I have a few questions about changing diamond settings.
1. Anyone have bought rings from Fred Meyer Jewelers? Have you changed the setting from yellow gold to white gold? Did they charge you extra because of different gold color? As far as I know, the price in the catalog for the same ct. of diamond ring is no different between yellow or white gold. Why do they charge extra by changing it during the fitting?
They charge $249 for color change for 18K gold setting!
2. If they charge that much, should I just go somewhere to find a new setting and have a jeweler to mount from the old to the new? How much is the labor cost for unmounting and mounting in general?
