by kb1gra » Apr 12, 2019 Here is my dilemma. Many years ago, I tried on a particular ring at a particular jeweler. The ring was absolutely perfect. Years went by, I got a different engagement ring, all was well. However, I still really want that ring and as I was just promoted to sr. vice president, I'd like to purchase one for a little token. The problem is, I've never seen the setting anywhere else, and they do not set outside stones except in exception/heirloom situations. The good news is that they do use AGS000 diamonds. The bad news is, they are overpriced to varying degrees (most are I, SI1). The price for a .61tdw (.41ctr, .10 sides each) is $3395. The settings are simple but they're not stock and a lot of the setting details are important to me - stone height, shape of the bezels, shank width. It's a very sleek, low profile ring, and I don't want big stones, but I do want them to be perfect superideals. Is it worth overpaying to some degree to get the setting that seems to only be available here? I am worried if I try to have someone replicate it, that some part of it will always be "off" to me. I do have an original piece from this jeweler that belongs to my mom that I could take detailed measurements of if needed for a design.
