The Tension Ring is a very special ring style. In a tension ring, a stone is held solely by the ring band. The stone is thus under tension and held in place by the gold. The Niessing company is the leader for high-quality rings of this type. This jewelry manufacture is considered the premium manufacturer of premium tension rings. Niessing is also one of the few companies capable of making rings whose stones are held in place only by the rail. In many cases, the stones, such as diamonds, fall out of the rail. It requires the highest forging skills and especially high barrel level of stones to achieve this quality. Real gold tension ring are unfortunately very expensive and rarely affordable. That's why at BREEDIA we only carry tension ring in tension ring look. Here the gemstone is held by the ring rail and the setting.
