You pay the half of the estimate before work starts as a deposit and half of the estimate after completion and before pick up. For a sample contract please visit the contract page.
Q: What happens after I give you money for a custom jewel?
A: Work on the jewel commences with me traveling to Italy and starting work on the jewel. I spend the time necessary to complete the jewel overlooking every aspect of production.

A: Because the design is still a drawing. The estimate will most often be the final price.
