Using Pave Engagement Ring Settings To Wow The Love Of Your Life!
Ladies just love pave engagement ring settings as the ring is covered wall to wall with diamonds and this just gives new meaning to the word bling!
Pah-vey is how we pronounce this style of ring. The diamonds are so closely placed on the ring that it actually looks like one solid diamond. Tiny prongs or beads hold the diamonds in place and this is totally unlike bezel or channel settings. This happens in such a way that very little metal can be seen and it gives the appearance that the diamonds are standing on their own. Platinum or white gold is used most often in order to further reduce the appearance of metal on the ring. Some people like yellow gold as it makes the ring really look elegant.
When used as an engagement ring, many smaller ones surround a bigger ring. Most often, this is in an elevated tiffany setting. Center stones are normally princess and round; the reason for this is that the other stones add enough class to the ring without the center stone having to be too fancy. Most often, the center stone is a gemstone or a colored diamond and these stones are set with prongs. Bezel settings are also used as the further accentuate the center stone apart from the setting.
The pave setting extends totally around the ring circumference, whilst a half pave setting covers only the top section of the ring. Brides to be as these are more comfortable for continuous wearing often wear the half pave designs more often.
Pave settings have three primary designs. A simple thin band with one row of diamonds. The diamonds are the same width as the band and this makes the ring look like pure diamond. To top this off a center stone is placed on the band.
Secondly comes a wider band that is three-dimensional. Additionally to a single row of diamonds, there are rows of diamonds situated angularly to the center row. This adds width to the ring with a curve or bow that adds extra texture.
Design number three is a plain band with no center stone. These rings are often used as anniversary or eternity bands, as elegance is accentuated with this design. There may or may not be a center ring, either way sophistication is not lost with this design. These are just some of the features of pave settings.
