with a lot of diamonds in it. my simple platinum solitaire cost more than that.

@theshannondee:  +1 I agree, that seems very reasonable. That is a very intricate ring!

That is completely reasonable given the intricacy of the setting and taking in to account the amount of time it takes to set each of those melee stones by hand. 🙂 Gorgeous set!

@Dleigh2886:  That’s a LOT of ring! My custom band is 1/2 as fancy and cost more so i’d say you’ve got yourself a steal.

Sounds super reasonable to me!

Lol, yeah, providing the center stones has proven (in my experience) to not lessen the price too terribly much when it comes to a lot of pave work, that shtuff is killer on the wallet, but so pretty! 😀

their cost is probably all in the labor it will take to create it.

@Dleigh2886:  If this is a picture of the e-ring and wedding band isn’t it already made? Or are you referencing another ring as a remake? 

With it already being made somewhere you could always contact the original designer to see how much it would cost to have a replica made using your diamonds.
