Diamond Education | Halo Engagement Rings

What are halo engagement rings?

If you want to surround your brilliant Sylvie Collection diamond in a beautiful set of smaller diamonds, consider a halo style ring. Halo engagement rings have a border, or halo as the name suggests, of smaller diamonds that frame the larger center diamond. The style achieves a look that showcases and magnifies the center diamond in the perfect setting. Since the smaller diamonds frame the larger center diamond, it enhances the look and size of the center diamond to make it appear larger than it is.

A halo style gives any engagement ring a majestic look. Although a halo style makes any ring look classic, consider these options when designing your custom Sylvie Collection engagement ring. Consider pairing the halo style with a vintage diamond shape like emerald, marquise or cushion cut or if you want a more traditional style, select a round brilliant cut. The halo ring style can also be set with colored gems to truly make any stone shine with brilliance. Whichever cut, color or metal you choose, your bride to be will love the complexity and intricacy of your custom engagement ring.

Recently, halo styles have gained in popularity and continue to be sought after styles to make for an unforgettable proposal. You can stand out from the crowd by choosing from one of the many types of halo engagement rings. A classic halo ring offers an enhanced version of a traditional solitaire design where as a luxe halo ring, featuring diamonds encrusted on three sides of the band, maximizes glamour and brilliance. A vintage-inspired halo ring highlights the intricate milgrain and micropavé detailing along the band.

The halo style is versatile enough to work with any style of ring, whether you like square or round diamonds or a channel setting or three stone designs. Whether your preference is asscher, princess or emerald, a Sylvie Collection consultant will help you create a ring that will certainly take your loved one’s breath away.
