We''re about to purchase a 2 ct cushion from James Allen. I''m in love with the double prong, tapered baguette setting from Leon but since we just bought a place, I''m going with a simple 2.2 mm wire basket solitaire from JA: http://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/classic-solitaire-settings/ring/item_57-1896_design.asp?module=setting Maybe we''ll get the Leon later.

JA wants to charge $50 to modify the current prongs to claw prongs. In the 3D rendering, the setting appears to have claws but in the photos of recent rings sold, they look like bead prongs.

Questions - Is $50 worth it to change it into a single claw prong? Will I even notice it? Is that a good price? I know it''s not much but this is a temporary-ish setting.

If I want double claw prongs, it''ll cost $200 extra.

Does anyone have a single or double claw prong setting from JA? Any links to pictures?
