A halo-setting engagement ring features an outline of diamonds or precious gemstones that encircles the center stone on a ring. The halo makes the center stone stand out, appear larger, and sparkle even more. Halo engagement ring settings are available in every style, from vintage to modern and from classic to unique, meaning you are sure to find the perfect one for the love of your life.
While the traditional types of halo settings have the circle of diamonds directly around the center stone facing upward, some designs include what’s called a hidden halo. These hidden halo engagement rings have a circle of diamonds underneath the center stone, sometimes facing out and other times facing up, adding an intricate detail for more glamour and sparkle. Hidden halo engagement rings traditionally have a round center stone, but just as with other halo diamond engagement rings, the center stone shape is often customizable.
Whether you know exactly what you’re looking for or aren’t sure where to begin, as you shop for the perfect halo engagement ring, you’ll find that you have a few decisions to make about the ring.
Halo engagement rings are as varied as the individuals wearing them, giving you plenty of opportunities to find the perfect one for yourself or your loved one. The most classic halo-setting engagement ring is a round center stone with a round halo, set on a band of white, yellow, or rose gold. But that’s only the beginning.
Split shank halo engagement rings are quite popular, and they feature a band that splits as it nears the center stone, offering additional beauty and intricate details. Split shank halo engagement rings often have bands adorned with diamonds for more sparkle and elegance and can be topped with a diamond in almost any shape.
A twisted halo engagement ring has a band that appears to weave in and out of itself, mimicking the image of an infinity symbol and signifying your everlasting love. Twisted halo engagement rings can hold a diamond of nearly any shape, although round is the most common.
Of all the halo-setting engagement rings, the Double halo engagement rings are perhaps the most glamorous and glorious. They are exactly what their name implies—a double halo, meaning two rows of diamonds surround the center stone. This style makes the center stone look substantially larger than it is, and the brilliance and fire that these rings reflect is truly remarkable.
After the setting, the shape and color of your center stone are the biggest decisions that will directly impact the overall look of the ring.
Round halo engagement rings and oval halo engagement rings are the most common. The roundness of the stones make them easy to encircle with smaller diamonds and offers a simple way to elevate and enhance the size and sparkle of the center stone.
After those two center stone shapes, the setting gets a little more intricate. Cushion halo engagement rings are beautiful and sophisticated, while pear halo engagement rings are elegant and stunning. A princess-cut halo engagement ring is another highly sought-after style, as the round stones play beautifully against the princess-cut center stone for a gorgeous overall look.
For a more dramatic look, one would choose a diamond with more extreme points in its shape, like marquise, and then encircle that diamond with a halo of smaller diamonds for a bold and luxurious halo engagement ring. You may also opt for a unique look with a double halo oval engagement ring, which is sure to offer a great deal of brilliant shine and breathtaking sophistication.
When it comes to the color of your diamond, customizable options are always available at Roman Malakov. Although most of our clientele opt for white, colorless diamonds for their center stones, others prefer fancy colored diamonds surrounded by smaller colorless diamonds. Many of our vintage halo engagement rings feature stunning yellow, pink, or black diamonds, along with adornments of their colorless counterparts. Some antique halo engagement rings may have gemstones in the supporting role, while a colorless diamond is set atop the ring as the focal point.
The next thing to consider is the number of halos on your halo engagement ring setting. While most rings have one halo, some designs allow for two or even three to increase the brilliance and overall sparkle of the halo engagement ring. You may also wish to look at halo engagement ring settings where the halo stones are set in different ways. Some halos are set with prongs while others are pave-set. Some are even framed in metal for another touch of distinction.
When it comes to halo engagement rings, or any type of jewelry in general, you also need to think about the type of metal that you want the ring to be made of. White gold may be the most popular choice for most halo diamond engagement rings, but you may prefer yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum. Some halo engagement ring settings may also allow a two-tone ring, which is a combination of metal types, such as both rose and white gold. Metal choice is important for personal style, but it also plays a part in how much the center stone and halo stones sparkle. If you’re uncertain about which metal to select for your halo engagement ring, you can discuss your options with the expert staff at Roman Malakov.
Halo diamond engagement rings are by far the most popular choice among all of our halo engagement ring settings. However, when you’re looking for a unique yet stunning engagement ring, you may consider including some gemstones in your halo engagement ring for an added touch of exclusivity and beauty. As mentioned above, you can select a variety of colored diamonds besides the classic white diamond, but you can also include sapphires and other precious gemstones in your halo engagement ring setting.
Selecting the perfect halo engagement ring should be enjoyable and exciting. We are passionate about helping our patrons make the best design choices when it comes to their jewelry, and we would love to help you pick out the perfect halo engagement ring setting for that special someone in your life.
