Halo engagement rings have truly been trending in style and popularity of late, but what exactly is a halo engagement ring and is it the right ring choice for you or your partner?
Let’s take a closer look at halo engagement rings to discover more about them.
What Does Halo Engagement Ring Mean?
Essentially, for a ring to be called a halo ring or a halo engagement ring, this simply means that there is a larger centre stone that is completely surrounded by a ring of smaller stones, creating a halo effect. This circle of small stones serves as an accent to help highlight the larger centre stone, as well as adding more bling to the ring.
Halo engagement rings don’t just utilise the traditional round brilliant cut design. Halo rings come in all manner of shapes and sizes, also taking advantage of the more modern dream cut, pear-shaped diamonds, cushion cut, oval shape and more. Halo rings also don’t only use diamonds but can be made from all sorts of coloured gemstones.
Why Are Halo Diamond Engagement Rings So Popular These Days?
Sometimes, people just want something a little different and more modern. A break from tradition and something that makes a statement about their individual personality. The halo engagement ring achieves these goals to perfection.
Halo engagement rings are customisable rings and many opt to have their designs for a ring custom-made by a quality jeweller. The design is so versatile compared to something like a solitaire ring, that there is so much more scope for variety and the ability to create an engagement ring that is very unique.
Modern brides are loving the variety of designs that halo engagement rings offer.
How Much Does it Cost To Add a Halo To An Engagement Ring?
If you’re looking to customise a ring you want to buy (or already own) into a halo ring, you’re probably wondering what that’s going to cost. It’s quite an open-ended question that can rely on a number of factors.
For starters, the number of, size and quality of the diamonds you wish to purchase to create the halo is obviously going to affect the final total in a major way. A setting also has to be created for the halo. The setting could be made from sterling silver, 9ct gold, 18ct gold or platinum, so this is also going to determine the price.
Some Popular Halo Engagement Ring Designs
Let’s take a look at just a few halo engagement rings that are proving very popular with brides to be.
