Halo rings are a gorgeous and opulent way to maximize the brilliance and look of your diamond ring. The central diamond, usually round, is surrounded by a ‘halo’ of smaller, often pave, diamonds. The overall effect is then one large diamond, with multiple shapes and cuts to reflect the light.
The halo ring first came to prominence in the 1920s, and indeed there is something distinctly Art Deco about the style. However, rings with a surrounded central stone, often resembling a flower, date back to the 1700s and 1800s.
Today, halo rings are the second most popular style for engagement rings behind the classic solitaire diamond. Just because they’re called halo rings, the central diamond and its surround doesn’t have to be round, square and contrasting shapes look just as effective. A halo ring is a clever way to maximize the look of a smaller central stone. It’s also worth remembering that the central and halo stones don’t have to be diamonds, consider contrasting colors as well.

A halo diamond ring takes this look to the next level, surrounding and sealing your promise with the brilliance of a collection of diamonds.

Gold diamond ring
Gold will always be the ultimate symbol of luxury and status, and it’s also a perfect metal for jewelry due to its resistance to tarnishing and malleability. Against diamonds the contrast is a timeless classic, pairing the beauty of gold with the strength and brilliance of diamonds. The halo setting only maximizes this, setting the opulent cluster against the shine of the gold.
The Misti range showcases the best of gold diamond rings with a halo setting. The band is thin with squared-off edges, while the central stone and its halo are perfectly round. The prong setting is white gold to match the color of the diamonds and maximize the brilliance. For an added touch of luxury the shoulders are lined with pave diamonds. For a touch of old world glamor, consider replacing the central stone with a sapphire. The blue against the diamond halo and the gold gives a classic vintage look.
Eternity rings symbolize forever with their row of neverending diamonds lining the outside of the ring band. They represent a milestone in a relationship or can just be given as a gift to show your eternal love. When coupled with a halo setting, the brilliance of eternity rings is unmatched. The Mildred is the ultimate expression of this with three rows of pave diamonds, a large central stone and a double halo; the ultimate way to say forever.
While a solitaire ring means it features a single diamond, you can accessorize and add to this with a halo whilst retaining the simplicity of one central stone. Our Anca ring features a perfectly round diamond, with its halo setting set slightly lower to showcase the solitaire. The band is plain, in the metal of your choice, to allow the brilliance of the diamonds to be the main event as you ask the ultimate question of your loved one.
