    It’d be way too high for me.  I’m not a fan of all the space under the stone and I would be afraid of knocking it right off!

    Waaaay too high. It looks like your jeweller made a mistake and ordered the wrong size head.

    It almost looks like your diamond is just sitting on the prongs. I’d take it to the jeweler and have them shave it down.

    It’s funny I never thought about ring settings until I tried on wedding bands! Your ring is BEAUTIFUL, but I agree with PP it looks like it’s sitting so precariously on the prongs I’d be so nervous I’d knock it off! Here’s my setting, I’m biased but I think it sits up high perfectly without being too intrusive!

    It’s SO high, it looks like it’s in a stone holder! Have it reset and get an appraisal. I’d worry about trusting any jeweler that would send that out set that way.

    z6677 :  thanks! Yeah I think I would say something like that. Just to bring the stone down in the setting. My setting is a cathedral setting, but I believe that would change your setting if you had requested that. I would probably google pictures too and send them to show what you like. As for your fiancé I would just be honest! In theory, nothing’s changing aside from how high the diamond sits. The integrity of the ring will be the same :).

    I second that it looks like a ring holder.  Way, way too high.  You need to tell him to set it as low as possible in the basket.
