Shopping for an engagement ring is quite an undertaking. It's a big investment, after all, and no matter your budget, the number of options can be overwhelming. There are countless settings to pick from, numerous gemstones, various metals, the list goes on and on. And if you don't know what you're looking for, the task can become all the more daunting.
That's where we come in. We've created countless guides of engagement ring styles so that your bauble search is a bit more organized and streamlined. By honing in on a single design (for instance, today's focus is pavé engagement rings), you can more easily learn what speaks to you and what doesn't.
Put simply, pavé is a type of setting in which small diamonds line the band and, in turn, highlight the center stone. According to Teresa Panico, head of marketing at Material Good, this is one of the most requested styles, as it adds "the perfect amount of accent sparkle without overwhelming the center diamond."
There are pros and cons, of course (which you can read all about here), but for anyone who loves endless sparkle, a pavé engagement ring is a good call. Read on to see and shop our favorites.
