I have a diamond but need a setting


If this is you, then look no further—we provide settings for anyone who has their own diamond. Alternatively, we can make the complete ring for you, with a diamond or any gemstone type. As a result, you will find the perfect diamond engagement ring. We carry far more designs that most high street jewellers. Furthermore, we offer bespoke jewellery settings for irregular stone sizes. For example CAD designed settings. 


If you are a member of the public or a member of the jewellery trade, we would be happy to supply you with just the ring mount or setting. We can produce both empty ring mounts and semi-set ring mounts, finished and ready for your main Diamond to be added. If you would like us to set your Diamond, this can also be organised.

If the quote is acceptable to you, respond with your address details and we will raise an invoice ahead of starting work. We can give you any advice or information you might need along the way. 

Buying the Ring Mount or Engagement Ring Setting Only


We sell finished rings, finished ring mounts, partially set ring mounts and even castings to both trade clients and private clients. If you're wondering why we can provide just the ring mount, without the main Diamond, these are two reasons. 


1. Perhaps you already own or have sourced your own Diamond or gemstone.

2. Maybe you already have a ring and would like to transfer a Diamond into a new design. Some of our clients inherit rings. Whilst the Diamond is perfectly suited, the design is not always in-line with the desired style.  


Unsetting an Engagement Ring


There is no charge to unset an engagement ring. Unsetting your engagement ring is included in our work to add your diamond to a new ring mount. We do, however, charge a small fee of approximately £25.00 to set your diamond into a new ring mount. Please contact us for more help and guidance.


Did you know: Purchasing the complete Engagement Ring from our website, automatically includes a discount for the ring mount and qualifies your purchase for a free size adjustment, 60 days returns and includes a lifetime warranty? 

Eternity Rings - Empty Mounts and Settings


It is possible to provide just the mount or setting only for an Eternity Ring. Please note that most of our regular Diamond set Eternity Ring styles are not available as empty settings. We can CAD design and create an eternity ring to accommodate your stone sizes. The photograph shows an Eternity Ring mount ready to be set with Diamonds. We can also provide matching sets of Diamonds if you require Diamonds in addition to the Eternity Ring mount. 

Round Engagement Ring Settings


Our most popular Engagement Ring setting has to be our collection of Round Engagement Ring settings. Owing to the consistent relationship between size and carat weight, we can price the perfect setting for your Round Brilliant cut Diamond. Just choose your perfect round setting and tell us your preferred precious metal and finger size and we will quote you for the setting itself without the Diamond. 


Semi-Set Ring Mounts and Settings


We are happy to create our regular designs, and bespoke rings as semi-set ring mounts. Semi-set rings include outer diamonds, ready for you to add your diamond or gemstone (typically to the centre of the ring.) In addition, we can set your central diamond or gemstone for you. 

We help you to find the perfect ethical Diamond.


NEW!!! Serendipity Diamonds is a listed stockist for fully traceable Canadamark Diamonds. GIA certified. Unlike most other certified Diamonds, we can provide 100% traceable Diamonds with documentation back to the rough Diamond weight and mine of origin

You won't find these on a Diamond list—contact us today for details.  


If you have not yet sourced your Diamond, we would be delighted to assist you in finding the perfect stone. Our diamond concierge service includes photographic support ahead of purchasing your stone rather than buying from lists without seeing the Diamond first. Our Diamond concierge service is used in several countries including UK, Australia, USA, Ireland and Canada. If you already have your own Diamond arranged, we are happy to provide just the setting or ring mount only. 

Will the ring mount include a hallmark?


We will supply your finished ring mount with a UK hallmark unless you request otherwise. This will verify that the metal you have ordered has been independently verified by a UK Assay Office. 


Timescales for ring mounts 


Timescale varies, depending on the item, but for regular Engagement Ring settings and mounts, please allow around 2-3 weeks. If you want to buy a casting or un-hallmarked ring mount, timescale will be shorter. Many castings and un-finished ring mounts can be provided within the week. We also keep many finished ring mounts in stock. 


Castings for the Jewellery Trade


If you are a member of the jewellery trade and prefer to buy a casting, then we can do this. However, it is less expensive to purchase a finished ring mount, since the end weight of the ring is less, once the casting has been cleaned up and the mount finished. Since ring mounts are costed on the finished weight, the price is less than that of a casting.

We accept payment by credit card with most card types supported along with PayPal and bank transfer as alternative options.
