What exactly does low relief and blend well mean on a diamond? Thanks
Are you talking about how high the stone is set...I would think that low relief would mean the stone was set lower.
If you are talking well blended with respect to the head of the setting I would think that it means that it is integrated
in with the setting and not a peg-head.

This is an integrated head made to fit a certain size/shape of stone.

This is a peg head...look at the side profile. They can plug in any head to fit any size diamond and also other shapes.

Ok, just ignore my last post. I didnt see that you were specifically talking about a "diamond". In that case I have
no idea what it means.
