Quick Tip: Add A Diamond Halo To Your Engagement Ring To Make Your Entire Ring Look A Lot Bigger
The halo engagement ring is one of the most popular styles of engagement rings today. The halo engagement ring features a center diamond (or gemstone) surrounded by a ring of smaller diamonds. The added diamonds not only make your ring much more sparkly, but make your entire ring look a lot larger, which makes it one of the best ways to get that big diamond look for a much lower price tag.
How does it work? The halo takes up more surface area on your finger, giving the ring more volume and therefore appearing larger on your finger than just the center diamond alone. We love the halo because any shape diamond can be set into a halo. The smaller, surrounding diamonds not only enhance the overall size and shape of the ring, but the brilliance as well. The additional diamonds amplify the size of the center diamond, and reflect more light on the center diamond, therefore making it overall much more eye-catching.
