French Pave engagement rings are once again becoming very popular. The term French
Pave describes a certain look for the way the diamonds are mounted in the ring and
is very similar to a micro pave setting. The pave style creates a wonderful look that make
the ring sparkle.
As you may have guessed the word pave, or more accurately
pavé, comes from the French
and means paved. When it comes to jewelry, French Pave
refers to the illusion of the smaller diamonds being
set close together and with such precision that the
diamonds appear to be paved onto the setting. Pave set
diamonds on a ring bring a brilliant display of diamonds
to the ring making it look many times more valuable
than you actually paid for the jewelry. This is the
allure of french pave engagement rings.
What Makes French Pave Rings Special?
In order to make a french pave ring, much attention is given to the detail of the setting. A skilled craftsman will work
on the ring right from the casting to ensure the final quality of the ring. At Novori Jewelry, our craftsmen have over
30 years of experience in creating french pave rings and mounting pave diamonds. We stand behind our workmanship and products
100%. With a pave ring, much more time and effort is given to the setting of the small diamonds to ensure the ring is finished
cleanly and more importantly the smaller pave diamonds on the ring are securely mounted. Although one might think that
the smaller diamonds might be at risk, the nature of a french pave
diamond ring setting allows each diamond to secure the
diamond next to it. As long as the diamond ring does not get hit or damaged, the smaller pave diamonds will be secure.
As with any jewelry it is a good idea to have the ring setting inspected regularly to ensure all the diamonds are secure
and that the ring has indeed not been damaged.
Careful with that French
A french pave ring looks so delicate and fragile do you
really need to be more careful with this style of ring
than any other? Well yes and no. French pave
many small diamonds individually set so you should be
more careful when and where you wear the ring. You would
not want to wear a french pave ring in harsh environments
like when you are gardening or using tools.
Other than that, french pave diamond rings wear just
like any other diamond ring. If you have a french pave
ring resized, ensure that the resizing is done by a
reputable jeweler like Novori Jewelry because if the
diamond resize is not done properly, the diamonds may
become loose and may fall out. Resizing of a french
pave ring can be difficult especially if it needs to
be sized more than 1 finger size up or down. And as
always avoid cheap imports or low quality bargain brands
as some of these have diamonds that are glued in place
rather than using a prong setting to save costs. Novori
Jewelry manufactures all of it's jewelry right here
in the USA for quality purposes.
