  • Halo settings work best with a diamond band
You might say that a pave diamond band and a solitaire are a match made in heaven. We agree, but the pave band looks even better with a halo setting. A diamond band and a halo setting complement each other because of the many small diamonds.
  • The Halo setting offers more protection to the center stone.
With big diamonds, there’s always a risk of losing them. And if you’re choosing a shape that has edges, such as the pear, it’s a good idea to surround it with a halo of protection. Diamonds are tough, but the sharp edges have more chances of being damaged.
  • Halo looks good with all diamond shapes
Halo setting works well with most diamond shapes. This versatility makes this setting even more desirable to jewelry designers and modern brides.
  • Celebrities love the halo

It’s true! Halo is the most coveted style of engagement ring after the solitaire. Celebrities and top designers over the years have favored this ring style and hence it continues to be popular. Kate Middleton, Lady Gaga, Pippa Middleton are few celebs who chose the halo ring for their engagement.
 
In conclusion, the halo engagement rings are not going out of style. If this is your favored style, start dropping hints to your man already!
