Our invoices are done in such a way as to be as transparent as possible on our pricing. This allows you to get a feel for how much projects will cost before you have even begun to create them. As we are primarily a production company all of our unit prices are geared towards wholesale jewelry orders. First prototypes created of a style will also enjoy our regular wholesale prices with no surcharges added outside of development fees for creation of masters, molds, and designs. As such we do not have pricing discounts for orders of higher quantities of a product.

Pricing for precious metals used in your jewelry is inclusive of all wastage. This means that you only pay for the actual raw material inside your piece of jewelry. Many companies will quote a price per gram for a material, but then add wastage figures on to that as well as other surcharges, so you may receive 3 grams of gold, but in actuality pay for 5 grams.
When submitting jewelry designs inside your user account, you will see pricing breakdowns of all materials used in your jewelry product. Gold and silver is priced out per gram, and gemstones are generally priced out per piece. For advanced users, our web portal allows you to select your own estimates of material usage when submitting a new jewelry design for quotation. This allows you to receive instant ballpark estimates for custom wholesale jewelry creations, and further allows you to tailor your product to a specific target budget prior to submission for review.
Please note that precious metal prices and currencies fluctuate daily, so it is important to check in on prices regularly. Further we will only lock in metal prices once an invoice has been paid, so reserve the right to cancel invoices that have been issued prior to payment in the event that there are major fluctuations in the commodities markets.
