I have metal allergies, so that is why I always go for plat, but I was really surprised at how reasonable it was. In 14k, I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.
It will probably come in around the same as the Unique setting. I don't know how you feel about the donut part, but for me, it is a little boxy. Initially it did not bother me, but now after having more time to look at it (ie, obsess over it) I would have the basket made a little sleeker. Just a something to consider if you get him to remake it.
