my dad’s friend is a jeweler and I take photos for him.  A couple got married yesterday and she had her ring polished this week so I took pics.  I never saw an emerald cut in a legacy mounting before, but it looks really pretty and the diamonds are not large at all but its illusionary.

 

 

it sits even higher than yours I believe, but because of where the basket is for the halo, it doesn’t stand alone.

One thing that concerns me on your set is that the 4 prongs aren’t attached to a basket.  I know that a basket would make it even higher, but it also helps keep the prongs from bending backwards or loosening around the diamond over time.  

Have you and your Fiance talked about the possible issues with the head of the engagement ring?…maybe that can be adjusted to help.

usually if a customer requests low setting, the jeweler should saw where the basket currently is, shaving both sides into a point, and solder the head groves and the two knife pointed shank sides into the center again, lowering it about 1.2mm or so.  that is normal.  here’s an example of what it looks like after they lower from a peg head on top of the mounting into the mounting itself:

it’s a beautiful stone. 

are you looking at resetting it lower?  is that what you are asking?

I definately see the issue with the engraving, and in that case the two diamonds closest to the head would need to be temporarily removed from the prong so no torchwork would bother it, but your engraver may have advice on whether they can design somethign in the center once its all adjusted where it would look seamless, but that’s all questions you’d have to ask your jeweler if they are willing to try it.
