I’m not sure the conversion rate but I have had several rings reset in the US and the jeweler I use costs $100. It looks high to me but again I’m not sure how much that is in usd. I would get other quotes and compare. Goodluck

I wanted to add I have never purchased from this jeweler either only use them for my resetting and they do great work.

If they are designing the setting then it seems like a decent deal. Maybe other bees will chime in with more knowledge.

If they are providing a new setting, that price is reasonable.

Yes, that is reasonable for a new setting IMO.

I paid around $450 for my white gold setting. So yes, that’s about right.

Gold costs money.

That is very reasonable for an 18kt setting.  I hope you enjoy your new ring!

peach11 : I once had the band changed on a solitaire ring. I changed the band to 18k white gold, but kept the original platinum prongs. The platinum prongs are considered more secure. Moreover, there was less risk in damaging the diamond. The labor associated with this cost $100 USD a few years ago in a major US city.

That’s a very reasonable price for a new 18k setting!
