I noticed a little bit of DK pricing on another thread. I was hoping to get a quote from DK on this solitaire for my pear...was hoping
for $750-$1000 for white/yellow gold. Anyone with DK experience think it might be possible? Or, is it going to be $1000+?

I know I just need to call him but I just got a quote from him on my OEC so didnt want to bug him so soon. The OEC setting was
more elaborate with diamonds so I cant use it to make a guesstimate for a solitaire.

I got a quote for a simple setting from DK and it was more than 1000 bucks.

I think you just don't know until you ask.

Gypsy, was yours platinum maybe? The one I know of was well under $1000 but in gold, not platinum.

Tyty...come back and give us an idea of your quote if you don't mind.

Can't quite see how elaborate the design is but I did inquire about a custom solitaire setting and in gold it was around $800 and a little over $1k in platinum.

I agree that if in gold, it probably won't exceed $1000 but if platinum it probably will. At least that has been my experience with him.

Thank you guys for your input. It gives me some hope that it is in my
Price range.

When I get the quote I'll give you a ball park.

That's very surprising as in the last year ive gotten 2 quotes from him for solis and they where between 400-650

Sent DK a request last night at about 8 pm. Wasnt expecting to hear from him until maybe after the holidays but I got
an email back from him right away. Looks like 14k is just under $1k and 18k is just over $1k. I had asked for satin finish
and either milgrain/engraving (or both) on a wider basket bar.

I think the price is fair and I'm going to go for it! I'm very excited except...this is the first ring I'll be doing that I feel like
I dont know exactly what I want or how it might turn out (I know CADS will help a lot). I'll be asking for your help (the collective you)
to get some ideas and try to figure out what I want for metal, etc. I know DK will also have lots of information/advice and I'm excited
to work with him.

Please see my metal post if you have info on different colors of metal...might take me a minute to get it posted.
