FAQs about Halo Engagement Rings

What are halo settings?

Halo engagement rings feature a center stone surrounded by smaller stones for added bling.

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.

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. The 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 stones. Round halo engagement rings offer an update to the solitaire style while cushion and princess cut halo engagement rings offer modern takes on these stylish shapes.
