That looks like a stock stuller setting to me.  Any local place would be able to order it, and set your stone for you.  Just try googling 4/6/8 prong trellis solitaire.  OR-it should only cost about $200 for someone to make that in 10k white gold.  The price goes up with the higher the kt πŸ™‚  good luck!

From my knowledge, jewlers don’t have a roblem ordering in just bands.

I also have a >2mm band and solitaire, which we got from OroSpot on Etsy. They have a NY store, if you live in the area. I LOVE the ring and service I got from them!

Charliejeorge :  Yay!! Congrats! And yes, when I went in to my jeweler he ordered a band for me that I liked. I thought it was super unique until he pulled up the website and I had a ton to choose from! Everything from solatire, micro pave to full on insanely decorated! From what my friends have said, this is pretty standard (at least here in the US, but I can’t imagine its different anywhere else!) So even if you want something a little different, most jewelers can find what you are looking for. Since you will be setting a diamond you already have (how cool! Love the story) you may want to go to a local to really work on the perfect ring! Congrats and I can’t wait to see it!

Charliejeorge :  Sounds perfect! You’ll have so much fun putting it together (I know I did!)!! Plus then it will be really special!

Then all you have to do is try not to go crazy with excitement while (not so) patiently waiting! πŸ˜‰

Echoing what everyone has already said, but just wanted to note that you’re not the only picky Bee here! I was so picky it took me nearly a month and multiple meetings to figure out my perfect setting, and we ended up having to go the custom route to set my BF’s great-grandmother’s diamond. We’re about 3/4 into this process and my advice would be: have photos that lend towards one direction of what you want, make a list of important things you want, in the order you want them. For example, I had to specify a few times my concern about how high the ring would sit before it really became clear to them it was a make it or break it issue on my list. I wish I would have ranked changes/notes in order of importance to them as while some of us get over the top about the look of a ring, they also have to be functional and house the stones. Be firm on your wants and don’t be afraid to speak out. Otherwise you’ll regret it

I hope you’ll share the ring during the process!
