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.
This Celtic Inspired Engagement ring starts with the center stone and halo. But what makes this ring special is the diamond accented triquetras on the shoulders of the ring. That is a design element you won’t see in the mall!
What is a Halo Engagement Ring?
The typical halo rings is one with a big stone supported on a narrow, stoneless band. Imagine a round diamond circled by smaller stones on a white gold or platinum ring. “White on white on white” can impart a stunning statement that we just love. This look also works well when used with a princess- or cushion cut center stone. There’s a lot to think about when you’re looking for a halo engagement ring. But if you can’t find EXACTLY what you’re looking for, remember that we can build your engagement ring from the ground up.
This Art Deco Halo Engagement Ring isn’t your typical halo. It is inset into a v shape from the side view, but looking from the top, it appears to be a standard halo. The stones in the halo as well as beneath the center stone are bezel set, defining each stone. The band is elegantly adorned with floral scrollwork with some milgrain thrown in for good measure.
Additionally, you can choose to pavé part of the shank (the part that wraps around your finger) or leave the metal plain. Pavéed or not, this ring will give you that classic halo look. In this post, we go beyond the classic halo ring and present some Unique Halo Engagement Rings.

This 3 stone antique engagement ring hearkens back to the days of the early 1900’s, when platinum rings like this were fabricated by hand. Thank God for CAD!

But the real kicker on this ring is the milgrain, which adds an elegant design element that really calls attention to the stones, which puts this ring on our Unique Halo Engagement Rings list.

As long as it fits, almost anything could be used in place of the owls.
