20 Of The Most Exquisite Halo Engagement Rings
Floral, partial, snowflake or circular, halo engagement rings are a stunning option for brides-to-be. Here, 20 to fall in love with.
Just like the brides that wear them, engagement rings come in many different forms. From different centre stones ( sapphires , emeralds and rubies are all worthy coloured-stone contenders against the classic diamond), to alternative metals and compositions ( three-stone rings are enjoying something of a moment in the sun right now), there are dozens of ways to customise and personalise your rock. And that includes the setting. For some, the classic solitaire approach reigns supreme, while others prefer multi-stones on their own, but a popular (and stunning) setting option is the halo. Defined as a collection of diamonds or gemstones that encircles the centre stone, the halo setting comes in many different variations and is a stunning way of not only highlighting the centre stone, but adding interest and depth to the ring. Whether it's a partial or full halo, single or double layered (as we have seen on some celebrity engagement rings, most recently Cressida Bonas' ruby and diamond halo), in recent times, jewellers have embraced pairing different cuts of stone around the edge to create patterns or floral shapes. Interested in embracing the halo approach? Below, 20 rings to ogle over (and then surreptitiously send to your partner).
