Have the jeweller set the 4 claws at the points of the compass instead?

@excitingtimes:  Even though you don’t want to get something made custom, it’s not as scary as it sounds. It is likely the easiest and cheapest, since they will just be able to pick the right size for the ring. I would take that picture to your local jeweler and let them know that’s what you want. 

 

That’s what I did- it took about 2 weeks and cost me $300 for everything, and now I have a place right in town where I can take my ring to be fixed,cleaned, etc for free. * mine also has the narrowing you like, but a little more subtle. I honestly think this is the way to go!

ETA For something like that, it wouldn’t even necessarily be custom. You would pick the shank and the basket, and he would just put them together. Same as ordering off the internet, but with a book and maybe some real examples instead

@excitingtimes:  The narrowing of the shank is called tappered.  Do you know your GF’s style?  Modern/contemporary jewelery is not my style, and I was just wondering if she told you something that made you think of this for her, or if she already wears modern jewelery now.

Here’s a few from google images

I have a ring that tapers that way and I LOVE it!!! It’s also a cathedral setting. Very simple, but beautiful and elegant. Diamond is 1.7ct round brilliant, I have size 6 finger
