The owners of Unique Settings, whom are also successful New Jersey retailers, were growing increasingly frustrated because they could not find a supplier to provide the custom jewelry items they needed for their customers. If they needed a ring in platinum that was offered in 14K, the suppliers did not stock it. If they needed a ring for a 3-carat center instead of the one-carat version that was offered, the casting houses did not make it. If their customers wanted a design in a different total weight, the suppliers did not offer that version also. If they needed a ring to be in a size 3, they were told that the design could not be sized to this finger size in the metal. Some companies offered to sell them their in-stock mountings set with their choice of stones, and stone quality, but none would allow them to send in their stones for the job. In addition, when they finally found a company that would make their custom piece, they usually took up to 4 weeks, if they were willing to take the project. Over time, they realized that the 24-hour companies were not filling many of their important sales needs.
