Wedding bands have been worn for thousands of years. During this time, materials change and designs evolved. What used to be braided reeds is now gold and platinum. Gemstones are a popular addition, especially diamonds. Pave wedding bands are a new twist on a long custom.
Pave settings mount stones close together, covering the design with jewels. While a variety of gemstones are used, diamonds are the most sought-after. Some looks pave set parts such as shoulders or prongs, while others adorn the whole piece. A variation known as micro pave use the smallest possible stones.
Round brilliant or single cut diamonds are typically used in pave. Before mounting, jewels are sorted for consistent size and color. Uniform gem diameter and table size creates optimal glitter. After selection, the gems go onto the ring, held with burrs raised from the band.
Pave wedding bands are a lavish way to add diamonds to your ring. Their diamond covered surfaces provide an air of luxury while catching light every which way. As a symbol of romance, they also visually connect with diamond engagement rings while maintaining a distinct appearance. Something old, your devotion represented with your engagement ring, becomes new again with marriage and wedding band.
