I have fallen in love with the wink cz cartier cushion cut. Right now we cant afford a 14k gold or etc setting. So we think getting this setting and popping out the stone will work. Here is the ring- http://www.berricle.com/cushion-cut-cubic-zirconia-cz-925-sterling-silver-halo-ring-2-04-ct-jewelry-r254-4.htm Will wink replace the stone? Has anyone done this? Any pics of the results?

Wink swaps stones from Berricle settings often, lots of the girls on the betterthandiamond forum buy berricle and other types of silver rings just to have the stones swapped. Wink currently has my sterling silver tacori iv ring, he will be replacing the stone with his synthtic sapphire oval.
You should send an email, Wink and his assistant Melissa are great at answering questions, they will be able to tell you if that setting will work with the stone you want.
Hope that helps!

Ohhh, thanks for posting this! I was just thinking about doing the same thing! This was the setting I was thinking of replacing with a cartier cushion sapphire: http://www.berricle.com/round-cut-cubic-zirconia-cz-925-sterling-silver-solitaire-ring-1-67-ct-jewelry-r505-cl.htm Good do know I can send them the setting and they can do it for me instead of bringing it to another jeweler.

@mrsmay07: Do you know approximately how much they charge to re-set a ring? Thanks!
