REVIEW: James Allen’s Petite Pavé Cathedral Setting Looks Amazing


The James Allen Petite Pavé Cathedral is a stunning and sophisticated pavé setting that is perfect for any engagement ring. This setting features a delicate and refined design that is accented with sparkling pavé diamonds, which adds an extra touch of elegance and glamour to your engagement ring.


One of the great things about the Petite Pavé Cathedral is that it pairs well with any diamond cut. Whether you have a round, princess, cushion, emerald, or oval diamond, your center stone will look stunning while being elevated in the nice four prong head. This setting is a great choice for those who want to add a bit of sparkle to their engagement ring without going over the top. One of the strong points of this setting that we love is its ability to showcase your diamond’s beautiful geometry by elevating it and making it visible from all sides, while still providing that extra sparkle from the pavé diamonds.


The Petite Pavé Cathedral setting from James Allen costs $1,230.

In terms of value, this setting is a great choice when compared to other cathedral pavé settings. At only $1,230, it provides the same style and appearance as more expensive settings from James Allen’s collection. Here are two settings that look very similar, but cost a bit more:

Common Prong Setting (0.34 Carat Weight) (#Promo)

Common Prong Setting (0.45 Carat Weight) (#Promo)

We believe the Petite Pavé Cathedral really captures the same look as these more expensive settings, without the extra cost. Here is a video we made comparing both the Petite Pavé Cathedreal and the Common Prong (0.34 Carat Weight).
