One of the things I really like about my ring is that it’s fairly low.

Mine sits kind of high off my finger but is low in the ring itself, which I like. i never catch it on things!

Most people would consider my ring higher profile, as it is a cathedral setting, but the shoulders sloping away from the stone make it feel less so. But I wanted a cathedral setting for two reasons. First, I like to be able to see the stone, and for the setting to allow in as much light as possible. Second, a cathedral setting makes it much easier to have a wedding band sit flush with the diamond. Often (though not always) when a stone is set lower the prongs begin flaring out of the band itself, making any straight band leave a gap. A gap doesn’t especially bother me, either, but a cathedral setting met all of my requirements.

My “basket” (?) is medium height (the setting itself) but the diamond is low set in the setting. But, there is a large space between the bottom tip of the diamond and my skin:

I was unsure about my setting at first… I loved the top of the ring I just wished it was…flatter. Anyways, it’s really grown on me ovetime, and now I think it looks kind of regal or crown-like. What do y’all think?

I can’t stand high profile rings, when it’s time I’m sure I will be searching for something super low. 

 

ETA: whoops, sorry, didn’t notice this was such an old thread!

Mine sits pretty low & I love it that way. It’s perfect for daily wear & putting gloves on/off all day long (nursing career).

Mine sits pretty high, I was initially worried about it since I never wear jewelry but I got used to it super fast and I haven’t snagged it on anything yet!!

Future Mrs K our rings are similar. What wedding band did you go with?

Sorry for the Instagram-esque picture. Mine sits pretty high being large stoned solitaire. I rarely bang it around now that I am used to it. 🙂
