Never had any issues and mine is “average.” A slight difference in how high it is doesn’t seem to mean anything.

@avonleaR:  I think mine is pretty “average” and mine does but I work in a profession where I’m putting on and taking off medical gloves all day so it gets in the way with that….otherwise I can’t think of any other time I’m frustrated with it getting stuck.

I’ve had to get used to my ring — I do wack it against things without thinking, but that’s why diamonds are so great for rings given their hardness. It doesn’t get in the way and it won’t break, so don’t worry!

Nope, never had a problem.

My original Engagement Ring that Fiance gave me had a pretty raised center stone. So much that we wound up getting me another ring (more my style and I can actually wear it) because it  was catching on everything and was just too much of a pain. I’m getting the stone turned into a pendant and the ring is becoming a right hand ring. 🙂

Mine is a solitaire for all intents and purposes and it has never gotten in my way and the entire diamond is well elevated about the band.

The first few weeks, I was banging it on stuff everywhere – I actually managed to hit it hard enough to loosen my stone sp much that I needed my prongs to be tightened within the first week.


That being said, three months later and I rarely whack it on anything anymore, and I’m a huge klutz with notoriously bad coordination.

I have a very low setting and I still wack it on things, it gets caught on sweaters. Its especially difficult to wear winter gloves which is a real necessity here in Cleveland!

Mine is pretty high and it doesn’t get in the way once you get used to it. I’m left-handed so that makes me even more likely to whack it on things.

I got asked that question quite a bit when I first got my e-ring, but surprisingly I never had a real problem with hitting things with it or scratching myself or others.

You might hit it on things when you first get it, because it does take some getting used to. But after a while, the ring becomes part of your hand and you adjust so you don’t hit things anymore.  Then one day, you’ll see a post like yours on WB, and you tell her that it’s no big deal and that you don’t even think about it any more.  🙂

My setting is 8mm high and i love love love it! But I had the same concern as you. I just got my ring a little over a week ago and I’m trying to be very careful with it but I do feel like i’m whacking it too often. I really do hope everyone is right and that I’ll get used to it. I really don’t want to change the setting as Fiance custom designed it himself and it’s perfect!
