Engagement rings are a timeless symbol of love, cherished for their beauty and significance. Among the plethora of design options, halo engagement rings stand out as a dazzling choice that captivates couples with their beauty and brilliance. Follow along with Soha Diamond Co. as we delve into the world of halo engagement rings, and discover what makes them a beloved choice for couples embarking on the journey of marriage. 

What is a Halo Engagement Ring?

A halo engagement ring is a design that features a central stone surrounded by a circle (or “halo”) of smaller accent stones. Typically, the central stone is a diamond, although other gemstones such as sapphires or moissanite may also be used. The halo of smaller stones enhances the appearance of the central stone, adding sparkle, brilliance, and visual impact to the ring. This design creates a stunning halo effect that accentuates the beauty of the central stone and creates a radiant, ethereal glow. 

The History of Halo Engagement Rings

While the halo engagement ring may seem like a contemporary design, its origins can be traced back to the early 20th century. The halo style gained popularity during the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by geometric shapes, bold lines, and intricate detailing. Art Deco jewelers often used halo settings to enhance the appearance of center stones and create visually striking pieces that reflected the opulence and glamour of the era. 

The Symbolism of Halo Engagement Rings 

Halo engagement rings hold profound symbolism that goes beyond their stunning aesthetic appeal. The central stone symbolizes the love and commitment shared between partners, while the surrounding halo represents the support, protection, and eternal bond that surrounds the relationship. This symbolism makes halo engagement rings a meaningful choice for couples who value tradition, romance, and symbolism in their union. 

Variations of Halo Engagement Rings 

While the classic halo engagement ring features a single halo surrounding the central stone, there are various design variations to suit different preferences and styles. A double halo engagement ring features two concentric circles of smaller stones surrounding the central stone, creating a dramatic and luxurious effect. In a hidden halo engagement ring, the halo of smaller stones is set beneath the central stone, creating the illusion of a larger, more prominent center stone. A floating halo engagement ring features a halo that appears to “float” above the band, giving the illusion of weightlessness and adding dimension to the design. A split shank halo engagement ring features a band that splits into two or more strands as it approaches the halo, creating a dynamic and visually interesting silhouette.
