Channel Setting

A setting  where  the  gems  (often  Diamonds,  Rubies or Sapphires) rest in a channel and are  only secured by a slight rim which runs the length  of  the  channel.  The  design  is  becoming  very  popular for Eternity rings, and the gemstones are  normally round cut, square cut or baguette cut.    This style can only be used for gemstones that  are faceted to precise dimensions (precision cut),  as they all need to be of identical size in order to  sit firmly in the channel.  Please note, that it is very difficult to re-size a channel set ring
