Jewelry stores mark-up their engagement ring prices, well above the cost of the gold and diamonds. A reasonable price mark-up is to be expected, but most jewelry stores often mark-up their prices by 500%, with some increasing their prices by as much as 1,000% or more! Many people accept this mark-up because they believe they “have to spend three month’s salary” on an engagement ring. But that doesn’t need to be the case, at all.

Avoid retail prices with a custom-made engagement ring. At Paul Albarian & Associates, we can help you get a custom-made engagement ring at a fraction of the cost of what retail jewelers charge. We will help you choose a design, select the gem(s) and metals you want to use, and we have a jeweler who will create the ring especially for you.

A custom-made ring adds a personal touch. An engagement ring is one of the most significant and meaningful purchases you’ll make in your life. It signals your devotion and commitment to the love of your life. Wouldn’t you rather have a ring that you helped design, rather than something directly from a display case? The extra thought that goes into a custom-made ring makes it truly special, personal, and perhaps a family heirloom for the next generation.

Bring us a photo of the ring with which you’d like to propose. You don’t have to design the ring from scratch. Just find a photo of the ring you’d like, and bring the photo to us. You’ll buy the stone(s) and precious metal(s) directly from us, and we have an artisan to create the ring just as it looks in the photograph.

We sell diamonds, gold, platinum, and more! Did you know you can save thousands of dollars on an engagement ring by NOT going to a major jewelry store? At Paul Albarian & Associates, you can avoid the mark-ups jewelry stores place on their rings, and your ring will also be custom made! We have a selection of diamonds and other gems, as well as the precious metals you might want to include in your ring. We’ll make sure you have exactly what you’re looking for, and provide you a fair price on the gems, metals, and labor required to craft that very special ring.
