Pavé Setting & Micro Pavé Setting

Pave Settings

Pavé Setting or Beads Setting

A pavé setting looks like a continuous surface of diamonds, but is actually made up of small diamonds set side by side into little holes, their surfaces nearly level with the setting. Each tiny diamond, weighing just a few points, is fully cut with 58 facets. Though small in size, each stone contributes to the overall, shimmering look of the design. After it is positioned in its hole, tiny bits of metal from the surface of the shank are pushed over the edge of the diamond, forming tiny beads to hold the stone in place.
Micro Pave Settings

Micro Pavé Setting

Micro Pavé is the highly precise setting of very small diamonds using a microscope. The small diamonds used in this type of setting are even smaller than the ones used in pavé setting. Because it is harder to cut and set these small diamonds, micro pavé settings tend to run more expensive than pavé settings.
