As the name suggests is a solitaire with a ring of diamonds around it.The ring makes the centre diamond appear larger than it actually is.There are various types of halo rings and these can be made with any diamond but the round brilliant cut halo ring is probably the most popular.
The Halo ring is usually quite raised to accommodate a wedding band but it can also be lower set but this will require a custom made wedding band or at least a shaped wedding band.There is no right and wrong with this it is just personal preference as to whether to have the ring wed fit or not.
By wed fit we mean wedding ring friendly in that the halo engagement ring fits flush against the the halo ring.
We recommend that Halo rings be made in white gold as it is a bit more shock absorbent that platinum.The Halo ring is more likely to get the odd knock as it is raised more than is normal. The worst that we have seen is the odd diamond on the band become loose but these are not difficult to replace.
