My diamond is set high and I like it that way.  Most people dont like it but I do. I like it because it is different then other rings and my band sits flush.  I cam always have it lowered If one day I decide I hate it.

I think a setting that high witha 1.4 ct will look tacky. Whenever I see a big gap between the bottom of the stone and the setting I think the designer was just trying to compensate for a small stone or too lazy to make the prongs fit the stone. Plus it’ll be very vulnerable to catching on things.

I have a question…if there is space between the bottom of the diamond and the setting, can a jeweler simply lower it in the same head/prongs or do they have to change out the whole thing?

legallyblondebarbie :  My diamond 1.26 ct.  It can be set lower at any time.  Mine is also just a head on a band so may be different.  My old head was low set and I felt like it always looked squatty and common.  I like the floating diamond look but that is me.  Honestly, no one in real life will ever question your diamond hieght.  Sometimes I have jewelers ask me why it is so high and I say I like it and that is all.
