mine is pretty low set and thin! I am not personally a fan of high settings so I asked that it be made as low as possible while still leaving room for the basket detailing. my band is at 1.7mm I think! it says 1.9mm on my CAD but that was the pre-polished measurement. i’ve attaches the CAD so you can see my basket height 🙂

Congrats on your engagement!  My 6-prong solitarie setting is from Adiamor (see link), which I had customized to lower the diamond and thin the band to 1.8mm (with softened knife edge so it appears thinner) and also soften the prongs.  Ring size is 5.5 and diamond is 1.85 ct for reference. Most jewelers are able to customize to a certain degree, so it’s worth asking.  GL and have fun ring shopping!

I wanted a very secure setting, so I told my SO I wanted a bezel solitaire. The jeweler he found makes a bezel setting that’s super thin around the girdle and is also the lowest I’ve seen while still letting a lot of light in. The band tapers from 2.4mm to 2mm.

My e ring is 1.5mm unplated white gold. I wanted a martini style setting vs cathedral because I prefer the look, but, like you, wanted to keep it as low profile as possible. I expressed all of this to the jeweler and she did an amazing job creating a custom setting for me! I am a size 6 and the stone is 2.4 carats for reference 

 

 

 

i also think the Lauren B “invisible” style setting is a gorgeous low profile option if you want a little more bling

Mine is from Stuller and I asked that the jeweler set the stone as low as possible.  I wear gloves frequently and have never had trouble taking them on or off!

This is a setting I tried to make work but ended up returning because I like a higher set ring, so this may be something you’d be interested in! It’s a 1.23ct elongated cushion, naturally light yellow diamond on a size 5 for reference. First photo is 2mm and the second is 1.8mm (I just don’t have a photo of the profile view with the thinner band.

I have a 1.8 cm band with a 1.4 ct emerald cut diamond with two baguette side stones. It’s set quite low and I love it. I’m a physician and I wear gloves often and it never gets in the way.

This baby is a 7.5 mm moissanite on a 1.5 mm band. I searched all over for something low set because I am also always taking gloves on and off. I’ll be honest that it snags a bit when taking them off. This may be because I have a tendency to snap off my gloves forcefully, or because I wear a lot of sterile gloves, which are more fitted. I haven’t ripped a glove, I just don’t like the feeling against the ring. I have taken to rotating it in my palm when doing something with gloves. Still absolutely adore it and would choose the same ring every time.

Mine is a basket/trellis style solitaire and we requested that it be made and set as low as possible. Because of the cathedral sides I don’t find things catch on it as it is all smooth lines rather than any “edges”. If you want something really low, an invisible gallery is probably your best bet

Claw prongs or bezels are the only way to go if you wear gloves, IMO. All my rings with post prongs rip my gloves. 

I have a bezel set ring with a 1.5 mm band

Mine was set low so it wouldn’t snag my clothes or knock into things.
