Paving The Way

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistOne trend surging in popularity is the widespread use of pavé-set diamonds in diamond engagement rings. As the name implies, “pavé” (which is the past participle of the French verb “to pave”) involves setting small diamonds so closely together that they visually meld together. As a result, much like cobblestones arranged on an old city street, there seems to be a continuous band of gemstones. In actuality, each diamond is separated by a small amount of metal, but the gemstones fit so closely together that the separation of metal appears invisible to the naked eye. Jewelers use this design to great effect by surrounding a diamond solitaire with pavé diamonds to make it appear larger. When it comes to the symbol of love you’ll wear for a lifetime, many brides-to-be choose antique-styled rings. Closely set diamonds in a pave setting reflects enduring quality and lasting elegance.See our outstanding selection of beautiful offerings at 1402 Hancock Street, Quincy Center.
