Sorry to hear that you lost something of sentimental value, I know that must be tough.

As for the cost it should not be that much.  Probably around $800 max.  I guess it would depend on the pearl size and type.  Freshwater and akoya seem to be around the color you may be looking for.

I’m so sorry you lost the pearl!

I can’t really answer your question, but I can share my experience. I was looking for a specific style of earrings but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted so I got them custom made. My custom ones ended up costing about 35% more than my inspiration pieces from places like Zales, using the same materials and stones as my inspiration pieces (but the quality was so much better). They were willing to do anything to suit my desires and budget. I loved the process, as now I truly have something unique!

So I suggest you look at pieces similar to what you want online (pearl ring with the same metal), and a custom piece will probably cost a bit more, but also not like 10x more. Then get a quote. My jeweler made a few sketch and offered a few quotes for free. Also, look for reviews (I just read the horror story of a Bee and her poorly-done custom rings!)
