Why are Swarovski engagement rings so expensive

Tension rings: Simple engagement rings

Tension rings are a very special ring shape. With a tension ring, a stone is held solely by the ring rail. The stone is therefore under tension and is held in place by the gold. Niessing is in charge of high-quality rings of this type. This jewelry manufacturer is considered to be the premium manufacturer of premium tension rings. Niessing is also one of the few companies that is able to make rings whose stones are only held by the splint. In many cases the stones, e.g. diamonds, fall out of the rail. It takes the highest level of blacksmithing and a particularly high barrel level of stones to achieve this quality. Real gold tension rings are unfortunately very expensive and rarely affordable. That is why we at Verlobungsring.de only carry tension rings in tension ring optics. In doing so, the gemstone is through the ring band and held the composure.

1. Simple and elegant, but still a classic: the tension ring

The tension ring as an engagement ring has become a real classic - often in demand, timeless and wearable for every occasion. Tension rings are recognized as engagement rings and yet do not stand out too much. A must for anyone who doesn't want a solitaire ring as an engagement ring.

2. The setting of tension rings

The diamond is set evenly in the ring band with a tension ring. The simmer makes sure that the stone does not protrude laterally and that it is flush with the surface. The stone does not stick out. The diamond is safely protected from knocks and knocks in a clamping ring. Clamping rings are always a challenge for the drum setter, as a channel first has to be milled out laterally in the mount underneath the metal. The stone must not sit too loosely in the metal, otherwise it could fall out later. Since clamping rings can only be “grasped” by experienced setters, clamping rings are relatively more expensive than solitaire rings.

3. Why better a tension ring than an engagement ringto buyand no solitaire ring?

Tension rings have the advantage that the stones are processed flat. It is therefore not possible for the stone to get stuck on fabrics or edges. The stone is much more protected and therefore less exposed to external influences. This contributes to the longevity of your engagement ring. With a solitaire ring, on the other hand, scratching or getting stuck is possible. Please always consider this before making a purchase.

4. Platinum tension rings with diamond from € 729

Depending on the alloy, diamonds can be set in a ring band in different ways. The diamond can be set much harder in a platinum clamping ring than in a white gold or silver clamping ring. The metal platinum is therefore particularly suitable for clamping rings. It is the safest material for your engagement ring.

  • Do not use soaps or alkalis for cleaning.
  • Check the firm hold of the stone with tweezers and a "click hearing test".
