@NYCkindaBee:  Could you go in and see the setting on Monday?  I would probably try and call the jeweler and see if they can make some sort of arrangement for you.

@NYCkindaBee:  Sometimes, depending on the store, they will come in during off hours by appointment.  I know our jeweler did this for my husband when he was getting my ring.

Considering the fact they are closed for two days and you want to spend a nice chunk of change, I can’t believe they aren’t willing to extend it for one day.

I would definitely call and explain the situation. Maybe someone will consider meeting with you for 15 minutes during off-hours just to let you quickly take a look at it. If you’re going to be spending a lot of money there, and they’re reasonable people to deal with, I don’t see how they can’t be a little flexible to help you out.

I agree with @luckylady3090. They’re asking you to make a HUGE committment in a short period of time and are not being very accomodating. Ask if they’re willing to make a private appointment for you to come in and see the setting. If not, let them know that this will likely affect your decision to work with them… that may make them jump through a few hoops for you.

@NYCkindaBee:  I wouldnt rush deciding on a setting either. Can he propose with the stone and you can go in after the holiday rush and take your time and have it set then?

When the setting comes in they should be able to lay your stone on top of it and take a picture of it.  We just did this in the jeweler’s office and, even though I was there, I was not able to see it at the end of my hand due to a cast on my hand.  So, the jeweler and hubs stood up, took a picture with my phone of it and showed me the pic.  It was enough for me to make a decision.  i would first ask for a private appointment and if that isn’t possible go the pic route. If you know you love it already it will be a pretty simple decision once you see it in real life.

Also, if you know the brand of the setting you like you might ask on the hive if someone else has it and see if they can post a pic.  You can also look at the setting manufacturer’s website and see if they say anything about the deadline.  Can they ship you the sample like online sellers do?

I’m sending you a pic so you can see how mine looked with the stone laying on top of it.  It looked like a really close representation to me.
