I prefer channel setting over prong because of the comfort of the setting and also the safety of the setting.  My wedding band is a ruby and diamond half-eternity and when I had the opportunity to pick my own engagement ring, after a repair on my original went very wrong, I chose to have my new ring designed with a channel set band as well.  I have been wearing the wedding band for about 5 years.  It has needed no repair and looks as good as the day it was purchased.

Just the band…

 

With my enagement ring…

I hope you find a band that is perfect for you! 🙂

I really like channel settings too as I prefer more metal than stone in a wedding ring. I am considering this one for my wedding band, in silver and brown diamonds. It feels safe, fairly robust and has the right amount of glitter. I’d say go for channel if it’s what you prefer. ^^

I would do semi-bezel, all the protection (and non-snagging)  of a channel set ring but shows off the stones a little better. 🙂

I don’t care for prongs, so I would go with the channel setting. I think it will snag a lot less than a ring with prongs.

I picked a claw/prong set wedding ring. It is a more delicate setting though than a channel set but for me I just thought it gave me a little more sparkle

I think I showed you mine yesterday..it can be uncomfortable at times and does tend to get caught on my clothes..so I would definitely go for channel set if I were you.

I always wanted a full channel wring, but my DH insisted on matching plain bands. I love them!!
