Picture this: you're strolling down an uber-romantic cobblestone street, the moon casting a soft glow overhead, when suddenly a flash of light catches your eye. You're drawn like a magpie to some shiny object, only this time, it's not just any sparkle—it's the mesmerizing brilliance of a tiny diamond. It's then that you recognize that sometimes the smallest bit of sparkle can beckon you into a world of pure romance, glamour, and enchantment.

Now, imagine untold numbers of those tiny diamonds, carefully laid out on that street as far as the eye can see. Well this, my friends, is the magic of pavé diamonds. And who wouldn't want that on their finger to enjoy every day? But where did this setting style come from and how should you shop for your own perfect pavé ring? Let's explore below:

Step into elegance and bliss with the ultimate out of sparkle with the  Signature Pavé Engagement Ring With Round Cut Diamond and Pavé Ripple Eternity Bands.

What in the World is Pavé?

First things first, let's talk about what exactly pavé is. Pronounced "pah-vay" (just in case you were about to start a debate at your next cocktail party), this term hails from the French word "paver," meaning "to pave." Yes, as in a cobblestone street. And boy, does it pave the way for some serious sparkle! Instead of referring to a center diamond setting type like you might find in an engagement ring, pavé setting involves closely setting small diamonds or gemstones into a surface of metal, creating a continuous shimmering effect that's as enchanting as a starlit sky.

There are a few different pavé patterns you might see. Sometimes these smaller diamonds are all the same size, arranged in one or more straight rows to create a grid effect. Sometimes same-size diamonds are arranged in staggered rows creating a more honeycomb-like look. And sometimes pavé features different size diamonds arranged in a more scattered, undulating pattern over the surface of the jewelry.

Featured here is the Wide Dome Diamond Pavé Eternity Band where a straight row of small diamonds circles around the whole band.

A Glimpse into the History of Pavé

While it's hard to pinpoint the exact moment when pavé burst onto the scene, we can thank the skilled artisans of centuries past for laying the groundwork. In the 20th century, however, pavé truly stole the spotlight, with jewelry major designers embracing this technique to create breathtaking pieces that captured the essence of glamour and sophistication.

You may also hear terms like "petite pavé" or "micro-pavé" or "French pavé" which are simply slight variations on the style or size of the setting type. In standard pavé rings, diamonds are secured by minuscule beads of metal, while in slightly larger or single row pavé bands, diamonds may be secured by itty bitty prongs. French pavé features a v-cut prong that has a more angular side view.

Pavé Rings to Suit Any Style

So, what do pavé rings actually look like and which style is right for you? Well, the beauty of pavé lies in its versatility. Whether you're a fan of understated elegance or bold statement pieces, there's a pavé ring out there with your name on it. Here's a glimpse into some of the most popular pavé wedding band styles and pavé engagement rings:

Pavé Diamond Engagement Rings

Many folks are saying "yes" to forever with a dazzling pavé diamond engagement ring. From classic solitaires with a delicate pavé band to intricate pavé diamond halo designs that exude timeless charm, these rings are guaranteed to make your heart skip a beat. At GOODSTONE, our Signature Pavé Solitaire—set with a center diamond shape of your choice—is a delicate cathedral engagement ring with a fine row of pavé set diamond stones down each shoulder, cut to perfection. It's clean, modern, and minimal but not without a little flair.

If you're looking for something that says "more is more", our Triple Row Pavé Engagement Ring features, well, three rows of tiny stones, giving you sparkle from every angle. Each ring is custom crafted to suit your ring size, metal choice (yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or platinum), and any other details you'd like, so feel free to dream!

For a super modern take, whether worn as your engagement ring or a statement ring, we love a double-banded ring, with a big center diamond cradled in between. Our Double Row Gap Ring simultaneously creates space on the finger and sets you up for a unique wedding band stack.

Pavé Wedding Bands

Whether you're adding a diamond band to your engagement ring, creating a beautiful ring stack, or looking for a pavé wedding band to wear solo, there are plenty of options. There is of course the ultimate classic pavé diamond wedding band: a thin, simple gold band set with a row of small diamonds that shimmer with just a hint of sparkle. But if you're looking for something a bit more eye-catching, there's our Pavé Ripple Wedding Band. It's a diamond eternity band that flaunts form and design while not straying too far from the classics. Its soft curves look great on its own but you can stack to your heart's content too.

We turned up the volume on these styles with our Twisted Pavé Wedding Band, which features two rows of delicate round diamonds that twist around the top of this band. It's an easy-to-wear, non-traditional diamond wedding band where the diamonds are formed into tiny ridges of yellow gold (or the metal of your choosing).

Chunky Rings

While skinny band styles are certainly in, chunky gold rings are also having a moment. Make a bold statement with a chunky pavé ring that demands attention wherever you go. Our Jumbo Pavé Wedding Band is a real head-turner, for those who love to stand out from the crowd. It's a classic look with a bit of a mid-century modern feel, and a sign of your own timeless style if you're bold enough to rock one.

If you're looking for something more modern, but still a wide band that makes a statement, the Orion Pavé Combo Wedding Band is our top pick. It's the best of both worlds, giving you a double row of delicate pavé diamonds adjoined to a sold gold band. Two stackable rings in one. And that matte finish? Sold.

And if you're looking for unisex wedding bands, we love the Wide Dome Diamond Pavé Eternity Band. This androgynous ring is a wide, slightly domed band style with a subtle matte finish and can be worn on any finger. This ring is a full eternity band with diamonds all the way around.
