You could probably have it melted down but it really won’t be a substantial amount of gold, nothing enough to make the type of necklace you have posted for example.  My suggestion would be to try and sell your setting and get some money for it, it probably won’t be close to what you paid for it unfortunately.  Or if you have some older jewellery that you can melt down with your ring you should have enough to make a very nice pendant.  My brother-in-law is a jeweller and used to work in gold and jewellery manufacturing so from my understanding and the total gold weight of the ring you might be able to get a very small simple pendant out of it.

@AcheneMalefic:  i agree with @GonnaBeAFind.  i don’t think you will be happy with the cost of making that necklace (which is very pretty btw).  i personally would either sell the setting as a semi-mount or save the setting and put your first child’s birthstone in it.  then you can pass that ring down to your child when they get older.  that ring will hold a lot of meaning.
