Hidden Pavé Accents
If you love the idea of a timeless look and intricate, subtle details, a ring with hidden pavé accents could be the one.
Pavé settings consist of many tiny gemstones that are attached by small metal droplets. This gives the appearance of a surface that has been “paved” with gemstones.
Hidden pavé settings feature these tiny stones mounted beneath the center setting so they’re not seen right away. You’ll have to study the ring and look more closely to see the details.
Pavé settings don’t have to be hidden! These tiny diamonds add extra sparkle and beauty to the band of the ring. If they’re added to the sides and top of the band, micro-pavé settings make a ring glimmer from all angles.

Diamonds that Don’t Fit the Mould

Sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and other vibrant and richly colored stones make charming accents and also make diamonds stand out even more.

Stacked rings are more than one band that stack together to form a stunning arrangement of shiny metal. These bands add visual interest as well as size impact.
In addition to stacked bands, some designers have created ring styles that are single bands but have the appearance of a stacked ring set. These might be more practical for some who need something more simple but want the look of multiple rings.
A halo setting encircles a center stone in micro-pavé or pavé set stones. This gives the visual effect of a much larger center stone. It can make smaller center stones look up to a half carat bigger. It can also make center stones that are already large appear huge.
Halos aren’t just for traditional diamond cuts, however. This year halo designs are getting more creative. Delicate details and unique shapes are winning over the more common cuts.
