Awesome!!!! I like a more lower set stone too but the higher it is the more light and the more sparkle so they say

I remember reading all the hassles you had with your old ring. Yay for new! It’s beautiful.

I agree that I would prefer a lower set stone, but as the PP said, higher lets in more light for more sparklies. So there’s pros and cons for that decision.

Congrats, i can relate we had horrific issues with my ring after it was resized and our jeweler basically ruined the knifes edge detail my band had, 2 5 week stints with the designer in NY still didnt fix the problem and now have to have an entire new ring made from scratch (at yes a good discount) as well as they are making our weddings bands now at a much discounted price i am still waiting for my new ring to show up, so since being engaged in March ive only had my ring for just over 6 weeks between all the repairs resizing and being sent back and forth from MN to NY to try and fix it. The upside with my original ring they have agreed to melt it down and make it into my fiances wedding band so we will still have the original metal from the original engagement ring which is something really special to us.

I had my diamond reset a couple of months ago in a halo setting similar to yours but instead of diamonds down the band, my band is plain.

I don’t have a photo of mine from the side but I just looked closely at it and it looks like my diamond is set up about as high as yours is.  I personally don’t think it’s too high at all.

I don’t think it looks bad at all, but it will look much more complete once you pair up a wedding band with it.  From the looks of your setting, it looks like a band will sit flush next to the e-ring.  That’s how mine is – from the side it does look a bit strange because the setting is high, but with the band it looks right.

This is mine so you can see what I mean.

It’s stunning! I remember all the mess, what a lovely metaphor for the future ‘strong, stable and safe’, but also beautiful! Congrats 🙂

Gorgeous and I LOVE high settings so I would leave it as is.

It’s gorgeous! Mine is a high setting too and I love it. I thought for sure it’d be more likely to get caught on things but I’ve had no issues!

@MrsToB:  OMG – I am such a dork. I just reread your post and realized you were concerned about the *diamond* being set too high in the prongs, not the height of the entire ring!  I must have been tired when I read your post!  I didn’t mean to hijack your thread by posting my set – I misunderstood your original post.  Everyone was probably reading my response thinking “what on earth is that girl talking about?”

Glad you were able to get your diamond set lower like you wanted 🙂

Your ring is stunning! That high setting looks like mine!! Only nicer! I have never seen anyone with a high setting like that. I really hate mine and I don’t know what to do about it either.
