I keep posting so many e-ring threads, but I just want to make sure I end up with what I truly want. So my new “problem” is something I NEVER, EVER noticed before yesterday..how high/low the head is set in the bridge. Let me explain through pictures..
^The head set “low” in the bridge^
^roughly set in the middle of the bridge^ (This is actually the ring I want!)
^set high on the bridge^
Just to give you an idea of what I’m hoping to get: It’s the eng144 from moissaniteco (and actually the ring MsPanda has!)
The ring specs I’m going for are as follows:
Center Stone: 2CT equivalent Mira Moissanite
Metal Type: Palladium
Prong Style: 6 Prongs
(and then the options of lowering the head and hopefully extending the semi eternity!)
I emailed Chris and he said the head could be lowered in the bridge for no charge, and I’m actually in the process on fiding out how much it would cost to make the 1/2 eternity band into a 3/4 one!
I’m pretty set on having the head set low in the bridge, just because I like how it looks better. However, I’m wondering if any of you all have any ideas/reasons on which one would look best (and be most functional for that matter)..I’m open to all opinions here! I’m wondering specifically if the 2CT would look weird or too big set that low? Help!
Bees, thank you so much for reading and commenting! It really is a huge help and I appreciate it so much! 🙂

I like the middle also, although I couldn’t tell you why exactly! haha

I had to look at the pictures like 5 times to figure out the difference. I think the middle one looks good, my ring is set high, but the side stones branch off from the band and meet the diamond just below the prongs. I think as long as it looks balanced, you’ll be fine.

I think that setting it lower would look great! and was something I actualy looked into too but changed my mind about it and got it how it comes. and about extending the semi eternity I personaly wouldnt do that because of the miligrain work. (I dont think it would be comfy on the finger) In My Humble Opinion atleast…

@MsPanda:yeah I would guess if you extended it then it would rub your other finger the wrong way and hurt a bit. my only question would be does it sitting higer or lower really do anything? like make it stronger or not. whatever you do its a very pretty ring 🙂

@MsPanda: I’m not going to extend it just because you said that! Hadn’t even thought about the possibility of that happening! It’s just so hard to pick something..especially when it’s online!
@miss sparkly cat: I can only assume that lowering it in the bridge would (possibly) keep me from banging it up as much as a high set stone. I have no idea though..which is why I’m so happy to have found WB!

@miss sparkly cat: & @SecretBee23: Setting it lower might be a good idea I scratch Fi with my ring ATLEAST once a week lol…

@MsPanda: I use my high set ring as a weapon when Mr. Roux pins me when we wrestle, lol. 😛

Will setting it lower effect the types of wedding bands you can wear next to it? I feel like if it’s set lower, it will start to “stick out” lower down, so maybe it won’t be eas easy to get a band to sit flush?

Are you concened that your band sit flush against your ering? because if you lower it… it doesn’t look like it will…

Mine is set this way, which I guess would be medium-high and the band that matches sits flush. I looks like if you go with the low set, a band will not sit flush if that’s a concern for you. I honestly don’t think I would pay the exra money to have it set lower if you want the middle one.

The only downside I could imagine is if a gap between the ering and wedding band bothers you. If it does, I would go for high on the bridge. I personally don’t mind a gap, and I find myself smacking my hands into things pretty often, so a super high set ring would not be good for me. They all look wonderful though!
