Channel Setting Style – Jewelry Defintion


An example of a channel setting style with a prong set center diamond.


In a channel setting, multiple gemstones are set in a row between two walls of metal, in other words, “the channel.”  The gemstones are held in place by their edges tucked inside a groove in the inside wall.

Channel-set gemstones are smooth to the touch and resist catching on clothing.
