Pave stands for a style of jewelry setting in which numerous small diamonds are mounted close together to create a glistening diamond crust that covers the whole piece of jewelry and obscures the metal under it. This can either be a single row, as a plurality of rows side by side. In this way, this looks like a continuous surface of sparkling diamonds. Because these diamonds are placed close together, it looks like the ring is totally made out of diamonds. Putting small diamonds in pave requires meticulous handiwork. A gem can exist of either entirely tiny pave diamonds, or is also often used in the binder of a solitaire ring.
