What are the different types of Halo’s?

There are 4 main types of Halo’s for engagement rings: Singular/Classic, Double, Hidden, and Unique Halo’s. Singular/classic halo, refers to a single layer or round outline of diamonds or gemstones around the centre stone. Double halo is a double layered round outline around the centre stone, and is very similar to the classic Halo style, just with more shine. Hidden halo is a smaller halo underneath the centre stone on the setting part of the ring. This style gets it’s name because when looking at the ring from a top view the halo is hidden by the centre stone. Unique halo’s refer to unconventional shapes and objects outlining the centre stone in diamonds or gemstones. Some of the unique halo’s are square halos, pear shaped halo’s, flower shaped halo’s, two sided halo’s and more.

Why Should I Buy A Halo Engagement Ring?

You should buy a halo engagement ring because there are several advantages to choosing a halo. Firstly, your halo adds more sparkle to your ring as a result of more diamonds being around your centre stone. Secondly, Halo’s create the perception of a larger diamond or gemstone, due to the surrounding smaller gemstones in the halo. Lastly, the halo not only enhances the visual perception of the diamonds but also allows for a more budget-friendly choice by selecting a smaller central stone. On the other hand, if you don’t like a ring with a lot of sparkle and shine to it, and like something more simple this style might not be the one for you. The halo around the ring can be seen as metal due to the addition of the halo, especially with double halo’s. This also means halo’s get dirtier easier then other styles, and need to be cleaned more often.
