Hi lovely.  Depending on your region it may be 1300 for everything.  Have you considered going to a family owned or small jewelry shop that’s local to You? Sometimes if you have it made custom it can be less expensive. You can also see the CAD images before you ok the ring. And you can get exactly what you want because you designed it! How special to have a one of a kind piece! Look on yelp and Instagram for local shops that have similar rings to what you like. Then email and talk to them! Get quotes. 

 I would be leary of anyone wanting all the money up front before the final product is on your finger. A deposit may be required. 

Good luck!

Hmm I agree. Depending on your region it might be a good price. However in mine I would think too much for gold. I would expect to be paying closer to  900 to 1000 for gold with only a few stones. We had my centre stone already so we only paid 1900 for a platinum setting with probably 3/4ths of a carat or so in diamonds and alot of teeny prongs. They really gave us an awesome deal and because of it I pretty much only go to that jeweller when I want something done because it will be done well and for a decent price. If I were you I would hold onto that quote and check around to see if anyone can do better. Don’t be afraid to test their knowledge either to make sure their prices are fair and not just low because they do crap work. I reccomend checking out reviews of wherever you get a quote too. Hopefully you can find a beautiful ring soon!

That’s probably 3-4x what I’d pay, I have my project rings custom made and $1,300 just for a .15ct semi mount seems very high – but like the others that might be the norm for where you live.  I’d just shop around if you’d like to pay less, or contact an Etsy jeweler to have them make it for you (that’s how I save $$)

mama2.0 :  Hi, I stumblled upon this thread and I was wondering if you could recommend some etsy sellers that do quality custom work? I’m looking to have a custom wedding band made and I’m a little overwhelmed with how many custom jewelers there are out there.  Have you had any success with any in particular?
