After wearing my cushion diamond solitaire for a few years, I just had it reset in a halo setting. I wanted to focus attention on the center stone and not have my halo detract from my diamond. I love the chunky/cocktail look of the larger halo stones & we discussed having the stone set up higher, but I guess I did not know HOW high it would be set?? There is only a slight gap noticeable from the sides, but I’m going to check with my jeweler to see if they can set it a bit lower. Not flush, but maybe just to eliminate the gap?
Just wanted other opinions, as my husband gets tired of me being SO picky, ha ha

I don’t see the gap you are referring to. Personally I like when the diamond sits above the halo, and I don’t think yours is super high or anything. But if it bugs you, see what the jeweler can do!

GucciGirl13: I love that ring!!!! Beautiful! I had a ruby halo recently and didn’t like my stone being that high. So now I’m getting a new setting made. I think it’s up to you on what you prefer. The ring looks beautiful, but I know with me I didn’t want mine set high..

GucciGirl13: your ring is beautiful.
I love the way it is set. My centerstone sits above the halo similar to yours and I love it because it really lets the light in and optimizes the sparkle.

I love your ring! I don’t think it’s set too high at all and I don’t see a gap. But if you want it lowered a little bit I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem.

GucciGirl13: I have a cushion cut diamond with a pave (smaller) halo and my stone is set pretty high. I initially thought it would bother me a lot and catch on a lot of things, but after wearing it for over a year, it’s a non-issue.

It does look a little high, but the jeweler may be able to set it lower. If they can’t, it’s still beautiful.

I have a cushion cut with a small halo and a petite band e-ring. I personally made sure my Fiance knew before he got my ring that I preferred the diamond to sit relatively flush with the setting (not to stick up too high) since I have a more dainty setting. I feel the overall look of the ring flows smoother from the side profile…if that makes sense?
Your ring is gorgeous nonetheless and I don’t see the gap you are referring to! If it doesn’t bother you much, keep it! 🙂

Thank you everyone for your comments! I am going to stop by the jewelers tomorrow to see what they say. I didn’t get a good pic of the “space”, so I’ll try to post one.

It looks good. Sometimes the diamond gets lost in a halo setting when it’s too low. The focus is more on your diamond and less on the halo the way you have it set.

By gap do you mean airline? The stone doesn’t look too high to me, it’s much like my ring which is a halo. If it’s set too deep it may affect the light/sparkle.

It looks beautiful….however, I did have mine set lower to my finger because the height bothered me as well!!

I can’t vote in your poll, but I love the way it is set. I agree with doberman: , setting it lower may affect the light and sparkle.

My ring is very similar to yours, and my diamond is set at a similar height. I feel like it reflects more light because of this. I love it!
Sorry for the awful pic quality, but I think you get the idea of the height at least!

It doesn’t look too high to me but it is all about what you’re wanting. It wouldn’t hurt to ask a jeweler his opinion.
Here is a pic of mine for height reference.
