Hello all! I just recently upgraded my center stone with a 1ct Leo diamond..I got my ring back and I think that it may be set too high up, but the lady who helped me said she thought it looked brilliant the way it was..so, should I get the center stone lowered another 2mm or keep it the way it is? What I had before was 4 small center stones, and they were just barely above the halo. I know it is essentially up to me, but I would like feedback if it looks normal or if it is just set too high above the rest of the ring. Thanks for any input!

It is rather high, but it looks really good. Unless it is causing you trouble or you just really don’t like it, I think keeping it as is would be nice.

It’s high but if you ever get in a scrap you’ve got a kickass weapon! I would recommend wearing it in a bit and seeing how you go. If you find it’s too *out there* then alter it. Otherwise it looks lovely on you.

I love high settings. They allow so much light to enter the diamond. However, with a halo, I like it just a little lower. I think yours is fine though. Congrats on your upgrade! It’s beautiful!

Did you ask if it could be lowered? Depending on the setting and the diamond itself it may not be able to go any lower then that. That’s the issue I have with my e-ring…the diamond is cut deep, so it sits high and they can’t lower it anymore…with the setting I have.
Your ring is beautiful though!

I think you may just need to get used to it. It is really beautiful and stunning the way it is. I had the prongs on my set retipped and it made it look like they had raised the whole thing. They didn’t but after I wore it for awhile I got used to it. It just looked so different all clean and sparkly that it tripped me up a bit.
I have a new set now and it is higher and someone just told me this week that the diamond looks like it is floating above my hand and that it looks really cool that way. I had never thought about that. So, I would wear it for a while and see if you get used to it.

@Willow08: Personally I would get it lowered, but if higher up fits your lifestyle then there’s no reason to change it. Beautiful ring!

I adore high settings that showcase the blingy 1ct diamond. But this is just me and my own bias preference. If the height is uncomfortable, you should shorten it to suit your lifestyle. If it’s not too much and you can get use to it, then leave as is.
Have to say tho, your ering is absolutely STUNNING This style of thicker band is not for everyone but I personally love wider bands. I have large man like fingers so a very thin band gets lost on my finger. I’d love to have your setting and if I came across something similar would jump to grab it.

thank you all for your opinions..believe it or not, it helps to get others input! I think I will wear it as is for awhile, and see if I get used to it, although as of now, I think it should be lowered, however, it will take light away 🙁 I can get it lowered about 2mm they thought, or maybe more if I switched prong settings.

I would lower it. I think it would look better and get caught on less stuff.

@Willow08: i think it looks a bit high. still very pretty though. i would be afraid of hitting the head of it and damaging it. i would lower it if it was me but you are the one wearing it.
