Hey everyone, here''s hoping someone can help...I was wondering if it was cheaper to design my own ring or buy one already made? And, if we chose to buy a diamond from Blue Nile and had James Allen set it in one of their settings, do they charge a special fee for customizing/labor? How much more are the fees usually? Oh, and let''s say I want to custom make my ring and I bought the diamond from Blue Nile and wanted Leon M to set it, must I go to New York? I was at his site and was reading his RULES OF ENGAGEMENT and was wondering if it was possible to have Leon make my ring via the internet and phone conversations solely...the BF and I can''t afford to fly to NY. And, I know, if we had to ask, we probably couldn''t afford it, blah blah...but I think having an idea of the total cost is very helpful when we''re trying to save for said ering. Thank you guys.
