Available in yellow, white, rose gold and platinum, this classic setting can take on a variety of looks depending on your choice of metal and diamond shape.

Set with a larger diamond – and the relative size just seems to pop even more. Here are a few examples from James Allen’s site. But first…
What is French-Cut Pavé
A pavé piece of jewelry is where small diamonds are set into the metal in a way in which very little metal is visible, creating a brilliant, sparkling piece. There are several ways to do this, including channel-set, riviera pavé, and French Cut pavé. The “French Cut” pavé technique produces a finished piece with a minimal metal look. The ring-maker hand carves small “v” shapes into the metal of the band and sets small diamonds into each one, creating a ring with minimal appearance of metal and a distinct profile.
