Costs & Timing
How much does it cost?
On average, most full custom rings fall in a price range between $1500 and $3500. Our pieces are all created with substantial, high quality precious metal settings containing stones comparable to a D color, flawless diamond.
When pricing your custom creation, there are three factors we consider: design fee, cost of materials, and labor costs.
Unlike most custom jewelry studios, we do not charge you for your initial consultation with our designers. If you choose to receive an optional Computer Aided Design (C.A.D) image rendering, you can expect to pay $150. A C.A.D enables you to see the exact design prior to it being cast .Most of our customers do choose this option. We should note here that we do offer a rush CAD service for $250. We also offer the ultimate CAD service which includes up to 10 changes for $400. Most customers do not require this many changes.
Cost of Materials
Stones - With the exception of our Pure Carbon synthetics, all Diamond Nexus simulants and lab-created rubies, emeralds, and sapphires are priced at a standard $99 per carat for Classic Series and $149 per carat for Certified Signature Series.
Metal - The cost of precious metals varies from day to day with the global market. The amount of metal required for your design and the type of metal you select for your piece will determine its cost.
Cost of Labor
Our experienced, accomplished jewelers will always devote as much attention to your jewelry as each piece demands. The more complicated your design is, the more intensive the craftsmanship will need to be. Pieces with lots of delicate scrollwork or filigree embellishments will naturally be more time consuming for a jeweler to create than a smooth, simple setting. Likewise, pieces with lots of tiny stones to set are more labor intensive than a piece with just a few large stones, and will therefore cost more.
How long does it take?
Your jewelry piece will be an extraordinarily crafted, one-of-a-kind piece of art, and the intricate work involved takes time. We want every detail of your jewelry precisely as you want it, thus we encourage you to spend as much time consulting with our artisans and designers as you need to get it right. Once production on your jewelry piece begins, it will take two to four weeks to complete and then will be shipped to you based upon the shipping method you request.
Is there a guarantee?
We are certain your solid involvement throughout the process will leave you delighted when you see your final piece. Nonetheless, we stand behind our work 100%. If you are not completely thrilled with the final product for any reason, most custom creations are covered by our 30 day return policy with nothing but a 20% design fee and the original CAD fee (when applicable), or 100% Nexus Design Studio credit.
