Beyond Diamonds: Halo Engagement Rings

Halos are depicted as radiant circles of light surrounding the heads of divine or sacred figures. When a halo of gemstones encircles a central stone on an engagement ring, it creates an illusion of a larger and more brilliant center stone while also refracting light and adding visual appeal and luxury to the ring. Moreover, the circular frame subtly stands for the concepts of eternity and unity.

Within our collection of halo engagement rings, different halo designs highlight the central gemstone by drawing attention to its shine and inherent luster. Ranging from classic round halo engagement rings to modern alternatives such as heart or princess cut halo engagement rings, each halo is sure to highlight your love and commitment to one another.

Halo Engagement Rings FAQs

What is a halo engagement ring?

A halo engagement ring is a type of ring where a central gemstone is surrounded by a circle, or ‘halo’, of smaller diamonds or other gemstones such as moissanites or lab-diamonds. This halo setting is a popular choice because thanks to smaller stones shining around the center stone, the overall sparkle and brilliance of the ring is enhanced.

What is a hidden halo engagement ring?

It is a variation of the traditional halo design. In a hidden halo engagement ring, smaller diamonds are tucked underneath the main gemstone and can only be seen from the side view of the ring. This style adds a feeling of surprise to the ring.

Are halo engagement rings still popular?

Yes. Due to their enduring and classic design, halo rings are still one of the most popular and preferred engagement ring designs.

How many carats does a halo add?

It depends on the size and number of smaller diamonds in the halo. However, a halo can add approximately 0.10 to 0.50 carats to the ring.
