by pauleroni » May 8, 2010 I have looked at many, many local jewelers for the "perfect" ring, but have not found it. I have it envisioned the perfect ring, and have accurately drawn it in sketches, and taken photos of the closest rings I have found. I need the jeweler to design the ring and supply the sidestones. There are 2 local jewelers in town, 1 quoting $1250 total, 1 quoting $1850 (talked down from $2150) total. The $1250 will be hand carved from a block of wax, and the $1850 would be designed in CAD. I won''t be in town to see in-person, so it would be e-mailed photos or e-mailed CAD images/renders. Both jewelers say they can do the ring exactly how I have drawn (top and side view skethces supplied as well). $600 is a lot of money, but the CAD jeweler states they can get the precision much better than hand-made! I''m lost, what do you think is best?
