I'm looking to have Tiffany- inspired earrings made for my birthday and I really need your advise :razz:

Its 0.25 pear shaped diamond attached to a 0.08 round diamond (here's a link, sorry I wasnt able to copy the picture)

http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?fromGrid=1&sku=16517712&mcat=148210&cid=287464&search_params=s+5-p+5-c+287464-r+101323351+101424823-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+-k+

I contacted one of the vendors and was quoted $3200, with them using F-G VS uncertified diamonds. This price seems awfully high to me considering the size of diamonds being used for the earrings and the fact that they are not even certified :o

Do you think that the price is justified? Or do you have any suggestions for vendors I can contact?

Thank you!

That does seem really high.. though with the costs of metals and melee these days I'm not entirely sure!

I would actually go straight to Etsy for a piece like that - try http://www.etsy.com/shop/danielmjewelry and http://www.etsy.com/shop/JanishJewels - you can do searches on here to see examples of the work they've done for PSers. Materials will likely be around the same - maybe a bit less if you were quoted for H&A melee or the like - but you should save quite a bit on labour, if that quote was from one of the regular PS vendor go-tos.

I totally agree! I contacted two ps vendors and then danielm on etsy regarding a project I now gave un the works and the price quote was 300 less with danielm...

Don't get me wrong the PS vendors are exceptional with their custom projects but they will be bait higher than someone on etsy
