I just posted this is rockytalky but I think maybe I should have posted here.

I was just wondering if anybody had ever seen a band that had micro pave in sapphires. I keep trying to think of a way to add sapphires into both my ering and wedding band and wondered if this even could be done. What are your thoughts on what it looks like?

Never seen one with micropave - but this came to mind. BTW - it's late 1930s by Suzanne Belperron.

I can see no technical reason to keep it from being done. I''m not sure about the look, though.

It's doable but not a classic look which would account for not being commonly sold/seen. There's also the element of matching up the colour of all the melees so you won't get a splotchy blue ring. I would prefer something timeless and stick to the safer route of a surprise sapphire.

Juan @ Van-Graff has done some work with sapphire and diamond pave - I''ve liked these for years. I don''t remember seeing any solid sapphire pave or micropave.

I''ve seen some lovely sapphire pave pieces (such as flower brooches) but I haven''t seen a band yet. Coloured stone pave is just stunning, if it is well done and colour matched.

...and that''s usually the case of the pieces made by famous jewellery houses, whose works cost a small fortune. Otherwise, there are just too many things to keep in mind - the stones'' hue (not to end up with both, teal blue and violet blue in the same piece, unless that''s the designer''s idea), the level of brilliance (to avoid having "dead" stones among the sparkly ones), matching for size (to avoid having too much metal between the stones), matching for clarity (look under "level of brilliance") etc. That''s why most jewellers stick to diamond pave as there are less variables to think about.

These earrings have Blue pave. I'm not sure if they are Sapphire or Aqua, hard to tell from the description, but I love the look!

Those are gorgeous. Are they set in black gold or some weird thing? It doesn''t look light light metal between the stones.

HAHA You quoted me before I changed it... Here is what it says: 18 karat blackened white gold earrings, set with aquamarines, blue sapphires, lavender spinel and diamonds

So yup... you were right Neatfreak!

Lol. Sorry. I thought they must be black gold. Gorgeous! I don''t usually love sapphire pave set in light metals because unless it is done exceptionally well it looks weird with the contrast. But that black gold is gorgeous!

Some suggestions; HERE is something obviously not of high quality, and HERE is something that is, but is also priced accordingly.

I think sapphire pave in your ER or WB would be lovely! :)

I was given a ring from my hubby that has an asscher cut light blue spinel with a diamond halo and blue sapphire pave set band, I love the sapphire pave-something a little different than the norm. I can''t remember where he purchased it from. I''ll let you know when I find out.

Here are some from the M. Khordipour website. Many of these are 'antique style' reproductions, but there are some beautiful combinations in there, most not necessarily pave but french cuts....

ETA: if you go to the website linked above, and pick the 'bands and eternity rings' section, there are a few in there as well, starting at about page 10 onwards.

I'm not sure if this is what you have in mind, but this Kirk Kara set is one of my all-time favorites. I think the band could be worn with other rings and look stunning. Link

I ordered this ring for my .63 ct. RB diamond. It has a sapphire halo. Sorry I don''t have photos yet of my ring yet, this is just a manufacturer photo.
