Choosing Your Halo Engagement Ring

The halo engagement ring offers a lot of options for creating the big diamond look we all love as well as personalizing your engagement ring.

If you want to make a splash with a small budget, the halo engagement ring is a brilliant option as this setting literally makes your diamond look as much as a half a carat larger.

The halo engagement ring encircles the center diamond with a seamless diamond collection that will most certainly focus the attention to your center stone – this might be a diamond or a gemstone, and create interest and draw people’s gaze to your ring.

The halo engagement ring made its debut in the 1920s, when the style known as Art Deco became prominent. Their current resurgence has rocketed halo rings to second place behind the classic solitaire as the most favored style of engagement ring. Halo rings are almost as classic as solitaires, but with a stylish twist.

The classic choice for the halo engagement ring is white gold or platinum. As you explore your halo engagement ring options, you may discover rose or yellow gold is the perfect complement.

Yellow gold is a great choice for diamonds with some yellow in them because it downplays the tint (white gold would emphasize it — something you likely don’t want to do unless you have a natural yellow diamond). Two-tone settings can be an interesting choice.

Rose gold engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular and it can impart a vintage feel. The soft rose colour can enchance assorted coloured gemstones such as morganite and green peridot.

The amazing Jack Friedman halo engagement ring is able to accommodate a wedding band and depending on your needs we will advise the best suitable match.

There are so many options that the halo engagement ring offers and it is important that you remember that at Jack Friedman we are able to create your engagement ring from scratch, meaning your own idea can come to life and adorn your hand!
