Choosing the right setting is fundamental when choosing a ring or other jewellery. It does not only determine the style of your jewellery, but also how it is worn and the amount of looking after it needs. Do you have an elegant style, and are you looking for jewellery with several diamonds next to one other? Then the pavé setting, with small stones set next to one other, is right for you. It also matches well with other settings. BAUNAT explains why you should choose a pavé setting.


What is a pavé setting?

With a pavé setting, smaller stones are placed close to one other and held in place by small prongs which look like beads. The stones cover either a part or the entire the ring.

The eternity ring, for example, is covered all the way round in diamonds, which are fully incorporated, or else come into their own in a particular way.
