It doesn’t look silly to me, it looks just fine. Seems like a pretty traditional setting. That said for me it would be too high set. But I am a total accident prone person who is known for getting high set rings caught on things all the time! So I had to have a lower set ring. But that is more for my everyday comfort of wearing the ring. If the high setting doesn’t get in the way of anything you’re doing, then I think it’s great!

@MsKaren:  i think it looks like a very traditional setting.  it you don’t work with your hands too much, i think you should be fine.  some people find this setting to be a nuisance and hit the head too much.  you may do that at first if you are not used to the height.

I don’t think it’s high because the base is flush with your band.  My setting is also from BN and it looks similar to yours.  Since having the setting high makes it easier to find wedding bands, I would try it with a few wedding bands.

I don’t think it looks high at all…in fact, I would almost say it’s a low setting. If you’re used to it being lower then that…you will get used to it after wearing it a while. My e-ring sits up WAY higher then yours.

I think it looks really pretty….can we see a top view?

@MsKaren:  I think it looks great. You probably just need to get used to it.

Looks like mine!

Mine was recently reset from a lower setting and it has taken a little getting used to….but I like it!

@MsKaren:  It looks high for my taste, but I agree that it is a classic cathedral setting. Isn’t that what you were going for?

@MsKaren:  I do not think it looks silly at all! Maybe you just need to get used to the high setting? I think it is a beautiful ring, and you said your diamond is 0.9 so not massive, it is not about the size of the ring, it is about the meaning! I see everyone on here knows the specs of their ring I have no idea what mine is lol I could care less it is what my FI picked out and could afford and I think it is perfect!

@MsKaren:  I don’t think it’s high at all. It looks like it should be that way! I think the profile looks perfect. That’s a classic, timeless setting…can’t ever go wrong with a solitaire in my opinion. 🙂
