What To Consider When Buying A Halo Engagement Ring

Finding the perfect engagement ring to give your partner can be tricky, particularly if you are picking one that suits her style and personality. Halo engagement rings not only ooze elegance, but the smaller diamonds situated around the centre stone of the ring give the illusion of a larger diamond.

Many celebrities have sported an engagement ring with a halo setting. Most notably, the Duchess of Cambridge has the most well-known halo engagement ring in the world, which previously belonged to the late Princess Diana. Her halo ring had 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding the oval blue sapphire centre stone and a 18 carat white gold band.

What is a Halo Engagement Ring?

A halo engagement ring is a setting style where a set of pave diamonds that encircle around the centre stone of the ring. The centre stone tends to be either a diamond or coloured gemstone and are both popular ring styles when it comes to making an engagement proposal to your partner.

It’s worth mentioning that there are different types of halo engagement rings available, thus giving you a chance to personalise the ring. You could have a princess cut centre stone with a rose gold band, thus allowing you to create a diamond halo ring that your partner has dreamed of having.

What does a Halo Engagement Ring say about you?

When your partner wears a halo engagement ring, it shows off her true personality to friends and family members. The colour of the metal band also plays a significant role in portraying a certain image about your partner, whether that’s a modern or a traditional look.

If your partner wears a halo diamond engagement ring with a yellow gold band, it reflects a classic look to the ring wearer. With a halo engagement ring that features a rose gold or white gold ring band, it may reflect a more modern look.

Things to consider when buying a Halo Engagement Ring

Before you decide on buying a halo engagement ring for your partner, there are a few things you should consider. By taking these things into account, it’ll ensure that you get a halo engagement ring that’s right for your partner.

Gemstone or Diamond Halo Engagement Ring?

Gemstone or diamond? You may be wondering which setting you want to use as the centre stone of your halo engagement ring. While you can stick with a diamond in the centre of the ring, you can incorporate coloured gemstones into the ring’s setting.

Sapphire and emerald are just a few gemstones you can include in your halo engagement ring. By incorporating a gemstone as the centre stone of your ring, it’ll reflect your partner’s individuality since colours have deeper meanings compared to a diamond.

Can I use my partner’s Birthstone in my Halo Engagement Ring?

If you’re wondering if you can use your birthstone in your partner’s halo engagement ring, yes you can. It comes down to which gemstone is the month that your partner was born in, whether that’s sapphire in September or emerald in May. By customising your fiance’s ring with her birthstone, you’ll be able to create a proposal that’s personal to her.

Picking the right Diamond cut for your Halo Engagement Ring

While any diamond cut (cushion cut and oval cut) works well for a halo engagement ring, the most popular option for this type of ring is a round diamond. The combination of a round diamond or gemstone centre stone with a halo setting creates the perfect symmetry for your partner wearing the ring.


Halo engagement rings are a great choice when it comes to popping the question to your fiance. The combination of the halo’s sparkle alongside it being well suited for any diamond shape means that you’ll be able to find a ring that she’ll never want to take off her finger.
