aoife89 :  it sounds like you’d prefer a cathedral setting rather than a 4-stem. Yours had 4 prongs that all meet at one single point that attaches the stone to the band, whereas the cathedral setting brings the band up to meet the stone on either side

Like PP had mentioned, you are looking for cathedral setting. Due to the fact that you don’t wear a lot of jewelry, i would suggest that you wear it for a couple of weeks (if you haven’t already) and see if you feel the same way. It may just due to the fact that you’re not used to having anything on your finger. If you still feel the same way after, have the jeweler swap out the setting. Independent jewelers typically care a lot about their relationship with their customers rather than just trying to make a 1 time sale (think chain jewelry stores). Since your setting is a solitaire and not customized, it shouldn’t be a big issue exchanging for a different solitaire setting. It may cost a little more, but it shouldn’t be crazy amount of money. Some jewelers may even waive the remounting fee.

Looks like the setting you were looking for was a tapered cathedral setting. That would be the correct terminology to use if you decide to return to your jeweler or a different jeweler to change the setting. If you google “tapered cathedral setting”, there will be a bunch of ring pictures similar to what you were looking for. Hope that is helpful 🙂
