Diamonds Engagement Rings Jewelry

Diamond Engagement Ring Trends of 2011

Celebrities and consumers alike are opting for pave and bead set diamond rings this season. Pave or micro-pave, the French word for paved, is a technique in which small loose diamonds are set very closely together. Tiny beads or prongs are used to hold each diamond in place, which creates the illusion that the diamonds appear free-standing with no metal visible. White gold or platinum is often used to minimize the appearance of the metal so that all you see are diamonds, however yellow gold can also add an elegant and chic look to a custom ring or an engagement ring.

Pave ring settings can feature a single row of diamonds while others contain multiple rows of diamonds leading up to the center certified diamond. Pave settings come in either half-pave, where the diamonds only go half way around the band, or full pave, where the diamonds go completely around the band (many opt for half-pave since the diamonds are less likely to rub against the other fingers than full-pave). The center stone in the ring is typically set above the encrusted diamonds and gives the illusion of size against the smaller pave set stones in the band.

Brilliance offers a large variety of pave set engagement rings and wedding bands to fit any style or budget. Round and princess cut diamonds are the most commonly used as center stones in a pave ring setting yet any diamond shape can be used.
