For the last several years, halo engagement rings have been very popular and are just behind the most popular choice of a solitaire. This may be due in part to the renewed interest in vintage and antique designs. Halo engagement rings first became popular during the Victorian era and then again in the Art Deco period of the 1920s.
It case you do not know, a halo ring has a center stone that is encircled by a collection of round pavé or micro-pavé diamonds or in some case colored gemstones. All of these small stones increase the sparkle and help to draw attention to the center stone and make it look like it is a much bigger carat size. For someone who wants a unique look, the Halo ring offers many different styles and finish options. You ring can be a classic circle of stones on a plain band or elaborately decorated with stones or filigree along the shank of the ring.
Another advantage to a halo design is that the cost of an average halo engagement ring can be slightly lower than that of a solitaire. Also if you like bling, a halo ring can take up more space on your finger and attract more attention. Keep in mind that you will want to buy a halo ring from a jeweler who is known for their craftsmanship as you want the stones to be evenly and securely set.
