Hi everyone,Well i winding down to a final decision about the diamond purchase.. here are my two options:1. Purchase the ring complete at Mondera (but they don't have a 0.5x/D/VVS2+ available yet)2. Purchase the 4-prong setting w/ box and buy a diamond separate. This would mean I would need to get it set somewhere and appriased.#1 is easy (yet, the diamond probably won't be as good as I would like it to be), but I was thinking of #2. Are there any places in the Baltimore/DC area that do both of these and that won't swindle me or anything? And is this the best option in your opinions? thanks

Thanks for the reply.I was thinking actually, of getting a diamond from Superbcert and then getting that set in a ring from Mondera. Do you think because he is a diamond vendor, there might be some 'friction'?

It is hard to find a jeweler who will do the work when neither the stone nor the setting came from their store. I would suggest that you ask whomever you buy the setting from to set the stone. However make sure they will be accountable in case of damage to the stone. You might also try I. Gorman and Sons jeweler in Washington DC. I have never purchased from them but received wonderful service while I was looking for my ring. They have been around for a long time and have a wonderful reputation. Good luck.
