Ouch! That is really steep. Though compared to the cost of upgrading to a 2ct or larger stone, 1500 isn’t too awful, I would assume?

@KatyYoung:  🙁 argh! that sucks that it’s going to cost so much to have it recast.  What are you thinking of doing now?

It sucks, but personally, I’d just suck it up and pay it to make sure it was the right size and done right.  It’s not a cheap stone you’re putting in and not a cheap setting, why cheap out and cut corners now.  I don’t have any experience with switching out heads but I’d worry about the structural integrity of swapping the head like that.  That could just be my lack of knowledge on the topic though.

Well, they have to make a new ring… That is a lot of labour.  I think the fact that they give you a deal on upgrading the mount at all is amazing!!!

If they are recasting it to accomodate a larger stone, they are making a whole new ring. Why would the cost be any less expensive than when you bought it brand new? It IS an entirely new setting and thus should carry the cost of one. Or maybe I’m misunderstanding something?
