A halo is a type of diamond setting that surrounds a center stone with a circle of smaller diamonds or other gemstones, creating a "halo" effect. The smaller stones can be set in a variety of shapes, such as round, square, or pear-shaped, and are typically held in place by tiny prongs or beads.
Halo settings can make the center stone appear larger and more impressive, as well as add extra sparkle and brilliance to the ring. They are a popular choice for engagement rings and other fine jewelry pieces.
Halo settings come in different styles, such as a single halo with one circle of stones around the center stone, or a double halo with two circles of stones. Some halo settings also incorporate additional stones on the band or shank of the ring.
Halo settings can be customized to suit individual tastes and preferences, and are available in a range of metals, including white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and platinum. They can be paired with a variety of center stone shapes, including round, cushion, oval, and pear-shaped, making them a versatile and popular choice for many jewelry buyers.
