Thank you for your reply. What exactly do you mean by "higher?" I did choose a prong setting and not a bezel, is that what you mean?Tekate|1452476652|3973933 said:they say platinum is stronger, so if your stone is set higher I'd get platinum... I've had both and like the platinum better.
Hi and thank you for your response! I'm curious though - why do you recommend that I ask them to order that ring in my size as opposed to have it sized (I didn't even know I could ask that, I thought it was protocol to size the sample)? And do I have to specifically ask for medium height? What is the "standard" sized height head? Thanks!diamondseeker2006|1452486122|3973996 said:I would want the jeweler to order that ring new in your ring size and with the right head for your stone (correct size for the diamond and platinum) rather than altering a sample setting they have in the store. Prong tips of white gold wear away over time. Platinum doesn't.
Ask for a medium height head. If it's too high, you are at greater risk of hitting your diamond against something and damaging it.
