@Daisy4:  I think it’s possible. What shape center stone are you looking for?

This can be done. Would you consider a white sapphire as well?

@Daisy4:  

The best way to get what you’re looking for is to purchase a loose stone in the size you want, buy the setting you want, and then have a local jeweler set the stone in the setting for you. I’d totally suggest going with moissanite. If it turns out it bothers you that it’s not a diamond, you can switch the stone later, but you’ll already have the right size setting you want, because you picked out the size you wanted in moissanite already rather than having to go with a smaller diamond or something and then change everything later. You could also find you don’t want to give up your moissy after you have it like some other bees :).

This ebay seller will handmake a setting for you in your ring size and for the particular size stone you want for very little money. I even thought I read somewhere that they will set your stone for you if you mail it in (if you’re comfortable doing that). Otherwise, a jeweler should be able to do it for under $50 (at least the ones I’ve talked to have quoted this)…

Anyway, here’s the link to the ebay seller. They have a ton of settings to choose from and the quality looks better than a lot of other ebay settings I’ve seen:

Good luck!

@Daisy4:  You can also look at pawn shops/preowned if you are not superstitous about that sort of thing. Give us an idea of the size and design types you are interested in and I’m sure we can find you something.

I would not suggest DiamondNexus, as their rings are overpriced for what they are – they literally use $5 czs in theit jewelry And sell it at a huge markup.  Cz’s not a bad suggestion for a temporary solution, I just don’t recommend that specific company.

one thing to keep in mind with halos is that they usually have to be custom made for the stone. I think some of the pre-made rings posted here are good suggestions.
