Every angel deserves a Halo. Start with a beautiful diamond. Surround it in a circle of smaller beautiful diamonds. The result is always going to be heavenly and breathtaking. This is the concept behind exquisite Halo Engagement Rings. They are always unique and extraordinary. The halo setting features a gorgeous center diamond as the focal point, fully encircled by smaller diamonds. The effect is always stunning no matter what size or shape the center diamond is. The fire and sparkle of diamond is enhanced from all angles and it will also appear larger when nestled in a halo diamond ring
You may think that halo settings are a recent trend in the diamond fashion industry. Actually, this design was inspired by the art and architecture of the 1920’s. Variations of the diamond halo ring have been around a long time. The style went dormant for several decades and then resurged in the 1960’s when art deco styles began to grow in popularity. The term “halo ring" was not applied until fairly recently. Today, elegant halo engagement rings are available in many flattering designs that are suitable any taste and style. Designer engagement rings
vary from the ornate and artistic elegance seen in Verragio Rings
to a simple solitaire with a halo center. Halos may be prong-set, which means the diamond is secured by four or 6 prongs and elevated slightly. It can be also be bezel-set, in which the metal surrounds the diamond and it sits flush in the mounting. A combination of bezel and prong can be done as well.

Some diamond rings with halo settings have the added elegance and sparkle of diamonds encrusted on the sides of the band, still others can feature double or triple halos around the center stone. Whatever your style and taste dictates can be incorporated into the halo setting. From the most dramatic to a simple and classic sleek look and everything in between, the Halo is as versatile as the person wearing it.
Since the center diamond is the featured “star” of all halo engagement rings, it is important to select the most beautiful diamond you possibly can. Whiteflash A CUT ABOVE
