Pave Engagement Ring Settings

Pavé (pronounced ‘pah-VAY’) engagement rings are those that incorporate a diamond setting technique involving the use of tiny, fully faceted diamonds positioned very closely together. The effect is to create a solid surface of diamond sparkle. Pavé (commonly written ‘pave’) comes from the French word for ‘paved’ as in a road paved with sparkling cobblestones.
The small diamonds used in pavé are called melee (pronounce ‘MEH-lee’ or sometimes ‘meh-LEH’), another French word meaning mixture. They can be as small as a quarter of a point. That is, 0.0025 carats!

Some of the most intricate engagement ring styles feature diamond pave in which many small diamonds are packed together. Each one is secured with nearly invisible metal beads that act as tiny prongs. The term ‘bead setting’ is used in association with slightly separated melee or when the stones are set in single lines. If the diamonds are extremely small, the jeweler works under a microscope to set the diamonds. This highly specialized technique is referred to as micro-pavé.

Pave settings are my personal favorite and are an increasingly popular choice for dramatic and beautiful wedding rings, right hand rings and other diamond fashion jewelry. From a value standpoint pave set diamonds greatly increase the beauty of the piece of jewelry, but not necessarily the price. The cost of many small diamonds is much lower than if the total carat weight was in a single stone. To achieve the full breathtaking effect that pave settings will produce, each little diamond is intricately placed into tiny prongs or beads. Very little metal will show and the diamonds look encrusted over the entire glittering surface.
For an even more dramatic and refined look, many opt for Micro Pave Engagement rings. This involves a high level of skill in setting the tiniest possible diamonds ranging from 0.005 carts to 0.01 carats very close together in the mounting. To execute micro pave a jeweler must work under a microscope! Imagine the patience and expertise needed for this painstaking task.
