Founded in 1983 by award winning jewelry designer Michael Endlich, Pavé Fine
Jewelry Design is the premier fine jewelry store in the East Bay Area for custom
designs
. Pavé also carries a curated selection of fine jewelry consistent with Pavé’s artistic vision and quality of craftsmanship.

Reflecting on the young man who discovered a passion for jewelry making in 1976, Michael is grateful for the decades-long, heartfelt journey of creating unique pieces of art that celebrate special moments, relationships, personal milestones, and the sheer love of beauty. Michael’s designs are inspired by his life-long meditation on nature’s endless patterns and colors woven into the personal symbolism and stories shared by each client. A guiding principle for Michael is the power of jewelry to convey feeling and meaning.

Michael's artistic vision, along with the impeccable craftsmanship of master goldsmiths-jeweler duo Yas and Roberta, and Pavé’s talented team of designers have created museum quality and legacy pieces that can be passed down through generations.

Michael’s designs have been recognized by the American Gem Trade
Association
 (AGTA) Spectrum Awards
, and have won 18 awards to date,
even garnering the honor of having a winning piece on the AGTA national magazine’s cover.  

Deeply connected to generations of families in the Bay Area community, Pavé has been honored with the Best of the East Bay award frequently over the past 25 years.

Ethically and environmentally conscious, Pavé is committed to sourcing only conflict- free diamonds as well as using recycled metals, and regularly gives back to the local community and nonprofits, particularly to environmental causes that strive for a sustainable and life-affirming future for all.


​​​​​​​Pavé [pah-vay] - French in origin, this jewelry-making term describes a style of setting many diamonds or gemstones grouped closely together in a manner that resembles cobblestones, i.e., a paved road. 


The road to over 35 years in business is paved with the satisfaction and memories of our countless happy clients.
