Just a follow up question - I'd planned on having my stone set in a fairly inexpensive setting here in Minneapolis and then flying to NY w/my fiance once I've proposed for a day of 'setting' shopping. I'm fine w/burning the $300 or so for the short term setting, but will a jeweler in NYC be able to set it while we wait? I'm not sure I'd want to leave a 10K diamond in a distant land. While it sounds like a fun way to celebrate, if it won't work, I want to be realistic about it. What do you all think?

A 10 carat diamond? WOW!!!! I'd like to see that baby!!

Anyway, I've heard that it's not recommended to have your diamond set by a jeweler who didn't sell you the stone. They're liable to be bitter about it and deliberately break it/switch it/ruin it, etc. Is there someone in NYC who you know and trust?

Oops, just realized my mistake. You meant $10,000,000...not 10 carats! Leave it to a wishful thinking woman!

Hey, just FYI
If there is a Jared, Kay, JBR, Belden, Osterman, in your area go up and ask them when their next remount show is. You pick from 1 of about 300 mountings and they set it while you watch.
