True or False? Custom jewelry is always more expensive than the options already in the store?
How, you are thinking. Well, a few different factors come into play.
FINE JEWELRY MARKUPS
First, the supply chain. When jewelry is produced in large quantities, those pieces are typically sent out to stores who place a significant markup. The more hands the jewelry passes through, the larger the markup typically is by the time it reaches your eyes.

COMPLEXITY AND QUALITY OF CUSTOM JEWELRY

- complexity of the design

- quality of the gemstone
