So the new polls only let you chose one so sorry for all the options!
There has been talk on this form about getting a “nice” setting and putting a CZ in it because the budget is ate by the setting, or another said that you “wouldn’t put a $10,000 stone in a $200 setting”
I’m a solitaire girl so ya my stone cost several grand more then my setting, and I have LOVED some designer settings then see the price for just the setting and think “DAMN!”
So just for fun, no need to post or share if you dont feel like it or want to. But what cost more the setting or the stone (reguardless of type of stone) or was it a package cost?

Since mine is a plain 18K YG setting, the cost of the stone far, far, far outweighed that of the setting. But that was unavoidable because I wasn’t interested in a designer setting or a setting with stones in it.

I have a 2.2 carat diamond, so my stone was much, much more expensive than my halo setting.

My diamond was given to us by his mom, so I voted that the setting cost more. However, the appraised value of the stone is about equal to the setting.
Since the stone is smaller than I would have wanted if we were shopping from scratch, he really blinged out my setting and wedding band.

NEAM2014: My stone was $15,000 and my jewelercustom made a setting for it that cost $1,100. My FI wanted to put all the $ he was spending into the stone and we can alway upgrade the setting later.
