Hi ladies! I really wanted some opinions on if I am being over charged for my wedding band or if the price sounds about right? I am using the same jeweler that did my custom engagement ring and I have all of the diamonds the only thing I need him to provide are the Mele diamonds, 14k gold and of course his time.. He quoted me $1575.. Please tell me what you think!! 🙂
Oh and there are still a few small changes to be made so this isn’t a final draft ..

@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 [email protected]. 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.

Thanks for all the replies! I don’t know why but I really thought since I had all the main diamonds it would be cheaper! I do feel better about his quote now 🙂 I’m just so tired off all these expenses adding up lol

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.

@treejewel19 the other ring in the pic is my engagement ring that he already custom made for us 🙂 he just included it in the rendering. The band he just finished designing after I explained what I wanted,so the price was just for the band (I already have the cushion and princess diamonds from bluenile to be used in the band) so all he’s doing is the labor mele diamonds and gold.. Hope that makes sense lol
