Pavé settings lend a classy, shimmering quality to jewelry. More sparkle than bling, pave is becoming ever more popular as an accessorizing option that elevates your style to instant elegance.
Pavé comes from the french word meaning paved, calling to mind cobblestone walkways shimmering with fresh rain as the sunlight shines down. This method uses bead setting, where stones are set directly into the metal using tiny chisels called "gravers," with many tiny diamonds or crystals set close together, for a glimmering, lustrous sheen.
