JC-quest "A Crowning Achievement" worth it?

Professions
I did the pre-quest to the abovementioned quest, A Colorful Key. Then I was thinking whether the Crowning quest really was worth it, considering the hefty price of the mats? The crown would be a welcome update to my Wikket Witch's Hat (910) but then again there are boss drops waiting along the road and an addon to come along.

tl;dr:
1) If I make the quest and then wanna make a crown for myself, do I have to spend the mats twice or am I to keep the crown I made for the quest?

2) Are the crown recipes still worth doing the quest?

Thanks!
Hey there Calix,

I cannot really answer question 2 as that is somewhat depending on what you hope to get out of it. If you just like to have professions with all (or as many as possible) recipes unlocked, then the quest is worth it of course. :)

As for making your own Crown, that would indeed have to be a new craft. To complete the quest, you are actually creating an Imperial Crown that is tagged as a quest item and so you don't get to keep it. Only after completing the quest do you get the real recipes for them.

With Battle For Azeroth on the horizon, you may be able to pick up the materials cheaper as time goes by though, so you can always keep an eye out on the Auction House.

Good luck with the Jewelcrafting business. :)
If you just want to make one for yourself, it might be less work to buy one made by someone else. However, the crowns have unique models so if you learn to produce them, there will be probably quite a few transmog hunters in the future that would want to buy it even when the expansion is over and the stats on the item stop playing a role.
Thank you both for your thoughts and input!
its not something ppl buy.. maybe they give nice obliterate?
