Hi! I spoke with a jeweler the other day about channel vs. shared settings. She said that channel settings enclose the diamonds so that light can’t penetrate all around the diamond, this results in less sparkles. Shared settings, on the other hand, don’t enclose the diamonds, so light can pass through them and hit all around the stone and this creates more sparkle. 

Also, round diamonds sparkle the most because of their cut. 

Good luck in finding/creating your perfect ring!

I have channel set princess cut diamonds in my e-ring. What @Yumi said is probably true–because they’re enclosed, they probably don’t sparkle asmuch as a shared setting. But they’re VERY secure and they definitely sparkle enough to suit me ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry, this is the best picture of my ring that I have right now.

I have channel set princess and baguettes alternating on my band. I also like the clean look of them.

Fiance actually chose this diamond cuz he liked the clarity and sparkle better than the round cut  he was looking at ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a variation of this ring – and it sparkles a lot. My sweety thought it’d be extra sparkly if the light could get in from a variety of ways – I think he might have been right.It could be the 4c’s too ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow! The pictures of all the channel set diamonds are really sparkly! According to all this evidence, the jeweler I spoke with may be wrong!

@sjones – that is interesting. But the hole on the bottom is blocked by your finger. So how does the light get in through the hole?

I LOVE how much my ring sparkles.  Yes – in general round diamonds sparkle more than princess cuts BUT when they are channel set you lose the lighting from the side anyways.  I found when I was looking that my Fiance and I did not like the round stones in a channel set because there was a lot of “dark space” since the round diamonds could not fit together as well as the princess cut ones.  I prefer a round brilliant center stone, but I like the look of my princess channel set side stones.  From what you are saying you want something similar to my e-ring!  It is beautiful and very sparkly, so if that is what you want, do it! Here are a few pics of mine – not the best photos but it works!
