A diamond engagement ring is, arguably, the single most important item a woman will ever own. That being said, we live in a wonderful time where the options are endless and the "rules" no longer apply. You can never go wrong with a single, sparkling, solitaire diamond. However, if you want to punch that up a notch, there's only one option - surround that solitaire with a halo of diamonds. Is there any better way to commemorate your earthly angel than with a halo of shimmering diamonds? Let's take a look at some gorgeous options.
The Classic Solitaire, With Just the Right Pizazz
This is a gorgeous example of how the classic solitaire can really take it up a notch with just a little bit of help from its friends. Here we see that standalone giant surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds that really force the rest of the engagement rings in the world to take a bow. These round halo diamonds sit atop a shared prong setting and are well-positioned to make your lifelong partner always remember how treasured she is.
An Oval Diamond Embraced by Round Diamonds
Now this is a stunner. A gorgeous oval diamond really punches up the size, giving that special someone added sparkle and shine to gaze at. Not only is this centerpiece surrounded by a series of round diamonds, it also boasts a pave half-band. If your lady loves the vintage vibe, this is right up her alley. Get ready to make her day, and by extension, the rest of her life!
Give Her Halo Something Colorful to Adorn
Don't be afraid to bedazzle her in a halo surrounding one colorful sparkler. The yellow diamond has become increasingly popular as an engagement ring. Its brightness is unparalleled. Now, her hand will shine bright like the setting sun and dance amongst glistening round diamonds. This statement piece wouldn't do without an accompanying pave band, so expect those small sparklers to twinkle all the way around her finger. When the special day arrives, pair this ray of sun with one more diamond pave band, and she's heaven-bound in this halo.
One More Round Option
If you're feeling like all these adornments are just not your lady's style, have no fear. The halo setting is still foolproof. This option may be just the ticket. It's another vintage throwback, and timeless classics will always stand strong. What’s interesting about this design is its flower essence. Doesn’t it look like a pretty little daisy? In this setting, a sturdy white gold or platinum band will prop up this masterpiece ever-so-elegantly. She’ll have a daily reminder of just who's propping her up each day, too.
A Halo for a Princess?
Discover the perfect compliment of stones. Here, you've got your princess-cut diamond, which is going to beam out rays of light in every direction, enveloped by a sprinkling of pave halo diamonds. This ring says it all. She's the sun and the moon. Your princess and your angel. As if it wasn't stunning enough from straight on, take a look at the side-view of this masterpiece. The pave work all along the side will make her smile, no matter which way she's admiring her timeless piece from you.
