There have been recent questions about how some of us find such treasures on ebay. The best answer is "search, search, search!" Since I have nothing better to do today, and since I'm trying out some new search configurations, I thought maybe I'd try to be of service.

If you are looking for something specific, go ahead and post you desires here, and I'll attempt to find you some options. Make sure to include size, metal preference, new or pre-loved, budget, and I'll post what I find on here for you.

This is just intended as a constructive way to blow my day, and maybe help a few people find their dreams!

upgradable, you are so sweet to offer to help. the problem is once someone posts links here is usually drives up the price of the ebay auctions b/c you''ve go so many lurkers and members hunting for deals. I''d keep all my ebay finds to myself
searching ebay can be fun though and I can see why you''d want to do it

Someone awhile ago mentioned that when they search ebay they search for terms that are similar but not exact to what they''re looking for. For example, if you''re looking for an "Old Mine Cut" stone you might search for "Old Mine" "Old Miner" "OMC" "Old Minor" "Old Minner" "Old stone" "Old Cut" etc...

I''ve also found recent luck searching under Stores instead of just the general search.

Thanks so much!


As I previously noted I am looking for a new setting to replace my broken engagement ring. I have searched eBay for settings with varying luck.


A new setting is not an expense my husband and I had planned so we don’t have too much to spend. I am looking for 14K or 18K white gold with some side stones, perhaps a pre-owned setting. Trying to stay under $1,000.00. Let me know if you would rather email than post the listings as I understand the issues with driving up the prices.


Thanks you again for your offer, I appreciate any help you could give me!

Aww, you ARE sweet, Uppy!

Here''s mine:

6'' or taller
Nicely built
Sweet and kind
Employed (this is a must!)
Loves teenagers (another must!)
Loves diamonds and will think of nothing about spending his last dime to purchase one for his wife.


I prefer the Buy It Now option too, in case a lurker is thinking of snagging it away from me

Here's a Platinum Ritani three stone mounting, but it has side sapphires instead of diamonds. I just thought it was beautiful at a great price!

And a Tacori style mounting from Melony Pino.

This one would just need the proper head added for your stone.

How timely. I''m trying to find a setting for my daughter. She wants a 3-stone trellis (I may give up on this, though) for a center (gemstone, not diamond) approx 7.5mm in white gold. That''s the same size, approx., as a 1.5 ct round diamond.

And a great price too!

ltl- check out this site for the ring named Harmony. You can then choose the size stones you want. Then call them for the price without stones. This is a good company to work with.

I think you''re doing a great service to us! You''re too sweet and thank you!

If you have time, can you help me find a simple white gold (14 kt is fine) 4 prong cathedral setting, for a 8.5 mm stone? (about 2.25 ct. in diamonds - this is a tourmaline). I can get the ring sized (I''m a 3.5) so no matter. And CHEAP. Really cheap! Under $200

Thank you!

BrownEyedGirl, I thould be able to find you some nice options!

Here's one! It has side diamonds flush set in the shank of the ring, but the price is right. All you'd have to do is choose the right head for your stone!

These are the only other two I see. They are slightly above your budget and you'll still have to change out the heads. That first one is looking by far the best! I'll keep searching though.

Master,

Can you help me to locate a Leon Mege HW three stone diamond ring or micropave ring on eBay or other alternative venues? :)

Given the popularity of LM''s work here, I''m surprised that I''m not able to locate any of them...

Hiya VRB - and what makes you THINK that I am NOT looking in that age group either???
*guffaw*

Just kidding - I happen to be happily married so yes, I will be happy to share that string when I stumble upon it - no matter what age group or gender.

Sorry for the threadjack, Uppy.

Rosebud, when you say "solitaire" do you mean diamond? What do you mean when you say cheap? What size?
