Halo engagement rings take their name from a “halo” of smaller diamonds that circle the ring. These elegant and visually striking designs are popular because they emphasize the center stone and pack a generous amount of sparkle.
What are Halo Engagement Rings?
Halo engagement rings are easily one of the most popular ring settings in recent years. This eye-catching style takes its name from the elegant composition of a center stone surrounded by a ring — or halo — of pavé diamonds.
By surrounding the center stone with sparkling round or micro pavé diamonds or gems, the light from the outer ring reflects off the center stone, making it seem larger. While the halo engagement ring has become incredibly popular in recent years, the style dates back to the Georgian Era in 18th century Europe. At the time, stones that were only slightly smaller than the center stone were used to achieve this impressive effect.
In the 19th century, the style evolved to include a colored center stone with a round pavé of diamonds. The beauty of the composition was in how it mimicked a flower, with the center stone acting as the pistil and the pavé standing in for the petals. However, the modern halo ring owes a lot to the Art Deco movement of the 1920s. The concentric circles surrounding the center stones were a perfect fit for an aesthetic that relied heavily on geometric patterns and symmetry.
Today, the reemergence of the halo engagement rings borrows from all of these influences while mixing in contemporary design, creating rings that look at once classic and modern.
Why Halo Engagement Rings?
Engagement rings have been thought of as a symbol of affection and commitment since the 15th century. Love is a boundless and beautiful thing, and designers and jewelers work tirelessly to embody the depth of feelings that couples have for one another.
A halo engagement ring is one of the most eye-catching expressions of devotion and appreciation. This style of ring offers wearers several benefits, aside from accentuating your fingers with a stunning, sparkling gemstone.
The Show-Stopping Large Rock Design
One of the most remarkable aspects of a halo engagement ring is that it makes the diamond or center stone look huge. Additionally, it gives the impression of one huge sparkling diamond from further away. Depending on the composition, a stone’s appearance can appear twice as large by adhering to this design style.
Halo Rings are Never Out of Fashion
Trends come and go in the jewelry business. However, halo engagement rings are always on-trend. A halo engagement ring marries contemporary and classic design to create a timeless aesthetic. An engagement ring is made to last, and this beautiful design will still be popular in the decades ahead due to its glamorous and attractive appearance.
One of the keys to the halo ring’s enduring popularity is that it is such a versatile style. This composition functions well with a variety of different center diamond shapes, like round and princess. Additionally, it works perfectly with other shapes, like a diamond, oval, radiants, and more.
Furthermore, the style lends itself well to other styles, like solitaire, pavé bands, and three-stone to create some extra sparkle.
Protection for the Center Stone
While diamonds and gemstones are indeed durable, that is not to say they are indestructible. Even the hardest material can be damaged or scratched due to a fall or hard impact. A halo ring surrounding stones can protect your center stone, making it resilient and long-lasting.
When it comes to engagement rings, halos are one of the most popular features because they make the ring look much more impressive. The sparkle and shine reach unbelievable levels when you choose one of our glamorous single or double halo diamond rings from Uneek.
