In response to Kevin Dorgan [email@example.com] comment that we jack up the prices. We will sell Kevin Dorgan the ring in the case as is for the price on the tag. If Kevin wants us to make him a new ring in different size with a different top them we will supply him an estimate at the going rate. Platinum and gold prices change everyday and thats why we prepare an estimate for a special order. If he doesn't like the price he can shop elsewhere but be assured our prices are competive. We can't go back in time and buy gold or platinum at the old price. Assuming we can doesn't make any sense. I ask Kevin if he got a better price elsewhere?
