The halo style engagement ring has become one of the most popular styles in recent years. Halo refers to the crown of diamonds or metalwork surrounding the center diamond. Not only does a halo add sparkle, it also functions as protection for the center diamond. A halo can transform a smaller diamond into a dramatic statement. For this reason, our halo engagement rings are an excellent choice when budget concerns limit the center diamond size. While round is the most common, any center diamond shape can be surrounded in halo. Often, halo engagement rings will have no other diamond accents, creating the appearance of an "enhanced solitaire." Other halo styles will have additional diamond accents along the band to further intensify the brilliance of the ring.
