    To me it’s a little high because I would worry about knocking it on things. It’s beautiful though.

    Totally a style preference. I personally love tall rings, but just like FutureMrsBex, some people don’t like it because of knocking/catching onto things, which is totally understandable. It is a beautiful setting. Really matters what her style is!

    That would not last a week on my hand. But if your SO is super delicate, and never uses her hands for anything more than waving lightly through the air, it might be ok? For maybe a month or so until someone brushes her hand and the whole head breaks off and goes rolling into a storm drain…

    What a lovely ring! That diamond is beautiful. How many carats? 

    It may feel tall at first. Wearing it, in general, will take some getting used to.

    Because your stone is large, I’d ask for a lower prong set, like no space under the point.


    That is how mine is set. Keep in mind the larger the stone, the deeper it is, so it can only be so shallow in a prong setting. Otherwise you’d have to go for a cathedral setting. 


    Pic of mine for reference. Even set as low as possible, it will still stick out alot. Mine is 1.5 carat on a 5 ring.

    That would be too high for me–I’d be snagging and scratching and bumping and worried about knocking the head off the ring.

    Way too tall and looks insecure. The head could easily break off and you could lose the diamond. The prongs look wonky too.

    It looks like it’s leaning to the left in the first pic. It also looks like the peg head is too small for the stone and they tried to shove it in there anyway.

    It’s beautiful, but the setting looks too delicate/thin for the size of the stone. I’d be very concerned about breaking the head off of the mounting.

    I like tall rings, so the height doesn’t concern me. But the head looks pretty unstable. It looks like you could snap it off.

    while it’s a very tall ring, I’m more concerned with the craftsmanship: it looks like the prongs are not straight, and the tips all vary in size and placement – please see the image I’ve attached.

    The ring deign is very delicate – and it is possible for the head of the ring to snap off with enough pressure as well. I would make sure you have insurance on this ring, in case the main stone becomes lost.

    It’s a gorgeous ring, but too tall for regular wear. Also the prongs look kinda wonky.

    It’s a very pretty ring but it is too tall in my opinion.
