Pavé engagement rings
Named after the French word for paving stones, this style incorporates a centre diamond or gemstones with shoulders that are paved with small diamonds, set closely together. Each gem or diamond is separated and held in place by individual microscopic metal settings, giving the appearance of the shoulders being dusted with diamonds. Sometimes it even looks like the ring is made of diamonds as the metal is hidden away below.
Pavé rings are set with diamonds that are often very uniform in size and spacing. The more precisely cut the diamonds, the better the ring setting. At Taylor & Hart, the diamonds we use to set into a pavé setting are a colour grade of G, and are a clarity grade of VS2 – though you can request a higher colour and/or clarity if you’d like.
The ring shank on pavé engagement rings have to be wider to accommodate all of the smaller diamonds and this produces a more substantial ring that many find appealing.
When choosing a pave engagement ring, be mindful of the lifestyle of the lady who will be wearing the ring.
Pavé engagement rings require a fairly high level of care because of the small diamonds that are set in the band.
Also worth considering is the price point of pavé engagement rings. A pavé diamond ring can incur a higher price due to the amount of work required to set all of the small diamonds. It is often the amount of bench time needed by our craftsmen to set the small diamonds, rather than the materials used that increases the price.
