I originally had a channel set. The stones were very secure and it was very comfortable to wear since the stones were not exposed. Since mine were princess cut diamonds it was very easy to clean since there was no space in between. The one thing I noticed is that the diamonds did not sparkle as much in a channel set.  Here are a few pics of my setting. Sorry for the big pics

I haven’t got a picture of my actual wedding ring but here’s the store picture. I got channel set AND bead set since I’m a complete klutz who wanted diamonds that would resist my falling over/getting stuck/other clumsiness.

Here’s mine – poor photo taken on a camera phone. I love it, it really suits my style. They are square radiant moissanite. I like how the square are butted right up against each other.

@SeaBabe:  I don’t actually get to wear my band yet but it’s a channel set and the…ahem….few….times I’ve tried it on it has been very comfortable.  It’s the same as my band on my engagement ring and I find it sparkles a ton, despite being channel set. Hope that helps! 🙂

I chose a channel set band for the same reasons as you have already stated.  I wanted a durable band that had bling to it.  I’ve had my ring for a little over a year, and I still love it as much as the day I got it.  It’s super comfortable, sparkly (I think it sparkles as much as any other non-channel set band I’ve ever seen), and durable.  I got (well, we had it custom made, actually) a thicker one because the diamonds are larger, and because I wanted a substantial band for when I wear alone, without my e-ring.  Here’s some pics!

@SeaBabe:  There’s a small gap. It doesn’t bother me at all – it’s definitely personal preference.

@futuremrswood:  I LOVE how yours is thicker on the edges!!!

I love channel set bands, they are very comfortable! I have a CZ one that I wear on my right hand. I think you would love it!

be sure to shop around. there are sligthly different kinds — some of them are more delicate than others so if you don’t like how one looks next to your e-ring, keep looking!

if you can afford it, try to get a full or almost-full eternity band. it sounds like comfort is a big factor for you, and an advantage to eternity is that you can wear it a little bit looser and will never have to worry about spinning.

Mine is a combo of Chanel set and prong, if you like the look of a prong but its not comfortable maybe check out something like this?

If the french pave ring was uncomfortable, I would def. recommend a channel set eternity band or a pave eternity ring.  They are much more comfortable and won’t rub on your finger.

I have a channel set band on both my e-ring and wedding band.  I love them and have never had any issues despite 2-3 years (depending on which ring you’re talking about) of daily wear.
