All online (as well as brick-and-mortar) retailers have jewelers on their staff who can take the diamond that you select and mount it onto a gold or platinum ring setting of your choice, if that’s what you want. It is a simple three-step process:
Step 1: You select a diamond of your choice (you will need to decide on its shape, quality, and price).
Step 2: You pick the setting style for the ring, earring, or pendant, including the metal type (usually yellow gold, white gold, or platinum). You can either pick a solitaire (which is a ring with only one diamond stone) or a multiple-stone ring.
Step 3: You pay, and your jeweler combines the diamond stone with the jewelry setting you selected.
If you are thinking of buying a diamond engagement ring or some other diamond jewelry for thousands of dollars, the most expensive part of your purchase is likely to be the diamond stone itself, because metal settings are typically not as expensive as diamonds. That’s where DiamondPriceGuru.com can help you save money—using our Web site you can compare as many diamonds as you want by price, quality, and diamond certification, from 10 online retailers. You can compare tens or thousands of diamonds, depending on how much time you want to spend on this and how quickly you select your diamond’s features.
