Pave Engagement Ring with Lab Grown Diamonds
What Is a Pavé Engagement Ring with Lab-Created Diamonds Mean?
Choosing an engagement ring is always a bit hustle but very joyful process. And today there is no need to choose only from standard classical designs because there are lots of unique and good-looking rings that are looking unusual but pretty.
Let’s look at one of such engagement rings type that is called Pavé. If you need to compare Pavé with something it looks like a sparkling wreath of ice drops – such an effect is made by precise jewelery masters, inlaid gold or platinum with dozens or even hundreds of diamonds using the Pavé technique.
WHAT IS A PAVÉ ENGAGEMENT RING SETTING?
Pavé is a frame that consists of many small gemstones arranged in such a way that the piece of jewelry appears to be paved with them that’s why it is called so. The stones in this Pavé frame are held in place by small prongs that look more like tiny beads of metal.
This method of setting gems, beloved by many, involves an almost invisible setting. Imagine how myriads of snow-white diamonds are combined in a single composition, which sparkles with millions of highlights, like snowflakes. They create a breathtaking effect, so don’t be surprised that Pavé diamonds create the most sparkling jewelry! Jewelers, who are fluent in the art of inlay work, work with minerals of any shape. Despite the fact that the most commonly used round stones, a jeweler can create a precious surface from stones of almost any cut.
Pavé technique is a complex method that needs jewler’s talent and skills. Gems need to be fixed on one level and for the round shape of a ring, it’s not a piece of cake to reach such perfection. That is why Pavé rings are always highly evaluated by experts.
WHY CHOOSE A PAVÉ ENGAGEMENT RING WITH LAB GROWN DIAMONDS?
The stones commonly used for Pavé rings are diamonds. But jewelers don’t stop only with natural gemstones. Today, it is increasingly common to see luxury jewelry made from laboratory-grown diamonds. Why are these gemstones so successful?
- In laboratory conditions, it is much easier to grow a diamond of exactly the shape and clarity that a jeweler needs.
- Accordingly, the cost of such diamonds is much more loyal, which means that the total cost of the ring will be quite affordable, even if dozens or even hundreds of stones are used for it. Compare with the price of a similar ring made from natural diamonds and you will see a significant difference.
- At the same time, even an expert will not be able to determine visually which diamonds are used in your ring.
- And also cultured diamonds have a more pronounced brilliance than natural ones.
PAVÉ SETTINGS FOR EVERY SHAPE OF LAB CREATED DIAMONDS
There are several ways to set stones using the Pave technique.
- Micro Pavé is a technique in which stones are arranged in close rows so as to completely cover the surface of the ring. It feels like there is no metal in the ring at all, but it is created from only miniature diamonds, which are held together by magic, not otherwise.
- French Pavé is also using rows of gemstones but they are set in such a way to reflect the maximum of light. For this, each set is made in V-shape.
- Petite Pavé rings are made of one row of diamonds being maximum 1.5-2.0 mm wide. It looks gorgeous and airy.
PROS AND CONS OF A PAVÉ SETTING
Let’s underline the main pros and cons of Pavé setting!
- Such ring reflects light amazingly and it looks luxurious.
- Variety of technique manners allows to choose a ring of any width and with any number of gems on it.
- Pavé setting is trendy and it looks up-to-time.
There are no much of them, actually. The main one is that you cannot enlarge the ring’s size due to a large amount of gems.
