@DrD711:  It’s generally not recommended, since there’s no guarantee that the prongs will fit the stone you pick. If it doesn’t fit, the entire ring head may have to be rebuilt by a jeweler, if even possible, which will most likely be an extra cost. Many jewelers won’t sell their settings separately for this reason.

@DrD711:  it may be more difficult to find a suitable stone to accommodate the setting but not impossible.  it depends on the setting and your stone expectations.

Where did he buy the setting from?

Why would he buy it without a center stone? 

It’s not advisable to buy the setting first… You will have to buy a stone that fits… And like others have said… the setting may have to be rebuilt…

Maybe he intends on buying a center stone from the same place he bought the setting?

Like, Blue Nile allows you to purchase settings… then you can purchase a diamond… But, even doing that… You will have to find a local jeweler to set it…
