Frequently Asked Questions
What is the cost of creating a custom design?
Madberet uses fair & transparent pricing for every custom design. Every option we explore will fall into your desired budget range. You will receive a full breakdown of the stones, setting, labor & services associated with your design. See our Pricing Guide.
Are custom designs more expensive?
Surprisingly, no! Jewelry pricing is based on materials, labor & craftsmanship experience. The cost of a custom engagement ring with Madberet will be comparable with companies which share similar high craftsmanship standards. We work hard to find stone options that are optimal for your budget & that exceed your expectations.
What diamonds and gemstones does Madberet use?
We source stone options & review them with you to find the perfect stone for your design, preferences & budget. We work most frequently with diamonds (lab and natural) and other precious gemstones (sapphires, rubies & emeralds). We also work with a range of semi-precious gemstones.
How does Madberet source diamonds & gemstones?
We partner with incredible diamond & precious gemstone traders in Chicago & New York. Once we have your design criteria, Madberet collaborates with experts to find the best & most beautiful options for your design. We select diamonds & gemstones that are ethically sourced & graded by reputable grading institutions. This ensures high quality & fair pricing.
