The channel setting is usually associated with eternity rings where all the stones are the same size and set in a straight channel around the ring. However, the channel setting can also be used for engagement rings with diamond set shoulders.
For channel set engagement rings or wedding bands the usual stone shapes that are usually used are round brilliant cut diamonds and princess cut diamonds.The channel setting is also popular in bespoke diamond jewellery.
The channel setting provides a secure environment for the stones whilst still allowing optimum light reflection from the diamonds.
