Pure perfection: pave diamond setting. Imagine the awe invoked by a wholly encrusted surface with barely a glimpse of precious metal in sight. Simply a shimmering ‘street’ cobbled by loose diamonds.
Elusive elegance is the pavé setting trademark. Oftentimes wholesale diamond seekers learn of this gorgeous setting for the first time when browsing jewellers. Yet such distinctive diamond delight soon scintillates prospective purchasers with its unique charms. Particularly as the petite diamonds used in pave setting do not attract the princely price tags of other gem counterparts. So even wholesale buyers on a strict budget can revel in a gorgeously glittering diamond statement. Just another perk of pave mounting.
Pave: painstaking work for diamond setters
Pave diamond setting demands enduring craftsman patience and skill. Such shimmering diamond surface is achieved through the setting of many petite round diamond tightly together. Each diamond must appear identical in size and weigh only a few points. Furthermore, every stone is cut with 58 facets and held fast by miniature prongs. Yet to the naked eye only exquisitely miniscule areas of precious metal is visible. Set in pave styling these tiny pieces of loose diamond preciousness assail the eye with glorious sparkle.
Pave diamonds prove all that glitters is not gold
Splendid glow is the proud boast of pave diamond jewellery. Yet minimisation of precious metal encasement is a must for pave diamonds to truly shine. So yellow gold banding is not favoured as it counteracts such intricacy. Certainly yellow gold bands can still display pave diamonds beautifully. Yet the distinctive hue and strength of the metal band may overshadow the trademark pave diamond glisten. Wholesale diamond buyers will get premium sheen from their pave settings with bands in:
- White gold
