What you need to know about gold tension ring settings: Titanium, Platinum, Steel, Gold Ring Setting.
Gradually gaining popularity, gold tension ring settings (most notably the tension setting engagement ring) maximizes the brilliance of the diamond extremely well – it can enhance diamond color by as much as two grades. The stone is given maximum exposure to light, thus resulting in a much more brilliant stone.
Each tension ring setting requires much intricate craftsmanship and skill. Originating in Europe only a few decades ago, the tension ring setting relies on the tension (natural tendency) of the metal to hold the diamond securely in place. The tension set has to be just right: if too loose, the stone might not be held securely. And if too tight, the stone might crack.
