What is a halo engagement ring?
Halo engagement rings refer to a type of stone setting. The design typically features a central stone that is surrounded by a collection of smaller diamonds creating a halo-like effect. The central stone can either be a diamond, or any other precious gemstone, including sapphires, emeralds, rubies, to name but a few.
The cut of the central stone is also dependent on preference, with styles available in everything from round and oval cuts to more angular princess or cushion styles. As well as cuts and stones, our collection offers a choice of metal band types, including halo ring designs in 18ct yellow, white, rose gold and platinum. This ensures there is a ring to suit every taste and budget available in our range.
What makes halo rings unique?
Halo rings hold a special place in our Rocks collections due to the brilliance and sparkle that they create. In addition to the liveliness of center stone, the collection of smaller diamonds help create a sparkle like no other.
Halo style engagement rings often use smaller diamond center stones as the halo can make the center diamond appear much larger, without having a significant impact on the budget. Therefore, if size matters to you or your partner when it comes to an engagement ring, a halo setting might just be the style for you.
Halo settings also look great with large diamonds or colored gemstones. Designs that feature a gemstone at their centre possess the perfect combination of luxury and lustre. While the sparkly nature of the outer layer of smaller stones remains, it is balanced by the rich, yet muted gemstone.
Halo engagement rings for every style
One of the main reasons why halo engagement rings are chosen so often by brides-to-be or their partners, is because of their diverse nature. Essentially, there is a halo ring design suitable for almost every style.
For example, for those with a more timeless or classic sense, a vintage style halo ring is available with our gemstone designs. For example, the opulence and sophistication of sapphire or emerald, paired with each stone’s history and heritage creates a style that is reminiscent of engagement ring designs of the past. While the halo detail helps to enhance the size and stature of the central stone, it also adds a stylish modern touch, bringing the traditional ring into the 21st century, and ensuring its design holds up for years.
Alternatively, for those with a more modern and glamorous sense of style, diamond halo engagement rings mounted on a white gold band are a perfect choice. The brilliance of the central stone, as well as the dazzle of the surrounding diamonds, pair perfectly with the bright and reflective band surface, creating a design with an overall shine and sparkle.
Double halo engagement rings are ideal for those who want to ensure their ring will stand out. The two layers of smaller diamonds catch the light at every angle, creating both flash and fire for a statement style. Similarly, halo rings which also feature diamond shoulder details are another way to ensure an unmissable sparkle.
