Originating in the early 1900s, pavé (pronounced pah-vay) is derived from the French word paver that literally means “to pave.” This stone setting technique allows for gemstones to be set as closely together as possible on a metal base, rendering the support structure nearly invisible and creating the impression of an endless sea of sparkle and shine.
The pavé style involves setting small diamonds in a single row or slightly offset multiple rows. Very little metal is seen in a pave wedding band which superbly showcases the fire of the diamonds. An intricate process best performed by highly skilled diamond setters, each stone in pavé diamond rings begins with a very small hole drilled into the metal. A gemstone is then placed onto the hole and tiny beads of supporting metal are placed to hold every stone firmly in place. This meticulous process results in pave wedding bands that are breathtakingly beautiful and unique.
The pavé setting can be used with virtually any diamond shape, but by far it is most popular to showcase the inherent fire and sparkle of round brilliant cut diamonds. This setting style is often used to enhance the center stone in engagement rings, either as side diamonds set in the band or surrounding the center stone. In some cases, both style elements are used to create truly memorable jewelry creations. Pave set diamond rings are also extremely popular for diamond wedding bands, and can range from elegant single row settings to extravagant multiple row combinations.
