It consists of 58 facets and the shape is optimized to reflected the light entering the stone through the top (table). The cut surfaced in the mid 17th century and counted only 17 facets in the crown. Later, a Venetian cutter called Vincent Peruzzi, improved the shape to 33 facets in the crown.

Because of the traditional and romantic meaning it has as a symbol of love and connection we only sell natural diamonds. They have a higher value and are exclusive because natural diamonds are formed in the earth under unique conditions and are very rare, which increases their exclusivity and value. Natural diamond forms deep inside the earth as a result of tectonic pressures 100s of kilometers below the earth's surface. They, as a consequence of their growth environment, are varied and unique. Despite being more pure than other natural crystals, they contain many different impurities incorporated from the environment during the long, slow growth process. Natural diamonds also often have a unique and unpredictable brilliance and color. Diamond producers we are working with also do everything they can to mine and process their diamonds in a responsible and ethical manner.
A pavé is a style of jewelry or jewelry setting in which small diamonds or other gemstones are embedded into the metal base of a piece of jewelry, with the surface of the piece of jewelry covered with gemstones in an even pattern. The term "pavé" comes from the French word for paved, which refers to the way the gems are set closely together, giving the appearance of a paved street. A pavé setting is often used in engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets. It gives a beautiful sparkle and a luxurious look to the piece of jewelry. A pavé setting is a delicate and labour-intensive technique in which the gemstones are carefully set to make the piece of jewelery look as beautiful as possible. It is important to know that the gemstones in a pavé setting are very small and therefore more fragile than larger gemstones. It is important to properly maintain the jewelry with pavé settings and to have it checked regularly by a jeweler to prevent gemstones from falling out.
Pavé Castel Setting
Castle setting is a setting technique similar to pavé, but used for gemstones that have nearly the same diameter as the material they are set into. The sides of the stones are visible and the gold or platinum is finished into a lace-like pattern. This pattern looks like the battlements of a castle. Although it can be used to set stones that are wider than the precious metal, this should be avoided to protect the thin sides of the gems.In most cases the diameter will be one or two tenths of a milimeter less than the width of the gold or platinum.
