Hey! I don’t have much experience ring shopping, since my enagement came as a total surprise…however he got my ring at our local jewelers – a family owned jewelery shop who has a good reputation around town. When I went in to look for protection plans I looked around and the rings and they had alot of unique selections that ranged from very low profile to very very high profile. I’m not sure how the larger jewelry stores selections are, but it might be worth it to check out a local jeweler near you! Good Luck! πŸ™‚

 

Here’s a pic of mine!

After a long searching period (it took me 3 months), we got my engagement ring in April 2010 from 25karats.com. Here is the picture of my ring. I just looove it. I’m so happy about the quality, especially the price. Their prices are very competitive (I compared so many stores) and the customer service is amazing. The rep. helped us a lot about deciding on the diamond via online chat. (45 min. not joking!) I hope this helps.

We are getting married in October 2010 and we already ordered our wedding bands from them again. We’ll receive the bands this Friday. So excited!!!

Check my wedding band coming on the way (set with round cut diamonds):http://www.25karats.com/product/view/1624-0-60-ct-princess-cut-channel-set-diamond-wedding-band.html  

This is my fiance’s wedding ring: http://www.25karats.com/wedding_bands/show/4340-bestseller-wave-design-two-tone-wedding-ring.html

I’ve noticed a lot of the emerald-cuts and the princess cuts seem to sit lower since they’re wider. All your pics were of round rings, though, so I’m not sure if you dislike that style or just haven’t come across any that you like, but it’s something to consider! There’s also a new style of setting where the stone actually sits below the setting, it would end up sort of like this: <->, with the “-” being the diamond. I can’t think of the name, but maybe you could ask a jeweler? Good luck!

what about bezel?  you said no solitaire, do you mean you don’t want just a single stone, or that you don’t want the traditional high-set stone?

I know what you mean about a functional ring though!  I am really rough on my jewelry as well as I do a lot of field work outside and have to wear gloves a lot, so no crazy high set ring for me!  : )

Here’s a couple from James Allen that are practical and not ultra flashy:

this is a faux tension setting that I actually have for a non-engagement ring, it is pretty awesome.

How about a bezel setting? They are a good option if you would like a lower profile setting and they offer more protection for the stone so are suitable if you have quite an active lifestyle… Here are a couple of examples, I hope this helps!

Edit: ooops that pcture upload didn’t work at all, sorry – here are links to the images instead:

and bezel set ring 2

 
Edit #2 – I just realised the previous poster to me wrote nearly the same thing, so sorry for repeating info as well.

This is the ring a friend of mine has.  She’s a vet and needs something that won’t get caught in gloves or scratch the animals she works with.

@misstiny:  People generally set solitaires high to let more light in under the stone, thus giving it more sparkle.  However, you can request a low set (that’s what I did).  If they do this then the base of the diamond (or whatever stone you go with) will barely just skim the band or the center of the prongs.  It won’t stick up high at all.  

This is an example of one that is low set:

as opposed to a similar set that is high:
