Personally, a high set ring would never work for me. Because I wear my rings all the time. But my SIL, her ring is set really high (I think) and she said she has just gotten used to it. It may feel weird at first, but you will likely adjust. Congratulations on finding your ring!

I love my high set ring! It’s feels so classic I guess.  I work in an office and only take it off when I clean the house. I sleep with it on, shower Work out.  I say of you love the ring it will be so worth it!

I love the look of my ring and after getting used to it I rarely snag it/bump it on anything.

That said, I’m having difficulty finding a wedding band that I like to go with it? The curved bands they make for solitaires look weird because my stone is set so high it doesnt “fit” right and looks like just a random space, and same goes for ring guards. Thats probably my only complaint

My ring is what’s considered a “low setting” but I’ve actually found that it’s plenty high for me — I don’t go banging it on everything, but I’m definitely conscious of the height when I’m putting clothes on or dealing with tight spaces for my hands, like when fastening my seatbelt. I don’t know that I’d personally want it much higher, although I agree with PPs that it’s probably something you can get used to with time.

I have a cathedral setting, which is quite high. Interestingly, though, it doesn’t feel that way to wear; it feels normal. With the style of cathedral I have, a wedding band easily sits flush, which was part of the reason I chose it over other styles. The shoulders also provide some bump protection, though I don’t bump it often. If it is the style you love, it will work out; it will feel normal after you wear it for a little while.

My setting is tall and my stone is set really high. I like it set high, the only thing that bothers me is that my ring is top heavy and spins. But other than that I love it

My cathedral setting is pretty high, and I love it.  I like that I can see the entire diamond and I don’t find that it gets in the way or anything.

HiveFive:  My ring is fairly high.  It does catch on things, but I got used to it.  I’m thrilled with it and I will have owned it for one year tomorrow 🙂

My setting is a pretty high cathedral but I got pretty used to it!

Mine’s fairly high, it used to drive me nuts but I got used to it pretty quickly. I still bang it on something every now and again, but overall I hardly notice its height anymore.

I have a cathedral setting. It’s very comfortable  and I don’t notice it getting caught on anything.

My husband chose my ring, so I can’t really regret having chosen a high setting, but yeah, I wish it were lower. It sticks out so far, it makes it hard to put on gloves for my job, and I definitely can’t wear to do any cleaning or chores. Then again, I don’t really mind wearing it just for special occasions. I think high settings sparkle more than low settings, I guess because they capture more light.

Mine is fairly high but I have no regrets. Sometimes I turn it around if I have to put on latex gloves for work or if I wear my leather gloves in the cold. It has never caught on anything. I love how much it sparkles since the diamond sits so high.

Mine is fairly high, and I only take it off when I do something fairly rough with my hands like cleaning or working out. Of course, I’m not particularly rough on my jewellery or my hands so I don’t really have the issue with my ring banging around on things or getting caught on things. My Fiance chose my ring and I personally love how high my ring is set. I can see how it wouldn’t work for some people’s lifestyles but I love it!
