The traditional setting of a stone on a ring typically uses prongs of four or six. Our titanium tension set ring, on the other hand, uses a spring loaded technique that exerts pressure onto the gemstone to keep it in place. Tiny grooves are added onto the metal to create a space for the edges of the stone to rest upon. The result is an elegant, high quality titanium ring that beautifully shows off the gem of your choice.
The gem you choose to mount on the tension set titanium ring is certain to stand out since it has the appearance of being suspended, allowing the light to hit the jewel from multiple angles without any obstruction. This will surely highlight the beauty of the cut and color of the gem.
If you think that this “light” setting makes the stone prone to falling loose and getting lost, you are mistaken. Unlike prongs that can easily get snagged and make their hold on the gem less secure, the tension setting’s spring-loading will not weaken over time. Only a high impact blunt force could potentially damage the spring-load design and cause the stone to dislodge. In the course of typical, ordinary wear, tension settings are much more reliable than traditional ones.
Unlike traditional settings, tension settings need to be manufactured after they are sold because resizing is more difficult with this setting type, as it could affect the pressure system of the ring and the integrity of the hold on the gem. In order to avoid having to melt down the setting and redo the pressure setting all over again, it is best if sizing and gem choice is finalized first.
It used to be that tension settings could only be used with very strong gems such as diamonds, sapphires, and rubies. But Titanium Style’s unique design has made it possible to set even pearls, which are among the softest gemstones. We also have triangular shaped rings that prevent the ring from turning on the finger so that the stone always stays on top.
