Are you getting your rings soldered? That will make them sit as close to flush as possible.

I would definitely discuss your concerns. My e-ring has a lifetime guarantee too & I haven’t hesitated voicing my wants & needs… He bought it! πŸ™‚ I had my prongs made more narrow because I felt they were too thick. Go after what you want. πŸ™‚

Oh, I’m not sure about the donut shaped thing at the bottom. It looks like it extends beyond the actual shank (horizontally) Am I right?

I am not a jeweller, but I “think” the entire basket can be replaced, which would allow the ring to sit flush.It looks like it’s two pieces, which simply means the jeweller needs to pop out the current head and replace it will a taller one.

Unless, of course, the donut shaped thing on the bottom extends outwards and is an intergral part of the design. Then it would have to be shaved down. 

Another option would be to buy a matching band with a curve in it, so it absolutely (positively) sits flush.

I would NOT trust shaving the donut down. The donut is there to provide extra support (in case you were to hit your hand on something or someone was to knock into  you or whatever – the entire stone – prongs and all could just detach. Shaving it down would be messing with the integrity of the setting. If I were you I would just change the setting entirely or leave it be.

can you post a picture of the head from the top or directly from the side?  It’s hard to tell. Offhand, I would say it’s not a problem.

@WhatMaeBee:  Can you at least get a second opinion ? I see you are on LI – can you visit Good old gold? Your jeweler could very well be right since your ring DOES look sturdy (the setting has a good amount of gold in it) but I’d still want another opinion! Good luck – pretty ring btw!!

@soy:  I was just going to suggest Good Old Gold too! That’s where I get all of my jewelry and my FH got my engagement ring there. They are usually very honest about stuff like that.

yea, I don’t know if I would shave it down. It might compromise the setting and you don’t want your diamond popping out. I would definitely go to a second jeweler to get a second opinion.
