There is a metal & labor charge on all castings. All metal prices are market-based on the day after your order is received. For gold, the metal premium is based on the 2nd London fix, plus $3.50. For platinum, the premium is based on the Johnson Matthey price.

There are no minimum orders at Carrera. You must order at least one!

If you send us a file for an average sized piece before 2pm, we will have a resin ready for casting by the next day. Larger pieces, such as large pins or bracelets, may require an extra one to two days. For design projects, you will be given a time frame when we take the project on.

 

Typically it's around $250-$400 to get you production ready. Prices vary depending on size and complexity of the jewelry. 

We can design a piece of jewelry from most drawings. We can create a CAD file from a sketch with your design details. The more details you provide, the faster and more complete we will be in our CAD model.

If you need us to scale your model we can do that for you. If your file requires a small repair we can usually repair it with no problem. If your file requires "major surgery" we will contact you before proceeding.
