So, Nerd and I got to go look at rings today for the first time! Eeekk!!!! I freaked out when he said we could go. But I was cool about it. What I found the weirdest thing though was that some settings seemed to be too high from my finger. Has anyone else experienced this? Could some of you share your photos of high setting rings after some wearing time? Anyone else experience the feeling of the main stone being too high off the band and get worried about it getting ruined after time?
Thanks for any input ladies!

My setting sits pretty high but I like it like that. I’m super careful about hitting it and stuff. However, I have insurance so if anything happens, it’ll be covered.

My first engagement ring was very high set and after a year and a half of wearing it I had my stone reset. It kept ripping out my hair, scratching me, and banging on things. My current e-ring is probably 3mm shorter than my first e-ring, and I prefer it much more.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: That’s really pretty and similar to what I think I want! Thanks for the photo!
@6598731ssfse3: Yikes! So do not want that to happen!

My ring is set very high. I haven’t had any problems with it.

@Booknerd: funny you mention it because I thought I was the only one who noticed this. I have a weirdness about that. I’m still in the shopping phase, so I don’t have any pictures, but I’ve noticed that I’m not in love with settings that sit up high on my hand, even though i love the look in the case or on everyone else.
@heathuhhhhwebbbb: I really like the way your ring looks in the side profile! Very pretty!

I had a promise ring from my DH from when I went off to college and it sat really high and I hated it! It was constantly scratching me and getting caught on my clothes and pulling out threads or seriously snagging it and ruining tops!
When we looked at E-rings I SPECIFICALLY told him that I didn’t want one that was set high because of all those reason. I am SO happy that the ring I have now is NOT set high, it doesn’t snag on anything!

Even if your setting is high, you get used to it, like it becomes a part of your finger and you automatically start to ninja it around every obstacle.
Sounds crazy, but it’s true!

I have a cathedral-mount, and it sits fairly high off of my finger. I’ve been wearing it for four-and-a-half years, and I’ve really had no problems with it. I recently hit it on something the other day, and I was so surprised, because it was such a rare occurrance.

I’m also someone who doesn’t like the high set rings, even though they make stacking convenient. I have to custom make my band to fit with my low set ering. I tried some high set ones and I just hated the look on my hand!

My stone is on the larger size, and therefore sits fairly high. I haven’t had issues with it catching on anything. My main problem is just my paranoia 🙂 I’m always worried im gonna bend the prong on something and lose my rock in one foul swoop!

My stone is set fairly high but as it is a bezel set it is fully covered( not held by prongs that can catch on things)
If it wasn’t bezel set I think it would really bother me but I like how durable it is.

Mine’s pretty high set. I don’t hit it on much of anything anymore.

When I first tried my ring on in the store when we were shopping I was really worried that it was going to be too high. I asked the lady about getting it lowered and she said that it was a possibility. After wearing it for a few weeks I was used to it. To be honest I’ve never scratched myself or anyone else for that matter. I have also never caught it on anything. I have banged it a few times, but that would have happened with almost any ring.
The only time I realize that I have a high setting (unless someone else is pointing it out, or asking about it) is when I put on gloves at work, which I don’t do too often, but probably will in the future, at that time I may consider a different (everyday) ring.

@cochinealred: See now that might not bother me as much.
@mepayne: Oh wow! That is HIGH! At least for me. But it’s a very pretty ring!
