im trying to buy or design a setting for my engagment ring and have ran across leon mege beautiful designs from this website. i love
love his stuff as many other gals on this forum im sure. i showed this picture of dmarielevin ring https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-leon-mege-cushion-is-finally-here.55393/ to my local jewerly store and they have came back and given me a quote of $6975 for platinum and $6100 for white gold to make it!! i know thats probably close to what leon charges but this is just a local store in columbus, ohio?! does anyone have any recommendations on where i can purchase a setting like this and for much cheaper? is that really ballpark how much leon charges? please any ideas would be greatly appreciated. also if anyone knows how to attach dmarielevin e-ring pic please do so.

the price quote you got is higher than anything I've ever had quoted by Leon. If you love that Leon setting, definitely email or call Leon for a quote and I'd definitely have him make it.

Like mrssalvo said, contact Leon for a price quote. If you want that ring, I wouldn''t just go with anyone. You will end up disappointed.

Wow, that price is way too high for a setting...is it for the e-ring only or is it with a matching wedding band? The price that was quoted is almost the price of a diamond!!

If you want the exact ring, I would go with Leon. If you just want something similar with pave, check out Whiteflash. They did my ring which is pave and milgrain. Here is a picture. I am very pleased with it.

Leon normally quotes 4-6 weeks for one of his settings. Best to call him to be sure...

Hi Cushcut,

Thanks for the nice thoughts on my ring! Leon did an amazing job on it and I am so happy. That quote your jeweler gave you is really high. Leon quoted my engagement ring price at $3800 plus the cost of diamonds. I think the total price wound up to be $4500 - $4600 (that''s with platinum). I went to NYC to meet with him, however, if you know what you want, I don''t think working with him long distance would be a problem at all. The good thing about Leon is that you know you will get a really well made piece and his prices for this sort of thing are really competitive with other jewelers. I met with Leon and dropped off my stone on 10-20-06. He quoted me 4-5 weeks but said don''t be surprised if it took longer. I think he finished it around the third week in December and from what I hear this is sort of on the longer end for him.

Best of luck,

Denise

Glad to see you are going to contact Leon. I was pleasantly surprised when I had a price quote from him. What more could you ask for, a competitive price with masterful results!

Good Luck!!!
