Our Unique Halo Engagement Rings

Unique Halo Engagement Rings

The halo engagement ring first appeared in the 20s, when the style known as Art Deco rose to prominence.  They were all the rage for awhile and then their popularity waned.  Their current return to fashion has propelled halo rings into second place behind the classic solitaire as the most popular engagement ring style. Halo rings can be almost considered as classic as the solitaire, but our Unique Halo Engagement Rings come with a twist!

The halo ring style offers a wide variety of options for creating big diamond looks with smaller center stones, as well as ways to personalize and customize your engagement ring.  A halo ring is a setting that encircles a larger, center gemstone in a row of round gemstones. These prong and sometimes bezel set stones flash with light and focus the attention of the viewer back to the center stone, drawing people’s eyes to your ring. A larger center diamond can look enormous in a halo setting. But  1/2 or even 1.3 carat diamonds can look, by some estimates, as much as a half a carat larger when set in a halo. So no matter what your budget, a halo engagement ring will give you a bigger bang for your buck.

The halo setting allows for endless possibilities when it comes to pairing it with a wedding band. Whether you prefer a simple, classic band or a more intricate design, there are plenty of options to complement your halo engagement ring.

One option is to choose a wedding band that features a similar halo design. This creates a cohesive look and adds to the overall sparkle and brilliance of the ring set. Another option is to opt for a plain band that allows the halo engagement ring to take center stage. This minimalist approach creates a beautiful contrast and allows the halo ring to truly shine.

Why Halo Engagement Rings Are So Popular

Halo engagement rings have become incredibly popular in recent years. Their unique design features a central diamond or gemstone surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds, creating a stunning and eye-catching effect. This style has captured the hearts of many soon-to-be brides, and it’s not hard to see why.

One of the main reasons why halo engagement rings have gained such popularity is their ability to make the center stone appear larger. The halo of smaller diamonds creates an optical illusion, making the main diamond or gemstone appear bigger and more dazzling. This is a major draw for couples who want a ring that really stands out and makes a statement.

Another factor contributing to the popularity of halo engagement rings is their versatility. The halo design can be customized to suit different tastes and preferences. Whether you prefer a classic round halo or a more unique shape, like a cushion or pear, there are endless options to choose from. This allows couples to find a ring that perfectly reflects their individual style and personality.

In addition to their visual appeal, halo engagement rings also offer practical benefits. The halo of smaller diamonds provides extra protection to the center stone, helping to prevent chips and scratches. This is especially important for those with an active lifestyle or who work with their hands. The added security and durability of a halo setting make it a practical choice for everyday wear.
