I love number two, it’s simple and elegant.

Isn’t number 2 a JA setting? They will set a provided diamond up to 1ct for the setting price plus an additional fee (I believe). 

Do you mean basket when you say underwire? If that’s the case you won’t need one. They set much bigger diamonds without a basket. 

I like both settings but I personally believe diamonds on the prongs are a waste. And I’d go without a basket. 

I never looked excessively into bespoken jewelry but I had my wedding band made by David Klass and I am beyond happy. Actually I am in seventh heaven. But you’d have to get a quote from him. I don’t believe he’s extremely expensive but not cheap either. But you’ll definitely get your moneys worth and the ring you want is pretty standard so I’d ask him for a quote in any case. 

Also i just thought of happy jewelers. They seem to be fairly priced as well

Mark Morrell is a custom ring designer who works with platinum, and he’s excellent! I may be biased because he made my ring, but I love it and the quality is impeccable. He’s also easy to work with and very responsive; he always replied to my fiance’s emails within 24 hours. This is my ring (it’s the Slim Petite Torchiere setting, 2mm platinum band with a slight taper toward the center):
