Custom Ring Settings?

Does anyone know anything about customizing your ring settings (engagement ring) to fit diamonds that you pick out or may already have?

Is this even possible? :/:

Thanks, in advance, for any help!

most high end jewelers have a tech that can build a ring around what stones you have and possibly alter the one you already have. If you are providing the stones it should not be that exspencive.

i was a custom jeweler.. for 22 years.. owned my own store.. you can customize any ring to fit any stone.. just have to find a good jeweler and make sure he knows what you want...and that you know what you want..

We have jewelers in the family. We buy the stone (Houston Gem Show, family hierloom, etc.) and they can work with you to pick a setting that you like or go completely custom.
Jared's also does good work.

I think this place will do it, but only with diamonds they sold, but I think any competent jewler will do it.

The engagement ring my girl wants.

Materialistic FTL. Who CARES if someone else has the same ring. You were happy with it (since you were with him when it was picked out) before you saw someone else with it. It's supposed to be about the sentimentality of it. To decide years after receiving it that you don't like it anymore and want a different one to be "original" is kinda "eh" to me.

Then again, when you shop at a "chain", that's going to happen every time. Even getting a custom setting doesn't guarantee you'll never see another ring similar to it for the rest of your life. You going to redo it in another 5 years if that happens?
