Pave:

This setting is used for numerous diamonds set together in a tight cluster or group, with minimal metal showing. Giving the impression that the piece of jewelry is entirely 'paved' with stones. The settings are either created by use of tiny prongs that hold the jewels on both sides, or are crafted by scooping beads of precious metal out to hold the diamonds in place.
