Hey all! I'm looking for some micro pave solitaire inspiration. I LOVE the Michael B Paris engagement ring - like so many of us. I've reached out to a few designers - Mike Nekta, Davis Klass, etc. Have any of you worked with someone who did great micro pave work and they were reasonably priced? If so, can you share who you worked with, pics of the ring, and price? THANK YOU!!

Something under a down-payment on a house! I love the Michael B setting, but $9k is too high for me. I'm hoping to get it replicated for a bit less.

With just the diamonds on the shank the ring will cost $1750 in platinum (like my ring below), around the basket too $1950, and just around the basket $1250. Take $200 off the price for any color 18k gold. Could also be worthwhile to let him make a quote for 14K gold.
Please note that prices will fluctuate.

Mine was about half that.

Pretty sure my new ring is considered micropave'. I think it's exquisite!

Quote from OP: "I love the Michael B setting, but $9k is too high for me. I'm hoping to get it replicated for a bit less."

So in this instance, yes. VC is much more reasonably priced than the setting she was looking at.....

The OPs original post, referencing people like DK, asks for reasonably priced, not less than 9k.

I just think people here get a bit jaded to exactly how much some designers you suggest cost.

::)

Just a friendly reminder that everyone has different budgets

For me only, for the quality I want, to me Victor is generally speaking reasonably priced. And I was comparing him to Michael b.

If we are posting VC as reasonable... could folks post steven, leon as well... also - I think Matyl is a bit more reasonable as well as ERD

From the quotes I got for my halo 2.5 years ago, SK was about 1k more than ERD hand forged for similar designs. ERD CAD/cast was about half the price of ERD hand forged. I didn't contact Leon due to bad experiences some PSers had with him around that time and I wasn't aware of VC or DK yet at the time. I went with ERD hand forged but looking at their videos and photos, their CAD/cast rings look very similar in quality as the hand forged ones, so I would recommend ERD for both hand forged or CAD/cast. ERD CAD/cast is especially a great option if on a budget!
