A halo engagement ring is widely considered a stylish twist on the classic solitaire.

What Is A Halo Engagement Ring? 

As the name suggests, it's a design that encircles the main centre stone with a ‘halo' of smaller stones. A style that has become increasingly popular in recent years as it gives a nod to the widely adorned vintage look.

 

The History of Halo Engagement Rings 

Halo engagement rings have been around for a while. They enjoyed an introduction in the 1920s, during the art deco era from which their design draws inspiration. They have surged in popularity just recently, given their fashionable edge, but also due to them being the engagement ring of choice for many high-profile ladies.


Best Known Halo Engagement Rings

Unsurprisingly, the halo style is a celebrity favourite. Catching the eye of some of the most well-known couples and adorning many a famous finger. From Kate Middleton's diamond-circled sapphire, to Jessica Alba's classic asscher cut design, the halo look is certainly one to aspire to.

Katie Holmes, Natalie Portman and Penelope Cruz have also all opted for the framed style for their engagement rings, which shows no sign of slipping down the popularity ranks. The halo engagement ring maximises sparkle, so it's easy to see why it's regarded so highly and quite frankly, who wouldn't want to shine a little brighter?

 

What Should You Consider When Buying a Halo Engagement Ring? 

When choosing a halo engagement ring, it's not a case of one size fits all. You can opt for a double halo for extra sparkle as well as beautiful pave set shoulders to complete the the look. When it comes to the centre stone, the options are endless - from stylish oval to classic brilliant, striking princess and more. All of which are instantly maximised by a stunning halo detail.
