How Pricing Works

Every piece of jewelry from LaProng Jewelers is intended to be unique. For this reason, the cost of an engagement ring or any other piece of custom jewelry is always different. We understand that everyone has a budget. Whether it is a custom commissioned piece or a DIY Workshop, we are happy to work with budgets of any size. Understanding your budget is one of the first steps in the planning process. During a design consultation, we will discuss this and associated costs. After that, you will receive a written estimate outlining your exact cost.

DIY Engagement & Wedding Ring Workshop Pricing


Just like the jewelry we make, every DIY wedding jewelry workshop is a unique and completely custom experience. The exact cost of the jewelry you will make is based on your design and choice of materials. Typically in the Wedding Band Workshop, a couple will spend about the same on a set of custom-made 14K gold bands versus a set of mass-produced rings from a traditional jewelry store.

Engagement ring pricing will vary based on the type of stones used in your project. For this reason, it is important to understand your budget and know what level of spending you will be comfortable with. The average cost for a DIY diamond engagement ring is $5K but this number is not a minimum or maximum of what you should budget for. Plan for what works best for your situation and start shopping from there.

Below you will find a general price guide to give you an idea of what it will cost to make your own engagement or wedding rings, DIY style! The exact cost will be based on current gold market prices and your specific needs. A full breakdown of the cost will be provided upfront, in writing after your design consultation.
