Hey,i do not know any online shops of your area. you search on google for that. You may find a good online jewelry stores on that. But my advise do not purchase jewelry from online store. Personally visit their shop and buy it from their shop rather than online

I recommend JTV they have lots of settings for various size stones.  You can trust the authenticity of their settings and their stones as well.   They have settings that are quick sets as well as the prong settings requiring a person experienced to do the setting.   They are reasonable priced and very authentic.  I purchase most of my jewelry from them as i trust them to be what they are reported to  be.    Also you can get the setting to match the size, shape and etc to match your stone.

Expertise

Have a question about jewelry repair or working with precious metal jewelry and gemstones? For many years up to December 31, 2010, I was a working professional bench jeweler, involved everyday with setting stones in mountings, designing and making jewelry, repairing and limited custom manufacture. If you work with jewelry as a hobby or as a profession, I might be able to help. I deal with the retail business, not mass production. Ask privately if you wish. See the box for that: It keeps your question between us. Please DO NOT ask MAKER'S MARKS, but metal quality marks are fine to ask. Please DO NOT ask diamond prices. See a gemologist for that.

Experience

I have extensive experience in design, service and making of jewelry. I deal mostly with precious metals and gemstones but work with many materials as needed and usable to create an artistic design. My experience also includes freelance photography and photographer of jewelry and similar items for a former employer and individuals. Design of custom items requires reading the desires of the client and being clear on what can be done within that framework...then fulfilling the transition of idea to reality. Effective communications is essential in a working designer/producer and customer relationship.

Education/Credentials
Education is English/Physics! Started in human resources, to advertising, to jewelry...wow, what a road. I have had formal training in jewelry work and many shared experiences with top grade jewelers. We just never know were we will go or be. Follow your best, your dreams, with some discretion! Don't let the work tear up your body along the way as it has mine.
