Is my diamond set too high?

Oops, I forgot to comment this as well. I also want to add that I don’t think your prongs are insecure, and prongs don’t have to sit flat against the stone, like a peghead setting. Mine are designed that way too, where they curve and meet the crown of my stone. If it makes you a anxious though, I think it’s okay to ask another jeweler about the integrity of the prongs.

 

Hard to see because of table, but I have those tiny triangle gaps as well around my stone.

It is a cathedral setting. They generally will set pretty high up. The side support of the setting does help keep the setting secure. The benefit of a cathedral setting is that your band will sit flush alongside your e-ring. If you don’t love it, get it reset. If you want a low profile setting, try a basket setting. 

 

When I first got engaged, almost 20 years ago, my husband got me a platinum engagement ring, I wanted yellow gold. He had it reset after he proposed. It was worth it to have what I wanted. Ironically, I now wear a platinum anniversary band, lol.

Gorgeous ring! It looks like it has to be that high because the culet of the diamond comes down so far. They could probably go a TAD lower, but I personally wouldn’t bother with it. It looks great as is.

Just here to say my diamond sits up just a tinnnnyyyy bit higher than yours and I am also super clumsy and I’ve had it for two months and I’ve been fine!!! When I got it I also thought it seemed to sit higher up than I remembered!

@Kare.xo:  I had the same concerns you did! But the fear wears off. I didn’t believe anyone when they told me that but they were right!
