What Do Channel Settings Look Like?
What Is a Channel Setting?

Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Set

Wedding Rings by Oromi
Gemstone settings are nearly always named with a term that describes the way they actually hold the gems in place, and the term channel setting is no exception. Channel set gemstones are placed into a metal channel, and flow side by side in a continuous row.

The seven-diamond wedding band on this page is an example of a channel setting. You'll see the technique often when you shop for an engagement ring.
