Radiant and spectacular, pavé wedding bands are perfect for saying ‘I do’ to that special someone. Pronounced “pa-vay”, the pave setting originates from the French word ‘to pave’, as in paving with diamonds. The sobriquet is quite descriptive of this precise style of diamond setting in which small diamonds are closely set together with minimal visibility of the tiny metal prongs or beads holding the gemstones in place. Literally paving an entire area of a ring, the style is fashioned to ultimately produce the desired effect of single continuous sparkle.
The artisan typically drills to form holes into the ring, carefully places small diamonds of corresponding size, and finally forms mini-prongs or tiny beads around the edges of the diamonds to secure each diamond safely into the holes. This setting is also popularly known as bead setting. In case of particularly small diamonds, the style is called micro pavé setting. Diamonds are regarded as pavé set when they come in tiny sizes of .01-.02 carats and any smaller than that are said to be micro pavé.
