What is a halo engagement ring?
In ring terminology, ‘halo’ refers to a type of stone setting. The design features a large central stone, which is then surrounded by a thin row of pavé stones. The design is most commonly associated with the Art Deco movement making halo rings the perfect choice for anyone seeking a vintage style engagement ring.
Halo rings are available in a number of designs and with different gemstone centres or surroundings, however the most common style is one that is completely made up of diamonds.
What makes halo engagement rings different to other styles?
At first glance, a halo engagement ring is undeniably unique. One of the most noticeable differences between a halo ring and other styles is the amount of sparkle they showcase. The collection of smaller stones around the outer edge of the centre diamond or gemstone catch the light in such a unique way, creating an eye-catching effect.
A halo engagement ring is a guaranteed way to capture the attention and heart of your partner.
Additionally, halo settings are a great way to enhance the size of an engagement ring. As the pavé stones sit closely around the central stone, they naturally make it look bigger than it actually is. Therefore, halo engagement rings are also popular among those wanting the impact and drama of a large solitaire diamond ring, on a smaller budget.
