Tension set ring cons. The biggest drawback of tension set rings is that they are very difficult to resize. Resizing this style of rings can break the tension and the stone may come lose. This might be a serious problem for a wedding ring, because you are going to wear it for the rest of your life. You may gain or lose weight, and even if you don’t, with age your fingers ”shrink”. Most people need to resize their wedding rings as life goes on, but with tension set rings this is almost impossible.
Most people know that a wedding ring is symbolic of the bond of love and commitment between two people. But not everyone knows about the history behind this small yet powerful symbol. The history of the wedding ring goes back not just hundreds but thousands of years. No other currently practiced wedding tradition has been around as long.
Another important statistic is that even in this economy the groom hasn’t downsized the ring. In fact, only 14 percent of grooms admitted that they purchased an inferior ring due to the negative economic climate – about one-quarter of grooms said they spent more than they originally budgeted for. It is true that white gold is still as popular as ever, but a significant number of couples are studying alternative metals. For instance, in 2011, more than one-quarter (27 percent) of grooms opted for tungsten and 16 percent decided to buy a titanium ring.
Engagement rings are purchased when a man chooses to tell that special someone that he is ready to bind their life together and gets a ring to symbolize and seal his affection. Traditionally a ring for engagement consists of a prominent center stone studded in a yellow or white gold band. Sometimes there are smaller stones to grace the big one in a certain kind of pattern. Mostly the first choice for a wedding ring is a diamond but these days rubies, emeralds, sapphires and tanzanite are also being used. The center stone mostly has the maximum prominence in the ring and is the crowning glory; it may be a single one like a solitaire. A solitaire ring is often the way a woman envisions her engagement ring, that towering rock with all its brilliance is what will surely take her breath away.
You must identify the correct setting for your stone including traditional classic solitaire, three stone setting, side stones, tension setting and pave setting. Your individual taste and imagination will guide you through this choice and should you wish to have a truly bespoke design, an expert jeweller will offer an individually designed jewellery setting. This will allow any setting choice to be fully customised.
