We were told that setting stones in the non-traditional metals (SS, cobalt, titanium, etc), is really difficult, so that swapping stones is not do-able, BUT, that some manufactures can do special orders for the material and the stones of your choice.

Also though, I read reviews of a few alt-metal rings with stones on both Overstock and Amazon, and several said that the stone fell out within months and had to be sent back to the manufacturer for replacement. So, overall, it doesn’t sound like such a great option.

You bring up an excellent point, I was positive I’d seen SS rings with diamonds in them on eBay, but I just searched and the only ones with real diamonds were men’s bands. That is a difficult situation, I think you might be better off finding something that is similar to the SS style you love if you are set on having a true diamond in your ring.

FI is a jeweler and I just asked him. He said it would be near impossible since you can’t solder stainless steel. He suggested silver instead.
