Jared [shudders] and since 1910 have something similar.  But your best bet would be to go custom.  You’ll save a fortune if you have it made versus buying retail.

janeerror :  I would find a local reputable free standing independent jeweler and have them custom make it. My jeweler will make anything you ask for. I mean within reason as long as it is structurally sound. But go custom. ๐Ÿ™‚ And it is not as expensive as you may think a lot of times it can even be cheaper. Best of luck bee.

 I was going to say… maybe check with David Klass for a quote. He’s so reasonably priced.

Kay Jewelers has a Neil Lane that is very similar. They can take the diamond out and put in one you want. Just have to do in store.

So if you’re looking for a trusting jeweler to make you a nice affordable setting and use your stone. I personally trust Russells Jewelers on Etsy. He has great customer service and just made my engagement ring. I hope that helps!

My boyfriend and I went with David Klass – even though he is custom, he was way cheaper than all of the jewelers in our city.  We saved well over $1000 (and we also provided the stones).  Custom does not mean expensive.

I’m another one who says to contact David Klass. Even though he does custom, he does great work and makes it affordably too!

Beautiful setting! I vote custom too. David Klass and Stephanie with Pristine Custom Rings on Etsy are both the most reasonable I’ve found for the quality. Raven Fine Jewelers was a close second and Michael has phenomenal customer service. All three of them do actually. 

Whatever you do, please update with pics! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Check with some local jewelers. Many will do reasonably priced custom settings. The one you like is fairly simple, so I imagine you could find someone local to make it to your liking. Good luck!

Hey! 

 

 

I just wanted to offer input from a jewelry store perspective!

 

When someone brings in a photo we check for something that matches within our catalog, then offer custom if there isn’t something almost identical avaliable.

 

Generally ordering a style that is already avaliable is the most affordible, but having something completely custom isn’t going to cause the setting to be unreasonably expensive. One positive about ordering a style that is already offered is you know exactly what it will look like and may be able to see a sample mounting in person before ordering.

 

One thing to consider when reaching out to jewelers about the mounting is that a small online shop is unlikely to have access to a large catalog while a more established jewelry store should have access to a large catalog.

 

Both are good options. It just depends on what you’re comfortible with!
