The reason we do not show prices is that our work is made on a “one-off” basis. This means we are able to create many different versions of any given design, all at different prices.
Obviously, our existing stock pieces all have prices, but normally we could make a version at perhaps half the price of the one in stock, and another version at twice the price of the stock item, and a hundred other versions between the two extremes!
We calculate the price for each piece based on the cost of materials and labour.
– We have to calculate the cost of metal and stones, and the amount of time needed to make it. This is the same whether it is a piece for our stock or a bespoke piece for a customer.
When undertaking a commission, we can work to the price-range of an individual client.
With an engagement ring, for example, we estimate how much of your overall budget will go into the metal and labour. Whatever is left is the sum available to buy the stone(s). – Once we know this figure we can calculate what size of stone you could have in a ring of that type.
We can make engagement rings from around £1,000, and wedding rings from around £200, (although many of our clients spend quite a bit more). We will always try to accommodate whatever budget you specify, (provided it is realistic). – Please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss possibilities.
With any design, we can scale weights and stone sizes up or down, according to what you want to spend. Obviously, the more you pay, the more you get.
When we are making a wedding ring to sit alongside an engagement ring we need to take measurements from the engagement ring. We can then tailor the dimensions of the wedding ring to complement it. These dimensions determine the weight of precious metal needed to make the wedding ring. If there are to be diamonds in the ring, we select the size and quality to work within the band and to suit the engagement ring. This makes for a huge amount of variability in price.
If you come and look at our stock rings, you will see how prices can vary with the weight of metal and the size of stones, in what might be otherwise ‘identical’ rings.
If we find that your ideas are not possible to produce for the price-range you have indicated, we will tell you at the outset. Then, if you wish, we will suggest some alternatives.
We are always happy to discuss your requirements, and offer advice and estimates without obligation.
If you would like a price for particular item, please contact us. It is much better to phone rather than e-mail, because we will want to ask you a few questions about your requirements. Once we have all the information we need, we will calculate a price for you.
