Drop Halo VS Classic Halo Engagement Rings

Halo engagement rings continue to be one of the most popular styles for brides to be. Adding extra sparkle and drama to your ring, a halo can adorn any shape of diamond to give a timeless and twinkling appearance.
The past few years have seen a huge rise in the popularity of drop halo engagement rings. Unsure whether to select a drop or classic halo ring? We are here to help!
A classic halo features a row of pave gemstones (usually diamonds) which embrace the central diamond, running the full circumference and hugging close to your rock.
Danhov LE112 Per Lei Halo Diamond Engagement Ring
Danhov LE112 Per Lei Halo Diamond Engagement Ring
This Per Lei ring by Danhov is a great example of a classic halo. The pave diamonds perfectly enhance the central stone without dominating it. In this example, the pave is continued down the band for even more sparkle!
A drop halo is all about the profile view. Rather than wrapping around the diamond, the pave diamonds are set in the side or just below the central diamond.

So now that you know the difference, all that’s left to do is decide which unique drop halo or classic halo engagement ring is perfect for you. To help you with your search, we have narrowed down some of our favourites.
