I have rings already made and for sale on Etsy. However customers
have the option to choose their ring size and their ring becomes a
"made to order" item (not custom). My dilemma is whether to increase
my price for rings that are made for sizes considerably larger than
the ring illustrated. I did a test from 5.5 to 8.75 which increased
the weight of metal by 0.6 ozt. Now, if I were to make that ring
without Etsy stuff in mind, I would charge for the weight of
materials used without a doubt. But my Etsy listings quote one
price, albeit for the size illustrated.
Should I offer size options with price increases, depending on the
size they choose? Obviously there won’t be much difference when
making a ring half a size larger, but 3 sizes certainly requires
more material. So perhaps I should start at 2 sizes above
illustrated ring. I have tried to see what others on Etsy do, but no
one seems to increase their prices to accommodate larger ring sizes.
