I love tension set rings, but opted not to get one since they cannot be sized (they must be re-made.) titanium is an excellent choice for a tension setting.  Platinum can also be a good choice but is obviously more expensive.  I would definately get the ring and stones insured, as ANY stones can fall out!

My e-ring has a tension look, but is not a true tension setting as it has a bridge below the stones so it is more easily sizable.

Tension setting are pretty secure when they are done right. Actually a correctly made tension setting is considered to be more secure than a prong setting. Titanium is naturally a more springy material so it’s easier to make tension setting out of so your choice of retailers who can do it is going to be larger. I’ve done quite a bit of research on the subject and am getting this ring when Fiance decides he has enough saved:

(There are only 4 tension setting manufactures in the world that are considered reputable with metals other than titanium.)

My FI’s friend had a wedding band with a tension set diamond.  He’s an auto technician and the stone did pop out of the setting a couple times while he was working.  I think he ultimately got a new band because of the hassle of having the stone put back.  I don’t know what the ring material was, unfortunately.
