My first ring setting  (before getting one custom made) was $325 from a small local jeweler. It was a 14k white gold solitaire. I still have it as my stand in ring and it’s gorgeous. I’ve also seen some beautiful rings at pawn shops (just replace the center stone) and I’ve seen people on here talk about getting great settings on ebay.

lovelyberylbee6 :  this setting is from amcordesign.com, it was around $600 for SI quality diamonds in 14k, but you can chose the quality you want. It’s available in rose gold as well. They have tons of options and I highly recommend them.

Most of the cheaper settings in store are going to be either Stuller, made by the jeweler, or no name wholesale. We really can’t tell you what to look for, because every jeweler has different inventory. If you are willing to buy online, we’d have more suggestions.

Go to overnight mountings website – if you go to – http://www.overnightmountings.com/engagement-rings/single-row/prong-set.html – you’ll see a bunch of solitaire e-rings with 4 prong setting with diamonds in the band – exactly what you’re asking for – all that I looked at were around $700. 

I’ve found a lot of jewelry stores buy their settings from this company. You can see hundreds of settings here – and they are offered in all metal types (silver, yellow, rose, white gold, palladium, platinum, 10, 14, 18k). I found the setting I wanted, then contacted my local jeweler – he ordered the setting, and I got a diamond from him (I wanted to be able to buy in person – to look at it up close – sorry James Allen!). By doing it this way I had a very good idea what the setting would cost (yes, I assumed my jeweler would add a little mark-up).  I found the setting of my dreams here! 

Good luck!

My ring set is a Stuller. I chose it from a Stuller setting book at my jewlery store. Also you can check their website for a specific setting and order it through your jewler.

lovelyberylbee6 :  Look for jewelers carrying Gabriel & Co settings. There’s a wide variety of settings under $1,000 that meet your different criteria.
