Wanna brush up on your jewelry jargon? Pave. Pronounced “pah-ve”, these settings create an illusion that a the ring is paved with diamonds. Think diamond encrusted, glitter, delicate beadwork, beautiful. Pave settings use tiny beads or very tiny prongs to hold the diamonds, maximizing the sparkle and minimizing the appearance of the metal. RingSpotters has featured multiple pave set rings over the past few months, all of which we adore. A micro pave is an even more delicate take on the pave setting where the smallest rings are used to create a maximum glitter effect. Check out Serena William’s “Famous Pave Dome Lucky Ring” which she supposedly wears on the court!
