General Pricing Guidelines

Andrew Nyce Designs is providing pricing guidelines for our unique Mokume Gane and Damascus Stainless Steel wedding, engagement, commitment and men’s rings.

Please contact Andrew Nyce Designs for a quote on a wedding, commitment, engagement, or men’s ring.

In general, the price of Mokume Gane and Damascus Stainless Steel rings is determined by the cost of the materials used, as well as, by the amount of time it takes to make the ring.

Materials pricing is dependent on several factors including type and amount of precious metal alloys used, ring size, overall ring width, as well as the inclusion of optional ring elements such as liners, edges, and channels. The inclusion of precious gemstones also will add to the cost of the ring.

Precious Metals Pricing

Andrew Nyce Designs offers ring elements in a variety of precious metal alloys. Channels will use more precious metal alloy compared to liners, which, in turn, will use more precious metals than edges or inlaid bands. Consequently, depending upon which precious metal alloys you select, the optional ring elements may significantly affect the final cost of your ring.

A comparative cost of the precious metal alloys offered by Andrew Nyce Designs is provided below:

precious-metal-cost
  • 950 Platinum (950 Pt)
  • 22K Yellow Gold (22K YG)
  • 18K Palladium White Gold (18K PW-Gold)
  • 18K Royal Yellow Gold (18K RY-Gold)
