Someday I want to have an EC in a twist shank pave setting. I know you're supposed to get the diamond first, then the setting to fit it, BUT, I found the setting I want at a small fraction of the price on Ebay! I've noticed this setting is hard to find inexpensively, so I'm afraid the opportunity will pass me by if I don't get it now. The listing says that it can be made to accommodate whatever size stone you'd like. I plan to first set it with a .5 ct EC and upgrade later. Could I possibly order this setting for a 4x6 mm with no diamond in hand, buy a diamond to fit later, then alter the head later to fit a larger stone once I can upgrade? Would you buy the setting now if you were me or wait? P.S. The actual setting I'm considering is a Verragio look-alike, not actual Verragio.
