I have channel set diamonds on both my e-ring and wedding band and they are very secure.  I pretty much never takes my rings off and have been wearing my e-ring since Sept. ’09 with zero issues.

I can’t really speak to a bezel setting though.

For an eternity band, either channel or bezel.   Neither has prongs and both have metal surrounding the stone edges so you probably won’t knock or crack any stones.   I think you should pick the one you like the most.  🙂

Both are lovely!  For your set, I really like the look of the princess channel band with your ering.

I have a bezel set band and I LOVE it.

I vote bezel since it’s a little less common then channel set, but is very secure and beautiful.

Bezel or channel is going to be the most secure, with channel being probably SLIGHTLY more so. (I’m a jeweler.)

I was told by my jeweler that bezel settings are the most secure, when done properly. My ering and my wedding band are bezel set.

I really like the waythe bezel set band looks with your ring!

i have an eternity band like the first pic.  it’s actually semi-bezel because the bezel doesn’t go all the way around each diamond.  i love this band and looks great with my ering.

with your ering, i think the channel set looks better.  they are both straight bands.  they are perfect together.

I agree with @tonights:  channel or bezel, in that order. 

also, they are the most comfortable! (no prongs to dig in)

Not sure about security but the channel looks gorgeous with your ring.
