So, I recently discovered a website where you can buy loose gems, for relatively cheap. I also have a very particular ring in mind, champagne sapphire with a rose gold setting. Now, ive found the gem. Anyone know of a good site to visit for nice settings that will accept one of my own gemstones?

@xSparr0w: If you have the dimensions of your ring.. You could check out myloveweddingring.com.. I had them make a custom setting for a ring (dimensions were off an appraisal paperwork) and they sent the setting that I then took to a local jeweler to have set.. but they were awesome with the custom design.
If not most stores will do it just call around your local area

I’d recommend finding a good local independent jeweler to work with. That way you get to be involved every step of the way so no nasty surprise in the mail if they get something wrong, and you’ll have a local person to go to who will do cleanings, minor repairs etc. (probably for free…mine does, even will replace any lost melee for free)

@joya_aspera: Yea I wouldn’t normally recommend an online retailer for something like a custom ring.. but I seriously have 54 emails between me and them back and forth with multiple alterations and pictures along the way.. they definitely listened to what I wanted and did not dissappoint
