Q: Are there any custom engagement ring designers that can create an unique setting for me? When my boyfriend proposes (it’s coming soon!), he has said that it will just be a diamond solitaire to begin with; the setting will be chosen later. This way the focus of the budget goes towards the diamond itself. The problem I’m having, is that I’m not one for a traditional setting; I like a ring that looks unique. I found one or two places, but they are both out of state (I’m in southern CA). Is there another way to create my setting that I’m not thinking of?
A: Any local jeweler can help your fiance customize a ring. Larger chains and department stores don’t do it. However any independent jeweler can help you create a unique piece. Where are you located?
