Bruce just sent my tension set and I wanted to share it here for others considering buying from him. The stone can't be mentioned, but his craftsmanship deserves it's own thread, so wanted to make this one. Mods, I hope that's ok! I asked him to somewhat customize his bookends style to be a hybrid of the 2 below (more curved/slight tilt than the top, less curved than the bottom).

Here's what he made! 20190311_183425.jpg 20190311_183424.jpg 20190311_183419.jpg 20190311_183417.jpg 20190311_183412.jpg


He is amazing, works fast, has good communication, and reasonably priced. Just wanted others looking for his name or considering tension sets to know. I am over the moon! Thanks to @angeline for the inspiration, and all others for your advice in RT and fabulous fashion jewelry.

Ps. Specs are the following: stone is 7mm, setting is 6mm in titanium, and my finger is size 7. I had him make it 7.25 to account for extra thickness, but honestly would have been fine with a 7.

I have a ring like it in yg but it isn’t a true tension as it has a bar under it. But I love the look!!!

Looks great! I love a chunky setting. It gives such a different vibe, yet looks amazing.

Wanted to add some pics with my 1/2 eternity band. Still think it's a bit too small (.18ct, 1.5 or 1.8mm), so considering buying a 2 or 2.5mm band for proportion. @D&T I didnt expect to like bands with this, but I like the idea of at least a small wedding band, and this combo was SO comfortable. 20190314_085630.jpg 20190314_085628.jpg 20190313_120405.jpg

It looks great, a little bit of something sparkly to add to the already gorgeous solitaire, but I know what you mean... I know I can wear my Sholdt without a band, but it feels like I’m missing a little something and found a small band 2.5mm to pair with it. I agree it looks like a great combo! And works well!

I love your modifications to the tension design, the stone looks amazing in it. :kiss2: Didn’t think tension rings were something I liked until I saw yours!

Far out how did I miss this!!! :doh:
That turned out awesome @lovedogs ! Looks superb. Love the modifications to the bookends.

You done good! and Bruce too :P2 How is the titanium? is it a light metal? what about scratchability?

I'm very impressed. Congrats to you :dance::appl::love:
