What Are Pavé Set Diamonds?

Pavé set diamonds, or a pavé setting, comes from the French word for “paved.” This is because when small diamonds, called melee diamonds, are placed one after another in a pavé setting, they resemble paved or cobblestone streets.

Remember that pavé refers to the setting. The diamonds used in a pavé setting are called melee diamonds.
