Re- Setting a ring, but with the same band?

Hi and congratulations in advance. I would think a whole new head (prongs) would need to be put on. Or perhaps a skilled jeweler could cut and polish the existing ones shorter so the moissy sits lower. But I also have read that Australian jewelers are very expensive for repairs. Can you perhaps request the vendor set the stone super low on this setting?

You can ask moissaniteco to set the stone lower and make the profile of the ring sure they can do this for the second ring you posted out of your budget?

I’m in the US, so may not have very helpful advice, but…

Would it not be less expensive to purchase the setting you like (#2) locally, and just purchase a loose stone from Moissantco?  You could deliver the purchased stone to the dealer providing your semi-mount, and have it set locally.

Moissaniteco custom makes rings. If you contact them, they can set it in a head like that. And it should be close to the same price. Email them and ask! They are very reasonably priced.

Congratulations! FWIW I like the lower set prongs on the 2nd. Contact customer service from what I hear on the Bee they do very good custom work. Otherwise a jeweler should be able to switch out the prongs easily.
