Meaning and Name of a Halo Ring
A halo ring is a diamond setting that surrounds the central main stone with smaller diamonds, creating an illusion of it appearing larger. The term 'halo' refers to the atmospheric phenomenon of seeing colored or white rings around the sun or moon.
Suitable Center Stones for a Halo Ring
A halo ring can use colorless or colored diamonds, both of which result in a sparkling effect. However, the setting doesn't necessarily require diamonds — colored gemstones like rubies or sapphires are also perfectly suitable for halo rings. The best cuts for the ring are round diamonds and square princess cuts. Specific shapes like marquise or pear also work but may not highlight the halo effect as prominently.
So, which diamonds offer the best combination for a halo ring? It primarily depends on your budget. Visually, a medium-sized diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds or a trio of smaller diamonds can create a stunning ring. To enhance the look, you can also inset colorless or colored pave diamonds on the band.
Now that you know what a halo ring is and how it creates the illusion of a larger diamond, you might want to learn more about finding the perfect diamond ring.

The gem is durable, rare, and must meet the definition of being a stone with a certain hardness, which also applies to diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires.

Most sapphires weigh over 4 carats, and the most valuable sapphires are found in Sri Lanka.
