I’m hoping for some help. I did a very mediocre show this weekend
that may be redeemed by an order I got for wedding rings. The couple
want two completely different rings, in a relatively short time (just
over a month). The man, after looking high and low, fell in love with
a design of mine, and wants the same, except very different…
Anyway, here’s the problem. I can make the two rings, and I can
figure out the materials costs, but I have no idea how long they will
take me, as I have never done these exact kinds of rings before. I
would like to charge based on how long it should take, since it
will be a good challenge for me. I must give a price before we can
get rolling. Can one of you goldsmiths out there who do custom
wedding rings all the time tell me how long the rings should take,
and/or what they should cost, if I describe them? I’m imagining this
taking place off-forum.
Thanks in advance–please let me know if you’re willing and able!
