Charm Bracelet Diva's Word of the Week : Pave'

October 26, 2009

Pave': pronounced pa-vay, is French for "pavement", a technique whereby the suraface of the jewelry is covered, or paved, with stones. The technique displays an illusionary bigger look because its multiple gemstones are usually combined with other types of gemstone settings to add more effect and beauty. The stones are set so closely together that no metal shows. The pave' setting is best for round, oval, princess, emerald, square and baguette cut gemstones.  Go to and for some more info about pave' jewelry.

Pave' jewelry is quite trendy these days.  Lucky Magazine's November issue showcases some spectacular pave' pieces in its Fall Jewelry Guide.  (More on that in a later post.)  They came up with pave' pieces for all budgets.  My favorite is the goldtone "Fireball" necklace, $30.00 from Grayce by Molly Sims,

I would love to see a gorgeous pave' bracelet.  If you have a photo, please send it on.  Ciao for now.
