Is custom-made jewelry more expensive?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

Custom jewelry can be cheaper or more expensive than jewelry you might buy at a retailer. It ultimately depends on the stones, gems and other materials and details you desire. 

If you’re not sure if creating a custom piece of jewelry is cost-effective, get price quotes from several custom jewelry designers. Compare their cost estimates with the price tags for other jewelry you’re considering buying. If you have your heart set on a custom piece that's outside of your price range, chat with the designer about more  affordable options that fit your budget.
