The small stones in micro pave fine jewelry provide great stylistic flexibility leading to delicate and intricate designs of micro pave engagement rings that is not possible with larger stones.
Micro pave engagement rings are delicate designer fashions with spectacular sparkle and flair that appeal to discriminating couples interested in unique designs. These special rings produce more glitter and allure than their pave engagement rings cousins because they use the smallest possible diamonds to achieve a uniform sparkle on the ring’s surface. The individual stones are so small, they blend together smoothly and present a truly extravagant image. The number of tiny diamonds in a micro pave design can range from 30 to more than 70 and are often measured in total carat weight (rarely more than 0.75 carat total weight, not counting the center stone).
Here are some thing so to keep in mind when comparing micro pave engagement rings:
- Glitter – Seek out designs where the sparkle of the pave diamonds provide a good balance with your center stone. Think about the quality of your center stone so that it is the star while the pave diamonds provide a beautiful stage.
- Balance – If a single line of stones is used for the band, it may seem disproportionately narrow compared to the center stone, particularly if the center stone is also surrounded by diamond accents.
- Color – The color of the micro pave diamonds should be consistent along the entire surface of the ring; diamonds with poor color are more likely to stand out.
- Smooth Surface – Because the diamonds used in micro pave are so small, the ring’s surface is smoother than with larger pave settings. The surface of the ring should be uniform, with no single stone jutting out further than the others.
- Less Visible Metal – Smaller stones can fit together more closely, micro pave ring mountings should have less metal showing through the diamond encrustation.
