Olive you must share how much he ends up quoting you!
My guess was $500-ish because it its just a simple band with some engraving, and the $1475 price was WITH "designer" mark-up.
The ring he made me has 1.01 ctw G-H VS diamond melee and 6.6 grams of solid platinum and it was at just a little more than a third the price of the designer piece it was inspired by. I'm serious!
So, that's why I guessed around a third of the $1475 band...
The the non-designer pieces he's quoted for me he has consistently said he can do for about half or a little less than half the retail price.
So, that being said, I'd revise my guess to a range of somewhere around $500 t $737.50.
No biggie if I end up being off, but that's my guess!
I know other jewlers must hate his prices but we love them!
