Welcome to the engagement ring files. During this series we’re investigating what you need to know about the various engagement ring setting options. Today we’re highlighting halo rings.
The halo ring derives from the popular art deco style rings of the 1920s. The design is both geometric and intricate and gives off a real ‘wow’ factor.
What does a halo ring look like?
In a halo ring, a central round gemstone is surrounded by a band of smaller round gemstones, resembling a halo. It often features diamonds, particularly for the smaller ‘halo’ stones, but this is also an excellent design choice for other precious gems.
There are no official specifications about how the gems must be set in a halo engagement ring. Some halo rings are constructed with prongs, while others use bezels. Prongs are often the preferred option as they hold your gems in securely while also allowing plenty of light to pass through them.
Is a halo ring right for you?
A halo ring is likely to be right for you if you (or your beloved!) adore traditional styling and want a ring that will really make an impact. This is a statement option that is likely to garner attention, making it the perfect ring choice for the style conscious!
The construction process of a halo ring can sometimes compromise the natural brilliance of the stones. If the cut and clarity of your gems is the biggest priority for you, a simpler cut might be a preferred choice.
Halo engagement rings are a beautiful option and are a great way to get a lot of visual impact in return for your spend.
