Our Top Preset Halo Engagement Diamond Rings

What is a halo diamond engagement ring?

A halo engagement ring is a ring with a specific setting where the main stone is encircled by a ring of round micro-diamonds. The circular pattern of micro-diamonds is also called pavé. Pavé is a jewelry term used to refer to a pattern of gemstones placed closely together in order to create a field of brilliance.

What are the benefits of halo diamond engagement rings?

The number one benefit of a halo engagement ring is that it can make the center stone look larger. As a result, you will be able to save money when choosing the center stone. It has been said the center stone looks up to one-half carat larger with a more intense sparkle. Another benefit of a halo setting is protection. Surrounding stones will offer a buffer for your center stone, which may get damaged with wear.

What should one consider before buying a halo engagement ring? 

There are so many things to consider before buying a halo engagement ring, so let us break it down for you. First, get familiar with the halo styles that are available. There are four you could choose from: 

A Plain Shank Halo ring, ideal for someone who likes a more classic approach.
A Split Shank Halo ring has a band that splits and creates more real estate for accent diamonds.
A Double Halo ring where there are two halo settings around the center stone.
A Pave Halo ring has accent diamonds that extend halfway down the band for both dazzle and elegance.

After considering the style of halo you would like, it is all about fitting your personalities the best. There are millions of ways to personalize your perfect ring. Preset engagement rings are a great way to find a unique setting that reflects their personality without having to over-analyze each step. You can find preset diamond rings with a flower arrangement, with an angular halo that draws the eyes up and down, with different color gemstones, and set with different metals. 

What diamond shapes look best with a halo diamond ring setting?

Although you can have many variations of a halo engagement ring, there is a setting that seems to be more popular. Round and cushion cut diamond shapes tend to look best with a halo ring setting due to their highly customizable properties.
