@FutureMrsT1221:  it looks like that is the bottom of the basket and the stone is supposed to sit in that. I’m wondering if they altered a wax that was too large for your centerstone? I don’t think theres anything wrong with it unless it seems like the stone isnt secure (which is hard to tell from the pics)

@bkrocks13:  I think it’s so the setting can accommodate large center stones. Your center stone looks big though so I don’t know if that’s what it is. Mine has that sort of anyway. I can’t imagine a stone going down that far though especially in my setting bc it’s so delicate. I don’t think u have anything to worry about.

@FutureMrsT1221:  I think it looks fine, and I wouldn’t worry about the stone falling out (unless the setting seems unstable).  Unless the look bothers you, I wouldn’t worry.

I tried on a ring that had a significant gap between the bottom of the diamond and the band. The jeweler explained that it was so that more light would pass through it making it look clearer and sparklier. It could be that that’s the intent 🙂

my ring is like that too. at first, it felt a bit odd but it grew on me. I agree that the gap allows more light to pass thru making the diamond sparlier.

Another reason to have it set high like that is to ensure that any wedding band can still sit flush to your e-ring. Just another idea… =^_^= 

Regardless of why, it’s a lovely ring!
