I think that sounds about right for a custom job. I wish you had pics to share, it sounds pretty!

I am not a jeweler, but I think Tungsten isn’t great for setting stones, so that might be why. I think that’s a good price. It’s hard to find a setting (if you were going to a jewelry store for a setting for a diamond) for less than 1400, even if there’s no diamonds in the setting, so I think with the white sapphires, that is average. If you love it, it is a good price 🙂

A 5mm band of 18K gold is probably pretty costly in and of itself. My custom setting (with diamonds) cost $750, but it is only 14K gold, and the band is very thin. If there is a lot of gold in the setting, you may save quite a bit of money opting for 14K gold. 

I’m guessing they don’t want to work with tungsten because it’s difficult to work with. Tungsten rings aren’t even able to be sized at the jeweler, so I’d imagine a whole custom setting is difficult and/or impossible without the right equiptment.

that’s a very reasonable price.
