I am currently a waiting bee and have just initiated the process with My boyfriend of designing a custom ring After 8 years of dating. I have recently fell in love with the idea of a split shank and want it to sit high. My question is do you think this is a bit too high for everyday wear, I don’t have a labor extensive job and am not using my hands often.

I couldn’t tell you whether or not it’s too high for you, but it certainly isn’t too high for me. That ring is GORGEOUS!

It is gorgeous I am taken back every time I look at it. I was just a bit worried about how practical it was because I have never seen a real life halo that was that high (Even after stalking pricescope) . Thank you for the input peanut-sue

msaperry: Why not buy a costume ring that is the same height/style and wear it for awhile? That way you can get a feel for if you want to wear that style everyday. That is a gorgeous ring, but it also looks like a lot of money to invest in something you aren’t 100% sure about.

I think at the beginning, when you are not wearing your wedding bands it might look a little awkward. Mine is pretty high too but i wanted it to be like that so I had plentyof room to fit the band or bands without any type of gap. I designed mine thinking of the set as a whole, not thinking of having an awesome e-ring and then being stuck trying to find a wedding band that looks ok with it. Sure, it might look a bit awkward and high on its own but I’m hoping by going for that my wedding band options will be a little more open! 🙂
That ring is awesome. If you love it, get it. And remember since you are going custom, you can make it a tiny bit less tall.

I think one of the main reasons that ring is very high is because of the size of the stone. Is that the size you intend to have?<br />My stone is around 0.75ct and is quite low set, and I still sometimes knock it on things (not to mention snagging on clothes). A stone that big, with such a high setting would definitely be impractical IMO.

copperbird90: my stone will be a 2.5 round heirloom diamond, so no it won’t even be close to the size. The snagging is exactly what I worry about.
feel free to post pictures of your high settings.

Sporty-Bee: I never even considered that having a higher setting would be beneficial to my band eventually sitting flush. That’s the look I am going for, Even more excuse to just go for it!

That is a stunning ring! I have ring envy!
I have a split shank ring (only one ct though lol) with a halo and had it designed only just high enough to fit an eternity band underneath so it would sit flush. I still catch it on everything. Clothes, hair, handbag, face when brushing hair back, everything. No regrets though, it just makes me stop and stare at it again when I untangle it! Just make sure you have good insurance that includes accidental damage.

Beautiful choice! I have a split shank that sits pretty high and it has never really been a problem! I even wear gloves for work daily and they still fit perfectly. I’ve never had it snag on anything either and the center diamond is definitely not flush (I’m either very lucky or never notice!). The only annoying part is when little fibers/hairs get stuck on my prongs, but I’m sure that happens to every ring.
