Tension Settings

We are frequently asked if we will set diamonds and gemstones into what are known as 'tension' settings. We always say no to these requests because in our experience, tension settings are unsafe and your diamond will invariably fall out with even the smallest knock. In fact we are frequently asked to reset diamonds that have been tension set into more secure settings by people that have experienced first hand the dangers of a tension set engagement ring!

As a result of this, we have come up with a way of creating a 'tension look alike' - a great alternative to a tension setting. The setting is designed so that, unlike a real tension setting, there is a bridge between either side of the shank thereby ensuring the stone is held in place more securely and more able to withstand knocks. The bridge runs under the stone so it is not so visible and retains the sense of openness of a real tension set engagement ring.
