What is a halo engagement ring, you ask? Beside the catalyst that starts a refrain of Beyonce’s song of the same name, halo style engagement rings are a chic trend among the recently betrothed.

Halo diamond engagement rings are so named because the style incorporates a center stone surrounded by smaller stones, which resembles a sparkling, jewel-encrusted halo. The halo diamond engagement ring trend is popular among numerous celebrities, including Natalie Portman, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, and Kate Middleton (which first belonged to Princess Diana).

Halo engagement rings are stunning and sophisticated in nature, reminiscent of the jewelry of monarchs. Anyone who dons a halo style ring would be hard-pressed not to feel like a queen while wearing one. However, the ornate and opulent style is not for every bride. Like any other engagement ring still, it is important to tailor the ring to the personality and lifestyle of the bride.

There are many perks of a halo engagement ring. You can personalize your halo engagement ring to reflect your personality by adding a pop of color. Set rubies, sapphires, emeralds, or colored diamonds in the halo to really make your center diamond pop! The white diamonds set against the colored gemstones create an eye-catching color cue that adds a unique element of style to your one of a kind engagement ring.

Another perk of the halo is that it fits any stone cut—pear, princess, cushion, etc. Should a bride choose to elect for a more unusual cut of diamond, the halo provides an element of classic couture to any engagement ring, regardless of its shape. Lastly, the halo creates the look of a much larger center stone.  

Whatever your personal style is, it is hard to argue against the breath-taking luxuriance of the halo style engagement ring.
