    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.
