FAQs about Halo Engagement Rings

What are halo settings?

Halo settings are rings in which a center gemstone or diamond is complemented by at least one additional row of smaller accent stones. The most popular style is one in which the center gem is completely encircled by diamonds that are best seen from the table down perspective.

While the most popular type of halo engagement ring features a center diamond surrounded by smaller stones, other designs like gemstone engagement rings or hidden halo rings are also available.  

Do halo settings make a center diamond appear larger?

This is one of the biggest draws of halo diamond rings. The circle of smaller diamonds helps make the center diamond look much larger by enhancing the appearance of the main stone and adding additional sparkle around it. With added light and scintillation, a halo ring setting can sometimes help center diamonds or gemstones look larger than their actual size.

In hidden halo rings, this is achieved by adding more subtle light performance to the ring. For more classic halo ring settings with a single or double row of pavé diamonds, the scintillation of the center diamond is directly enhanced by the halo. Diamonds with lower cut ratings can often look their very best with the help of halo ring settings.  

What's the difference between carat weight and carat total weight?

Halo engagement ring settings will often include information about the main stone’s carat weight and something additional called carat total weight. The carat total weight is a numerical value that includes all of the stones in the setting. Single diamond carat weight, on the other hand, only refers to the main stone. This means that halo engagement rings can have both descriptions or just the carat total weight rating.

What diamond shapes are ideal for halo settings?

Single halo and double halo settings look especially brilliant surrounding round, cushion, and princess diamonds. Round halo engagement rings offer an update to the solitaire style while cushion and princess cut halo engagement rings offer modern takes on these diamond shapes. As halo engagement rings continue to grow in popularity, more unique fancy-cut shapes are also receiving the sparkling halo treatment.

While round halo engagement rings are the most classic shape for women’s and men’s engagement rings with halo diamonds, squarer and more rectangular gemstone and diamond shapes are also excellent fits for these stylish rings
