The Square Halo Engagement Rings We Love Year After Year
Engagement rings with halos have been popular for a while, in square and round arrangements. Diamond halos have the obvious advantage of making the center stone look larger, as well as adding sparkle to the overall look. This year, people are springing for unique halos that offer a new take on the popular style. 2017 trends have demanded more and more unique halo rings, inspiring halos with sharper corners; combinations of ring styles like split shank and halo; vintage design variations; double halos, and more.
Because of the intricacy and sheer number of stones involved in a halo engagement ring, white gold or platinum is a common choice. The “white” color allows the diamonds to stand out without overwhelming the eye. However, more adventurous couples may choose a yellow or rose gold band which spins the halo trend into a personal design.
Square halo engagement rings are particularly popular, with their geometric center stones and brilliant cuts. These rings are desirable for the qualities already described, and for the variety of design combinations they offer. The most popular diamond cuts for square halo rings are princess, cushion and emerald cuts. These cuts leave room for stylistic variations—for example, rounded halo corners, or sharp ones. Between the details of the band, the halo, and the actual center stone, couples are sure to find a unique, beautiful halo ring.

These square halo settings pair a variety of center stones, from cushions to round and emerald cuts, with a more angular ring of accent stones. The result can be a playful back and forth between romantic curves and bold angles, or you can lean completely into the angular look for a more architectural design. We’ve included some of our favorites below.
