If your partner requires that extra bit of sparkle, consider one of the many breathtaking pavé, pronounced “pa-vay,” engagement rings you’ll find at Ben Garelick Jewelers. The word pavé comes from the French word for “paved” and these engagement rings appear as if they are paved with diamonds. Ben Garelick Jewelry experts hand-select our diamond pavé engagement rings to give you that one-of-a-kind radiance that will reflect from her ring and her heart.
What Is A Pavé Diamond Engagement Ring?
Pavé diamond settings are commonly seen in engagement rings and can help achieve the illusion of a larger center diamond. The pavé design is achieved by using small beads of the precious metal of your choice applied in the spaces between the diamonds to secure them in place and create a glittering unbroken expanse of light and sparkle. These small beads often add avintage or traditional look to our engagement rings. The pave setting is often combined with milgrain where a tiny row of beads acts as the border of a ring. These types of settings were used during the Edwardian and Art Deco eras.
The pavé setting is produced by many of the world-renowned jewelry designers available at Ben Garelick Jewelers including some of our most popular engagement rings like the vintage style engagement ringby Simon G. and thissplit shank diamond engagement ringby Kirk Kara. Mosthalo engagement ringsettings are also pavé settings because pavé settings take up less space. In rare cases when the halo uses very large accent diamonds, the stones may be set into a prong setting. You’ll also find pavé designs by Gabriel,Coast, Barkev’s and Artcarved.
Advances in gem cutting and the consumer demand to have as little metal showing as possible have led the way to more modern pavé settings including u-cut, v-cut and French cut. These techniques help minimize the visible metal to give the illusion that the smallest diamonds are floating to create one solid area of diamond.
