Tension set engagement ring


Canong7 originally posted this stunning tension set engagement ring on the Show Me the Bling forum at PriceScope.  There is something particularly fascinating about a tension setting, it nearly looks like it is magically hovering! Show us your favorite tension settings!


Like so many, Canong7 leaned into the PriceScope community when starting the search for an engagement ring. Tension set rings have such a unique look that features the diamond in a different way than more traditional settings, and really is a testament to the precision of the craftsmanship. This grey gold just adds to the extraordinary look of this ring. Niessing specializes in tension settings, and this one is a fabulous example of their skill!


grey gold is just a touch darker than titanium

Canong7 and his intended had the entire observation deck of Top of the Rock, on Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center, when he proposed on rainy evening. This tension set engagement ring got him a big YES!  I hope that it has been a lovely marriage filled with joy! Maybe if we ask nicely he’ll come back and give us hand shots!
