I can’t speak for the USA, but, I’m having a platinum and diamond band custom made to fit around my engagement ring, and am paying £850/$1250. A similar ring would have set me back around £1000-1200 ($1500-1800) on the high-street, so, I’m actually saving by going the custom route. However, high-street jewellers in the UK are notoriously over-priced, so, as I said I’m not sure how it works in the States.

@littlemisshostess:  Maybe you need to shop around because you can buy it cheaper than that. Also, check with different jewelers. For some reason, some will only buy the old ring for you but will not actually reuse it, which does not save you as much.

Mine was bought in NY for $540. It’s a half eternity, vintage look. I told the jeweler my budget and he advised me while making exactly what i wanted! i say shop around and bring ideas and tell them the budget up front!!

it’s 14K, size 5.5 .. 1 and 2pt stones. (tiny diamonds)

@littlemisshostess:  I found the custom route was cheaper. Usually you get better quality and since you are not paying for name you get more bang for your money.

@littlemisshostess:  I had my ering custom made. You need to know what you want, design, metal, stone, etc. Contact as many jewelry stores that would accomodate you. I would suggest to also go to their stores. With me, I had to look for a jewelry store that had in store credit, did custom jewelry that you provide your stones. Not a lot of jewelry stores allow you to bring your own stone. I think they just want to make more money really. And when that happens, try to go to the store if you are able to. With my situation, my fiance and I have very different schedules. I work regular business house, but very busy, and he does swing shifts and also works on weekends. So I had to find someone that was willing to work with me with me not having to go to the store as often as needed. I only had to go to the store 2x and it had to be 2x because I wasn’t sure as to what center stone cut I wanted. If I had my stone ready already, it would’ve only been once until I will get my ring. Which I am waiting for right now.
