snwsnw:  I’m totally no help with how high the halo should sit, as I have no experience at all with this style of ring.

But (!!) I had to post to say how pretty your ring is. I love the rose gold against the diamonds on the halo and shank. And the profile is so pretty. It’s such a beautiful and delicate ring, and it looks amazing on your finger. Congrats! I hope you’ll post pictures once your sapphire is set. It’s going to be gorgeous!

Mine isnt round, but it does sit up higher. I love it! I feel like it gives more substance to the center stone making it look and feel larger then if it was set closer to the finger. I love it, and yours is gorgeous!

I have a round halo, and it sits fairly low. I didn’t want a ring that sat so high up that it might get caught on things easily, or when placed into things like pockets.

Very pretty ring!

snwsnw:  Love your setting! Your sapphire is going to be amazing in it!!!!

My center stone is set above the halo as well and I love it because it really lets the light through it. Mine however is not set as high as yours. I would consider having it set just slightly lower to protect the stone. You don’t want to chip, crack, scratch or snag your sapphire or the prongs on anything. The setting itself is already high, so the stone can definitely be lowered a bit.

For example, the girdle of my stone sits just above the halo and I feel it is secure and doesn’t get caught on things.

snwsnw:  Mine is like yours, I used to catch it on stuff when I first got it (mainly when putting my hand in my pocket) but now that I’m aware that it catches I know to be careful and don’t have a problem.

I’m usually a lurker, but I had to post.  I have a setting very similar to yours, only mine is platinum.  I had asked them to lower the prongs when I first tried on the ring in the store.  However, when it arrived, I noticed that they hadn’t done so.  After wearing it for a while, I notice that it doesn’t bother me too much, and doesn’t get caught on things as much as I thought it would.

snwsnw:  Have you already picked out your sapphire? Something to note is that most sapphires are cut slightly deeper than diamonds to show off the color intensity. Having it set lower may not be best for your choice of stone because it’ll hinder the multi-facets of the sapphire color. I learned this when I picked out my sapphire. It’s set SUUUUPER high because it’s so deeply cut. I don’t get it caught on stuff or bang it on things because I’ve become more self aware. Beautiful ring, btw!
