    From what I understand, channel set diamonds are pretty safe.  It’s the pave set ones that fall out a lot.

    I wear 2 bands, one on each side of my e ring and they are both channel set and I very rarely take them off. I’ve never worried about the stones falling out. And I am very hard on them, I am a lefty so I use my left hand for everything so they get bumped around pretty bad. Now that I think about it I’m really surprised I’ve never lost a stone. Its not the bands that I would worry. About though, it’s the three stone e ring I have, yikes. 🙂

    I have a channel set baguette ring that I was wearing on my right hand daily for several years.  The only reason I stopped was because I want DH to get the hint and take it in for a trade.  Le Sigh. 

    Anyways,  I dont wear any rings when I sleep/clean/shower but I never had any issues with that ring except one time.  I was carrying a grandfather clock and tripped on stairs and my ring bearing hand broke the fall and flattened the ring pretty bad.  The jeweler was able to fix it tho.  Im pretty sure that will never happen to anywone else tho =)

    I have a pave set half eternity diamond and sapphire ring that I always wear on my right ring finger (I’m right handed). I never take it off! It will be joining my engagement ring in a few weeks when I get it just to make it pop! But I have had absolutely no problems with it being knocked about. It sits very close to the hand so there doesn’t seem much chance to knock it around.

    Channel set here, I’ve never had a problem at all and I wear mine everyday, all day. I only take it off to shower and and do dishes. [or if I’m using my hands to knead/mix]

    My rings has channel set opals, and I wear it all the time.  I even wear them camping, hiking, fishing, etc.  My ring is 14 1/2 years old, and I’ve never needed a repair.

    I don’t but I think as far as settings go, it is your best bet for every day wear.

    I’ve been wearing a channel set band on my right hand for the last few years. I’be had no issues with it, except for forgetting to take it off once when I was making bread. Took forever for all the dough to come out! It’s held up perfectly. I would get a channel set band over a pave if you want diamonds.

    It sounds like I have the exact same band that you do.  I chose it specifically for its durability. The only time I don’t wear it is at work and that is because I work with animals and don’t want to get it THAT dirty. 🙂  It has held up just as I wanted it to so wear it in good health!
