Channel-Setting-Diamond-Ring

Here again we discuss about setting matters. This time the topic is about channel setting diamond ring. Channel setting is kind of technique, that firmly set the diamond stones to be sit in an exact position over two line of metal plate, that is why it is named channels. This sentence before actually has a bit ambiguity. In diamond jewelry market then, also well known as the channel set – looks alike is the bar setting. And it is true that both of them actually working on the same way, with a slightly difference. The bar setting let the metal bar crossed so it is called bar setting, while the one we are discussing right now, the channel setting letting the metal line on its original straight line. The theory exactly looks alike actually. Again the channel setting drawing such a word similar to U form, of course with two points and a bottom part. The bottom side is where the bottom of diamond stones will be placed, and the upper points are where it keeps the stone stay still on the channel line. When the time comes to finishing session, the designer will make an extra attention into the metal managing part. What i am trying to say is, because the channel hold some diamonds at the same time, it is a must for the designers to make sure that the metal get it fixed to hold the diamond strong and surely. Once it is not checked well, then it is not about a single but all of the diamonds in that channel will be in danger. In this working part, there exist a tool that looks like a hammer in the normal working tools. Of course one that used in this term is the small one, that can “hit” the metal,  making sure that it is closed enough to cover up the diamond sit, sure but gently so that it wont affect any scracth to the diamonds. Channel Setting Diamond Ring

Now talking about the other setting that oftenly make people confuse on where is the difference works on. Eventhough this second similar setting look physically so similar with the channel setting, but they are totally not in common. It is the pave setting. Both setting may looks alike because they all are diamond setting that manage some or even many tiny diamonds.  The channel itself as i said before, set the diamonds in a bar, tightly touching each other, so that there is no exist any left space or metal border created to separate the diamonds. Its just the top two points that mange the diamonds so that they are safely placed on the metal. While the pave setting, kinda best setting in represent the idea of designer about a beauty, it set the tiny diamonds exactly on their own place. So even there are so many tiny diamonds, forming a quite area of a certain shape, they are surely have their own spot on the metal. So even physically the diamonds looks covering all of the metal surface, but deep in the lower state, there exist a small metal space where the diamonds get separated each of them.  Channel Setting Diamond Ring
