Happy Stories of Used Settings and New Stones,
With what has happen to my ring my confidence has really been shaken regarding used settings. So much so I have seriously considered giving up on my search for the perfect used Tiffany setting all together and just getting a new Vatche or other Tiffany replica setting for my new AG. The thing is I really LOVE the idea of used settings SO much. It is my type of recycling and I really don't want to give it up. So I would REALLY appreciate some happy successful stories (and pictures if you have them) of settings that you all have had reset with a different stones that have turned out beautifully.

I don't have a story... but I do not think you should give up this search!! What happened was very unfortunate, but it was totally the jewelers fault!! Not some flaw with the used setting. There are a lot of shoddy jewelers out there, but there are also a lot of great ones! Wink

I am sorry you have had so many troubles - bad juju with jewelery is the worst!! I've done this many times, here's one example of a ring I got used that I put a new stone in! I love finding used settings because it's great recycling, and I really feel I'm bringing something back to life!

I agree that you shouldn't give up on the idea of recycling a setting. I think it's a great way as @Turks said of breathing new life into a piece, while also saving your wallet a wee bit of cash. I hope to have a few examples for you in a few days. Wink
