    Personally I wouldn’t risk it if you don’t want to take the chance of your diamonds being switched out.  I mean they might not, especially since as you said, the size and quality of the diamonds you’ll be sending over aren’t very high, but there is still the possibility of the seller either switching out your diamonds with something that isn’t a real diamond, or changing it out with something of an even lower quality.

    I wouldn’t risk it and would pay for a jeweler to set it properly.

    No.  Something like that needs to be done by a reputable jeweler.

    I would rather my diamond be handled by a local, reputable jeweler.

    Could you buy the Etsy set and then have a local jeweler add the diamonds to the setting?

    Definitely go to the local jeweler, even if it costs more!

    No way. Have the Etsy seller send you the setting and then take it to a jeweler to have it put together.

    You might not get your diamond back, theres a new scam where you send it, and they give you a fake lookalike back. dont risk it 🙂

    No but that’s because the monetary value of my diamond might well exceed their business’s annual profits. Too risky. In the case of melee, like yours, I probably would, in the case of a seller with a good reputation.

    Not a chance, I don’t trust people.

    @GFerg:  I agree, I’m sure you could buy the Etsy band and ask a local jeweler to put your diamonds in.  I’d bet that you will still save money.

    @GFerg:  This is what I was going to say too. If I’m leaving something valuable with someone, I want a real person and business building that I know the name and location of in case something goes wrong!

    Hells to the NO! Go to a local jeweler to have your diamond set in the setting of your choice, it doesn’t matter where you bought the diamond or setting from, any local jeweler will do the work for you.
