Pave diamond rings are very distinctive and uniquely designed. They have tiny diamonds that are tightly and closely packed together that there is no band that is visible.

The prices of diamond pave rings vary according to the style, type of diamonds, the gold or platinum used in the band and the grades.

Quality

The quality of your ring is of great importance. Going for a pave diamond ring is proof enough that you are looking for quality and nothing less. High quality rings have the diamonds placed closely together showing very little metal. If the ring has its diamonds placed far apart then it is sub standard. High quality rings will have its stones evenly spaced to create a harmonious and continuous flow. This flow is what gives the ring the beauty and brilliance that it is supposed to have.

Sizing

Like every other jewelery, a ring has to be fitting your finger comfortably. Pave diamond rings should not be sized up or down. Instead have your ring made in your exact size. Sizing the ring up and down loosens up the diamonds and they may start falling off with time. This is because these stones are either pronged or just pushed into the gold. You may not be able to get your ring instantly since it takes time to have your own ring made but in the long run it will be worth the waiting.

Clarity

You are supposed to see the different stones clearly with the naked eye. If you can’t tell the difference among the tiny stones then do not go for that ring. If clarity is low the fire and brilliance of the ring is also affected. Remember, you are buying this type ring for its fire and brilliance. It is recommended that you do not buy a ring whose clarity range is below I1. Any range above this is good quality and will give you what you want.

The color

You need to choose the color of the gold that your diamonds will be set in. when you go to the jeweler ensure that if your stones are to be set on white gold then they should be color J and above. Why is this? Any color after J will be showing a yellow tint on a white gold setting.

The cut

The cut of your diamond ring determines its fire and brilliance. Ensure that the cut of every diamond is clear and perfect to get the best performance of your ring. If the cut is perfect the other characteristics are usually perfect too.

The weight

This should not be a big concern since these pave diamond rings are quite light despite the fact that they contain a multitude of tiny diamonds with 57 facets each.

There you have it. If you need to buy one of these rings then go and look for the best based on the above information. Remember that you may need to send the ring to the jeweler once in a while to ensure that the stones are seated firmly otherwise they may start falling off.
