I think it comes down to personal taste, some people will think that is perfect. For me it would be far too high, I would bash that against things every time I moved.

I actually love that, it makes your center stone pop.

It looks like they took the path of least resistance and stuck a head in the center of the halo. Did they discuss how they were going to mount your stone in the ring? I would not have expected that.

I personally like the height but it’s really up to what you like.  If it’s too high for you, then you’ll never like it.  I have a high set ring and love having it that high.

it’s up to you completely. If you like it, then it’s not too high. It would be too high for me but I specifically prefer low settings. If you like it and don’t whack it all the time off stuff, keep it as is!

It is set way too high for my taste.  Not only from a practicality standpoint (I could see it taking quite a beating and getting knocked around a lot being that high), but the setting just looks disjointed and not fluid in the profile views.

Too high for my taste. But delicate flower I am not. That looks like an injury waiting to happen.

Although I prefer high settings I find this too high to be honest.. but again if it didn’t bother you I wouldn’t have thought about it!

Personally, I do not like when the center stone sits higher than the halo. I like it flush.
