    I voted to lower it because I think it looks better on bands with a halo setting.

    oh my gosh! your ring is gorgeous!!!! its rough being a klutz sometimes (i know from ALOT of experience! lol!) i honestly say leave it the way it is. i think it might lose something if you have it reset.

    I think you should leave it. It won’t be “your” ring if you change it. It will be something totally different, and in my opinion not as unique. Right now, it doesn’t look like everyone elses. My ring sits high and I do occasionally bang it on something, but not often enough to worry about. If you take your ring in to the jeweler every once in awhile, they can check the setting for you and tighten the prongs, if needed.

    I’m torn. I was going to say that I like it the way it is. You’re right that prongs make it much more sparkly. But then I thought that it would look really nice lowered and bezel set.

    In other words, I don’t know. Go with your gut. I love the way the bezel set halo rings look. But I think yours is great because it is unique and I’m sure the setting is more flattering to the stone.

    Wish I could be more helpful. I guess my answer is “you can’t go wrong either way.”

    As long as the stone is well cut, it won’t make much of a difference if it’s set high or low. It looks like they would be able to set it right in without complications. Whatever you’re comfortable with. 🙂

    I voted to keep it the same just because it’s already beautiful and so unique. But I do think that it would look good if you lowered it, too. I wouldn’t worry about chipping the stone (it’s a diamond, right?) but I can see how you’d be a little uneasy about the prongs coming loose and stuff.

    P.S. I also love Elliott Smith. Waltz #2 is my fave.

    I would lower it.  My solitaire sits higher than I would like and I too knock it around.  Because it’s a super simple setting (just knife-edge tapered WG) I may get it changed later but want to see what sort of wedding abnd I end up with first. 

    I think your ring is lovely the way it is, but I know how frustrating a high set diamond can be.

    There is another Bee who had a similar raised center stone and had it lowered, then wasn’t sure she liked it. I’ll see if I can find that thread.

    I voted on leave it.. I think it looks great the way it is and it wont feel like your ring after you lower it. My FSIL lowered hers and now she complains all the time that she wants it just the way it was.. So i hope that the same thing wont happen to you

    Honestly i would leave it alone if your used to it. and it looks very pretty the way it is. if you were to change it and the change your mind again you might have an issue of damaging the ring by doing to much work on it. not likley maybe but maybe your jeweler can show you one like it 🙂 so you can see what it looks like before they work on your actual ring but do what feels right its your ring and you have to wear it 🙂 its lovley anyway you would were it.

    I voted to lower it, mostly bc I’m completely obsessed with bezel set halos! Plus, I understand your concern about knocking it around, my setting’s not super-high but it’s high enough that I do the same thing and I hate it!

    Personally I much prefer stones in a very low setting, so I voted “lower it”
