 I used the diamond from an old ring and he gave me credit for the gold in it too and it still cost me about $300 for the jewelers work. This is just for a pinkie ring and was several years ago.

eek mine has about 50 some on it. It looks almost like 3 bands in 1 right now.

Quoting youknowimloved:

It can cost a pretty penny, it just depends on what you want.

I had a gold ring with three diamonds in it and had each of the diamonds put into a different setting. It cost me about $90 each for the metal, labor and tax. It would have been more expensive if they needed cutting.

i picked it out myself. But we got it at a pawn shop and it just doesnt fit right and instead of haveing it resized id rather customize it now so its not so bulky.

Quoting Leobaby2007:

It all depends. I did it with my previous engagement ring after my divorce. Of course I used platinum and picked a really expensive setting because I can never do any thing inexpensively dammit, but it was worth it!!! It's beautiful and I wear it on my right hand. :-)
