Princess Cut Channel Set Ring

17th January 2018     Diamond Rings, Jewellery Spotlight

Princess Cut Channel Set Ring Image

This elegant ring is designed for beauty and practicality. Set in a channel setting, this jewellery piece has a row of stunning princess cut diamonds. A channel setting is a type of mounting in which the diamonds are set into a channel made from two metal strips. The stones set in such a way form a row and can run along the entire band of the ring.

Channel settings are great for protecting diamonds as it shields the sides, meaning that they are less likely chip and break or fall out. This makes it a great ring for anyone who uses there hands a lot such as nurses or construction workers as they are well protected against any accidental hits that may chip them. However, the downside to this extra security is channel set rings have less diamond visibility and are tough to resize or fix. So when considering this ring setting make sure the sizing is absolutely right – don’t buy unless it definitely fits.

Combined with the channel setting, the ring also features an ‘invisible setting’ of the Princess Cut diamonds, which means that they have all been cut to exactly the same width and length. This allows the diamonds to be set close together without any prongs or metal in between. When crafting this setting a diamond cutter can make a little groove in the girdle (or side) of one diamond which fits the next diamond into the groove, holding them tightly together. When a master diamond setter works with invisible settings, it is very, very difficult to see the seams between the diamonds. It also lessens the chances of dirt falling through the gaps, making this a very low maintenance ring.

As with most of our rings, we can also make this particular style in all precious metals, bespoke to your needs, just get in touch using the form below.
