I decided to look at stainless steel e-rings again, and I’ve found way more variety an options. I’ve read up on the pros and cons of the metal, and it seems like a good fit for me, and certainly a good price. The only problem is, they all come set with CZ stones which I would want to switch for another gemstone that won’t cloud. Would a jeweler be able to do this? or can stainless steel not be adjusted?

omg I have no idea….I heard they are a B*&^h to size so maybe the replacing the stones might be hard as well

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.

Should I ask a jeweler, or do they only work with gold and platinum?

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.
