My hubby has recently bought me a 1.22 ct H, Si2 diamond. He purposely asked the jeweller to set it as high as possible, thinking more lights would pass through the diamond, hence more sparkly, plus the diamond would look bigger. I do think that it does look bigger if I look straight down to the ring, but it looks odd if I view it from the side. Can anyone show me what your heart shape diamond ring looks like? any ideas on what setting I should be looking at? another question is that I took pictures of the ring, but the picture exceeding the size limit...any help?

Thanks!

If you don''t like the setting from the side, then get it re-done. Your jewelry should please you and not anybody else. That being, said, I personally don''t like high settings, as I am always afraid it will be hit on something and knocked off.

I''ve been wearing the ring for the past few days, just to ''test'' it out and I think all of you are right that it feels like the ring is always in my way....i''m afraid it will get damage soon....here''s the side view.

I''d take it back to the jeweller and ask to have it lowered. If you''re uncomfortable with the height, you won''t enjoy wearing your ring! It''s beautiful, but I agree that it''s set very high.

Are you looking for a completely new setting? I like the idea of bezeling the diamond, as it would accentuate the heart shape.

ETA: If you like your current setting, I would go back to the jeweler, and have them lower the stone. I imagine it gets caught on things a lot!

I agree with a nice thin bezel, I think it will be the most flattering shape for a heart diamond. It will also make it appear a little bigger. I love the band of your ring though! Very pretty.

Your diamond is lovely. I am pretty kltutzy so I would want the setting lowered. Here is a RHR I have with a heart diamond mounted on a sapphire /diamond ering. My heart diamond is much smaller than yours though; it is a 1/2 ct.

I don''t know if NSC sells their mountings only, but I found this heart shaped bezel setting, simple, but pretty.
