The pavé is a bead setting in which adjacent gemstones share a bead. In the pavé setting, the surface appears to be paved with diamonds or other stones set closely together. Our pave jewelry is crafted with a three- to six-prong bead setting to secure each stone. This famous setting is perfect for those who desire extra sparkle. Artisans use 14-karat gold, white gold, and sterling silver plated with rhodium to give them a brilliant gleam.
