A lot of the jewelry shops will custom make you something if you can show them a design. We had a custom ring made in silver for my mother by giving the shop an old costume jewelry ring that she liked the design of. Took them about 3 days and we just paid the weight in silver.

Buy one on E-bay and have it shipped to Peru.
For $10-$15 including international shipping (yeah I sorted the results by Low Price+ shipping), does not worth the hassle in having it custom made unless you really want one made out of gold with fancy jewelry.

It's a few years back so I can't remember how much we spent, but it wouldn't have been more than 50 Soles for .975 silver - probably more like 30 Soles. The price of silver has more or less doubled in the last couple of years though.
