Setting a custom ring costs anywhere from $500 to $1500. However, the cost varies depending on design complexities, type, size and number of the accent stones used, and absolutely anything a jeweler will factor into the budget. Let us break down how the cost of a custom ring setting is distributed.

Factors That Affect The Cost Of A Custom Ring Setting

Design Fee

On many occasions, a designer will request at least $500 to bring your ideas to life. Once the fee is paid, you will communicate with the designer either face to face or via video calls detailing how exactly you want your new ring to look like. The designer will then draw sketches and present them to you for further clarification or approval.

Some designers will go the extra mile of meticulously creating a lifesize 3D model ring using graphics. For this service, you might pay more bucks.

Labor Costs

After the designer has done his deeds and ensured that you are contented with the results, expert craftsmen move into action. Craftsmen’s labor fee ranges from $ 100 to $500, and their job is to carve out a unique ring from the chosen metal. They will also fit the stone to the shank. 

The Price Of The Base Metal 

Of course, when you go for a custom ring setting, the jeweler will want to work on a new metal. Most shanks are priced at $200 to $700, but the amount you pay will increase when you go for lavish and rare metals like platinum. 

What Will Your Custom Ring Setting Cost?

To get an expertly done ring that meets all your preset aspects, budget for at least $1500, and patience. The shank will take roughly 60% of the total cost, followed by $500 for design and a flexible amount ranging from $100 to $500 for labor.
