The easiest approach is to find an existing style that can accommodate your stone (s) and has the design elements you love. The process of setting the diamond is normally very straight forward. Choosing an existing style, rather than creating something from scratch, removes much of the uncertainty over how the final piece will look. And it is normally more cost effective than doing a custom, built from scratch, jewelry project.

Choosing an existing style does not mean you have to settle for conventional! There are thousands upon thousands of different styles in the designer world offering a full spectrum of choices from traditional and relatively simple, to ornate and artistic. There are retro styles that evoke the vintage designs of a romantic past, and avant-garde designs that push the artistic envelope of contemporary design.
Browsing the catalogues of the top designer brands is not only a great first step to understanding the possibilities, but also to finding a style that has all the right design elements for your project. Most designs are offered in your choice of precious metal, and often these brands offer some customization. In this way you can put a personal stamp on the piece without having to go a full custom route.
