    My setting sits pretty high but I like it like that.  I’m super careful about hitting it and stuff.  However, I have insurance so if anything happens, it’ll be covered.

    My first engagement ring was very high set and after a year and a half of wearing it I had my stone reset. It kept ripping out my hair, scratching me, and banging on things. My current e-ring is probably 3mm shorter than my first e-ring, and I prefer it much more.

    My ring is set very high. I haven’t had any problems with it.

    @Booknerd:  funny you mention it because I thought I was the only one who noticed this. I have a weirdness about that. I’m still in the shopping phase, so I don’t have any pictures, but I’ve noticed that I’m not in love with settings that sit up high on my hand, even though i love the look in the case or on everyone else.

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  I really like the way your ring looks in the side profile! Very pretty!

    I had a promise ring from my Darling Husband from when I went off to college and it sat really high and I hated it! It was constantly scratching me and getting caught on my clothes and pulling out threads or seriously snagging it and ruining tops! 

    When we looked at E-rings I SPECIFICALLY told him that I didn’t want one that was set high because of all those reason. I am SO happy that the ring I have now is NOT set high, it doesn’t snag on anything!

    Even if your setting is high, you get used to it, like it becomes a part of your finger and you automatically start to ninja it around every obstacle.

    Sounds crazy, but it’s true!

    I have a cathedral-mount, and it sits fairly high off of my finger. I’ve been wearing it for four-and-a-half years, and I’ve really had no problems with it. I recently hit it on something the other day, and I was so surprised, because it was such a rare occurrance.

    I’m also someone who doesn’t like the high set rings, even though they make stacking convenient. I have to custom make my band to fit with my low set ering. I tried some high set ones and I just hated the look on my hand!

    My stone is on the larger size, and therefore sits fairly high. I haven’t had issues with it catching on anything.  My main problem is just my paranoia 🙂 I’m always worried im gonna bend the prong on something and lose my rock in one foul swoop!

    My stone is set fairly high but as it is a bezel set it is fully covered( not held by prongs that can catch on things)

    If it wasn’t bezel set I think it would really bother me but I like how durable it is.

    Mine’s pretty high set. I don’t hit it on much of anything anymore.

    When I first tried my ring on in the store when we were shopping I was really worried that it was going to be too high. I asked the lady about getting it lowered and she said that it was a possibility. After wearing it for a few weeks I was used to it. To be honest I’ve never scratched myself or anyone else for that matter. I have also never caught it on anything. I have banged it a few times, but that would have happened with almost any ring.


    The only time I realize that I have a high setting (unless someone else is pointing it out, or asking about it) is when I put on gloves at work, which I don’t do too often, but probably will in the future, at that time I may consider a different (everyday) ring.
