    @dulcevida:  I would think it is so that a wedding band can sit flush with the ring. Mine is set pretty high, but my plain band still has a bit of a gap.  It’s mostly hidden by the halo itself, so it doesn’t bother me too much.

    My ring is like this. It allows my wedding bed to sit flush with my ring and I love it! Personally, I didn’t want a gap, so this worked realy well for me.

    @dulcevida:  From personal experience,  the halo that sits up high will allow more options for a stock wedding band,  but the one in the second pic will require a curve band because the basket sits snug on the finger. Depending on high the ring sits up in the second pic, even with a curved band it can look lost next to the ering. That’s the problem FI and I encountered during our month (+) long search for a  curved wedding band.  Finally, we gave up and decided to go with a custom band.

    Mine is raised and the band fits pretty well together

    Mine is raised. We just got my band in and it did sort of under the bridge. I don’t have any pictures of it because my FI his it somewhere in the house so I won’t walk around wedding it before our actual wedding. Here’s a pic just to show you how it sits.

    @dulcevida:  I have a raised halo engagement ring, and the matching wedding band (which is also slightly curved) sits flush against it. I’ve also heard suggestions that the raised settings allow a bit more light in, which makes your diamond sparkle even more. Not sure if that’s a significant effect or not, but I can see how it might be true!

    i feel like mine is to raise the halo higher and the bridge is for the round shank, make sense?

    @dulcevida:  Mine is raised so there is no gap with the band 🙂

    At the same time, I had it designed to be as low profile as possible while still allowing the bands to sit flush.
