What is a pavé diamond engagement ring?
- Pavé setting:
The French word "pavé" translates into "pavement". This word is used to indicate a type of ring setting - in which tiny diamonds are closely set together, resulting in a line - or pavement - of continuous diamonds.
Because pavé diamonds are set on the side of the central stone, this setting style is often referred to as "side stones".

Engagement rings can also be set with another type of pavé - the "crown-pavé", also called "Halo". This is yet another setting style in which tiny diamonds are surrounding the central diamond in a crown-like manner, making the center diamond appear much bigger.

A full pavé setting displays both side stones onto the band itself AND a "Halo" around the center stone. This extremely glamorous setting style can transform any engagement ring set with a relatively small center diamond into a sparkling stunner!
Benefits of a full pavé engagement ring
Full pavé engagement rings are a wonderful choice for several reasons:
- this setting style has the best value-for-money price point: pavé diamonds add a lot of sparkle for only a small increase in price
- the "halo" surrounding the center diamond offer protection to the main stone
- the "halo" makes the center stone appear much bigger than it is
- if you wish for your engagement ring to be sparkly, this type of setting is the most glamorous one there is!
