Diamond Engagement Ring Trend – The Halo
Engagement rings come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. They are a beautiful reminder of love, commitment and fidelity. There are so many stunning engagement ring designs to choose from, so it’s easy to find one that fits perfectly with your personal style. One of the newest and hottest engagement trends is called “The Halo.”
Halo engagement rings feature a circle or “halo” of accent diamonds that surround the center diamond. This adds so much to the overall look and design of the engagement ring. For one thing, the halo of diamonds adds a dazzling effect to the ring. The smaller diamonds reflect beautifully into and around the center diamond. Secondly, the halo actually makes the center diamond appear larger with the layer of bright white stones — and in some cases, it even “protects” the center diamond from being hit during an impact.

The diamonds in the halo can be set in several different of ways. In the Split Shank Diamond Engagement Ring Style No.: MS137-A, the diamonds in the halo are prong-set; as are the other accent diamonds that make their way down either side of the band. In the Diamond Engagement Ring Style No.: MS142-A, the diamonds in the halo are prong-set but also feature a gorgeous millgrain edging, which adds interest and an elegant vintage flair. The halo of diamonds can also feature a pavé or channel setting, which compliments both the diamonds and the overall style of the piece.

In addition, you have the freedom to select the center and accent diamonds carat and quality. This means you can customize the halo style engagement ring that you choose, to fit within your preference, lifestyle and budget.
