Ii don’t see how you could change the prongs to make it lower set, I think you’d need a new ring

You can defintely swap out the head of your ring for a more delicate one, and you can have the jeweler mount the head down into the band instead of on top of the band like it is now.  I would say this would cost a couple hundred dollars.  you could save money if you keep the head you have now and just have the prongs shaved down to be more delicate looking; however, that head fits your diamond nicely.

If your ring has a peg head (which it looks like it might), then a jeweler should be able to do it By swapping in a new head.

@Purple_Bride:  Yes, you can!  I have changed several different prongs on my rings!  Let’s see if I can describe this and have it make sense.  On my original ring, the head looked exactly like yours.  I had the jeweler open up the shank and drop the head down into it, so the center stone sat a little lower.  It was still a little too high for me, but much lower than it had been.  Here’s the after:

Then on my new anniversary ring, I had the prongs slimmed down to eliminate my gap, and I actually just picked it up from the jeweler yesterday!  I love it.  If you are looking for a smaller gap, you could do the exact same thing to yours by slimming down the 4 vertical prongs along your shank.

I went from a low set 4 prong to a bezel.  I did it because I wanted to be able to see the center diamond separately from the halo.  It all kind of blended together and I didn’t like that. I even tried adding blue sapphires to the sides to help separate it.  It was very pretty, but I didn’t want colored stones on my ring. The bezel accomplished what I wanted and an added bonus is that it made my center diamond look bigger 🙂 (sorry, my ring is dirty right now)
