Halo engagement rings – they’re not for everyone. But for some brides, they’re the be-all, end-all! And today, I’m focused on them. The allure of the halo isn’t going anywhere, not when they exist to make every diamond look bigger and sparklier. Not when they’re in the corner of many an Insta shot, commanding all attention with serious bling. And not when brands like Verragio, A. Jaffe and Tacori just. keep. making them so delicious. So here are a few of my favorite rings, specifically, those gorgeous halo pieces that have so many women saying “YES!”
This princess cut halo by Uneek is an unexpected beauty. It’s not too often you see a princess cut halo, typically you see rounds, cushions and soft square halos. But this is a gorgeous take on the style, with soft curves of a not-quite split shank band and a gently curved halo juxtaposed with the sharp corners of the princess cut center stone. The mounting is platinum, made in the USA (like all Uneek rings) and has .52ctw of accent diamonds.
Anothr Uneek beauty, which you can see from the branded CZ, this one one ups the split shank and does a triple shank. It’s still in Uneek’s trademark curved style, but sandwiches the center band between the two. This platinum soft square halo features .85ctw of accent diamonds.
This A. Jaffe halo is a gorgeous example of the magic a halo can work on the smallest of center stones. Two rows of diamonds encircle the center stone, all hugged by a wide split shank. The diamonds weigh a total of .52ctw, and this ring’s base model is 14kt white gold. All A. Jaffe rings are also made in the US.
This stunning Gabriel NY engagement ring is another example of how the accent diamonds can create a huge impact even on a center stone less than one carat. The thick shanks have three rows of micropave, while the bezel-ed halo has two rows of micropave separated by white gold milgrain.
This large cushion cut halo setting has about .96ctw of accent diamonds, and a 3.84ct Round Brilliant Diamond, Diamond is J in color and SI3 in clarity.
This Ever & Ever floral cushion cut is a stunning and unique take on the halo. I love the extra wide split shank style but the super delicate diamond bands. And the generously sized accent diamonds in the halo bring add even more interest to the beautiful center stone.
As always, Verragio never disappoints with halo rings! Whether you prefer a sleek single shank or a romantic twisted shank, you’re in good (left) hands.
Finally, a pop of color for your halo. This Uneek soft square halo features a gorgeous rose gold around the center stone, with bright, clean white diamonds in the curved double shank.
