What is a Halo Engagement Ring?

There are a few things to consider with this gorgeous design to find the ring that's right for you. A halo ring features a frame of gemstones that surrounds a center stone. Many love this style because of its ability to enlarge the look of the center diamond or gemstone. A high-carat diamond can look even larger, and a smaller stone can look much bigger with a halo.

There are a few things to consider with this gorgeous design to find the ring that's right for you.

Color

  • A white diamond paired with more white diamonds is a classic look. But a color diamond or gemstone is an exciting alternative for the center stone. Alternatively, color diamonds or gems make a gorgeous halo for a white diamond center.

Center Stone Shape

  • A halo can add a bold look to a fancy-shaped center stone. Shapes with defined points, like pear and marquise are softened when wrapped in a halo.

Number of Halos

  • Choose a ring with one halo for a more subdued look. But for extra drama, two or more halos is the perfect choice. Some designs even have metal frames around the stones in the halo for a distinctive design.

Metal Choice

  • Like white diamonds, white gold is a popular choice for halo engagement rings.
  • The color of the metal complements the diamonds and can make them appear larger.
  • Depending on your personal taste or the color of your diamonds or gemstones, yellow or rose gold are gorgeous options. And if you can't decide, consider a two-tone design!
