This question is for bees who have experience working with local jewelers.
First, I understand that every jeweler is different. I just want to get a ballpark-idea. How much do you think it would cost to get a custom-made Tiffany-replica setting made at a local jeweler? A 6-prong round solitaire (made for a 1 ct. stone) in platinum? I’m wondering the cost for the setting alone, NOT the stone.
Again, I realize that every jeweler will vary, but what’s your ballpark guess?
Here is a picture for reference:

We had my ring custom made and the jeweler said it was relatively cheap to do unless it is hand forged..it isn’t like getting a custom dress made. My guess would be around $500-$1K because of the platinum.

I voted u$1000-1500 since you said platinum. Although the setting is quite simple, platinum is more expensive than white gold. Platinum costs about u$30 per gram as of today.

My ring cost $700 Canadian without the centre stone. I would say probably $1000-1500 just because it’s in platinum which is more expensive than gold. It really shouldn’t be much more than a pre-made plat setting costs. It’s really going to depend on how thick you want the band and how much platinum is used.
