Shared Prong vs. Channel Set (Feedback)
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 10-29-05 , 11:46 PM


I am trying to decide on a wedding band purchase and would love some feedback. Any pros/cons on either of these types of settings?

I am looking to purchase a platinum setting, 2-3mm in size, to wear along with my three stone princess that is just under 4 carat t.w. I would like to have the band accent my three stone and be more subtle. Initially, I planned to just purchase a plain platinum band, but after some looking and trying in combination I feel small diamonds would be quite nice. It would also be nice for those times when I choose not to wear the larger ring and go solo with the band.

By the way, my three stone is princess, but ever so slightly rectangular in shape.


Any feedback...pros/cons would be great.

I actually "had" a shared prong. I paired a round/baguette eternity band with a princess solitare. I personally felt that the shared prong 'scratched' the shank of my ring to much.

In fact... I am actually awaiting my wedding band to be rebuilt but in a channel setting in hopes that it won't cause as much friction...

This is just my $0.02

i have both...and personally i end up wearing my channel bands a lot more since it's more comfortable. The shared prong is more of a flashier piece and I like to wear it on its own but it does cause some discomfort since the prongs tend to rub inside of your fingers.
