by GemLovers! » Jan 5, 2001 Hi,I am looking to get a custom setting made. I'm not near a major centre so I have limited options with regards to traditional jewellers to deal with but they have all quoted around $375 for 18K gold and $1200 for platinum. The setting will be a bypass style so it has a little more metal than a simple tiffany ring and will be a custom made by goldsmith (i.e. not just chosen from a catalog) as the options I've seen in catalogs for by pass styles were very limited. Hence I created my own sketches of what I wanted.I have all the diamonds (including the acent stones) which consist of 7 stones - 6 accents ranging from 2.5 to 3.5mm and a center 5x8 oval. All need to be claw set.Am I getting hosed? Are there any internet jewellers who create custom settings which work in platinum?
