Top 5 Vintage Rings with Channel-Set Gemstones

There is nothing quite as sophisticated as the channel setting. From the vantage point of the jeweler, it requires superior artistry to place multiple gemstones in an exactly measured row. Stone cuts must be precise, and the creation of the channel allows for little error. Collectors love this design because it is this setting that allows for the use of multiple stones that will nevertheless not snag on clothes or hair. For the budget-conscious aficionado, there is the possibility of purchasing a ring that is a bit easier on the pocket book since there are plenty of channel-set pieces that use smaller gems as well.
Peter Suchy Jewelers offer a large selection of channel-set pieces. Of course, we do have our favorites.
