Get a little more sparkle with channel set diamond rings
What is this fascination with channel set diamond rings?
To begin with channel settings describe how the stone are held in place by the ring setting.
Channel set diamonds are placed into a metal tunnel.
The diamonds flow in a continuous row, because no metal is used to separate them.
The channel set diamonds also tend to highlight the center stone.
The centre stone could be a diamond or a precious stone like Tanzanite, Sapphire or a Ruby.
The metal used in channel set rings can be either gold or platinum depending on what you like & your budget as the platinum tends to be more expensive than the gold.
Channel settings are mainly used to set round diamonds.
The beauty of these rings is that they add amazing detail to a plain looking ring like a solitaire, emerald cut diamond rings or it can be used on its own covering the whole ring.
Since the stones used in the channel set diamond rings are quite small, they rings tend to be quite affordable in as much as they offer such great beauty.
However if a center stone is added, the price will go up & at times quite steeply.
The reason is that the centre
stone should be bigger than the stones in the channel and as mentioned above.
They are either big diamond or precious stones.
If you are planning to wear your channel set rings on a daily basis, channel settings are very durable and it is very difficult to chip or damage the diamonds when they are set in this way.
