This allows couples to select a setting that they love and then the ring can be adjusted to fit a diamond of their choice. This can work extremely well for those couples who may already be in possession of a diamond. Likewise, for those couples with a budget this can be a great way to get the setting and surround that you love, with the option of selecting a diamond from your price range.

For example, you may love one of their settings which is displayed with a round brilliant cut diamond, however your heart is set on a square cut diamond. Generally, the rings can be altered in their settings to accommodate this.
Although a setting may be recommending a certain range of a size of stone, often this can be adjusted accordingly as well.
