What Is A Hidden Halo Ring?
Unlike traditional halo style engagement rings, a hidden halo ring features a pavé or similar setting encircling the base of the center stone. In other words, a traditional halo can be viewed from above whereas a hidden halo can only be seen from the sides.
A hidden halo accentuates the center stone while allowing it to shine on its own. It also provides additional angles for light to interact with the stones – this is an especially impressive feature when a diamond center stone is paired with a hidden halo of diamonds.
Why Choose A Hidden Halo Engagement Ring?
Hidden halos are an impressive ring style and are chosen for several reasons. One of the most obvious reasons is the elegance inherent in the design. A band of smaller side diamonds adds an extra dimension to the main center stone of the ring. For a bride searching for a more elegant look, or one that emphasizes the beauty of diamonds, this is a highly desirable effect.
However, hidden and traditional halo rings also provide a multitude of custom gemstone combinations. Brides searching for a remarkable ring that speaks volumes about their personality will find that a hidden halo can create unique contrasts. For example, the pavé set side stones can be a colored gem, like sapphire or ruby, for a stark contrast with a diamond center stone. Conversely, a colored gemstone center can be paired with a base of smaller diamonds for an eye-catching sparkle that draws attention to the encircled gem.
Ultimately, the right ring should match the style of the bride, and offer a look she’ll happily wear for many years to come.
