Why Halo Engagement Rings are Some of the Most Liked on Social Media

by Kiley Schiffman Storrs

The goal is to accentuate a diamond that is already spectacular. The result is an engagement ring that makes an impact like no other. When you surround a center diamond with a halo of smaller diamonds, you get a glamorous engagement ring that makes eyebrows pop up, and jaws drop down.

The halo engagement ring has become one of the most liked styles on social media. By taking a classic look and adding modern flair, halo rings offer up big sparkle. Instead of accentuating a single center stone, this style pops like fireworks - light appears to bounce from every direction.

Believe it or not, the halo setting has actually been around for many years, and like so many things that seem “trendy,” it’s one of the most classic styles of all time. She’ll love it on the day you propose, and 50 anniversaries from now. Ask any woman who’s been married for many years, and she’ll prove us right.

The halo engagement ring also has a way of increasing the impact, without greatly increasing the price point. The center stone is still the star of the show, but with a ring of diamonds around it, you get the appearance of a larger ring - whether it's round, square or even cushion cut.

The halo of smaller diamonds has another unseen benefit. The smaller stones actually protect the center stone from everyday wear and tear. Your fiancée gets an engagement ring that has a large and glamorous appearance and you get the security of knowing that it's sturdy and secure.  

Halo engagement rings are a popular choice and one of our staff favorites. As with any piece of jewelry, the one she loves is the one to choose. A halo engagement ring is one that packs a lot of impact in a price that will surprise you.
