    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!


    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!!!

    For those who want daylight pics and don't venture to "fabulous fashion jewelry".

    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.

    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!
