    My ring is set very similarly and I love it. The only thing is the diamond does get dirty quicker so if you want it to sparkle cleaning is a must. I do not think it takes away from the vintage look at all!

    Here’s what mine looks like if that helps…

    @MrsElopement:  Ever get pasta sauce stuck in there?  I have!  lol

    I also have a similarly set ring.  I love it because, while the setting is intricate, the diamond is still the star of the show. 

    Some people prefer the high set diamond, and others like it to sit more flush with the halo – it is really up to you!  This is mine:

    I think it’s a lovely ring, but I do think it sits too high. It has an awkward look that way, but that’s just one girl’s opinion. It’s your ring and you’ll be stuck with it so if it bugs you I think you should get it reset.

    High settings are a pain for me to wear, so I would totally have the lowest setting possible.  As far as the concern about the vintage feel–high settings were very popular back in the day.  If you had a high setting then it meant that you did less menial work so you must have been richer.  

    Style is not about fashion–it’s about wearing what you like and what suits you.  If you don’t like how the high setting looks, get it lowered.
