The Popularity of Halo Engagement Rings
Halo engagement rings have become one of the most popular designs this year, but why are more and more people choosing them over other ring designs?
What Are Halo Engagement Rings?
Halo engagement rings aren’t a new concept, yet they are a style that has become incredibly popular recently. They basically consist of a larger stone in the center of the ring, which is then surrounded by a number of smaller stones – creating what could loosely be described as a halo around the central stone. This not only looks different from other rings and therefore makes the ring unique to look at, but also means that halo engagement rings shine incredibly brightly – far brighter than most standard rings anyway!
One question that many people have when it comes to halo engagement rings is whether the “halo” has to be circular. Obviously most stones that are placed in a ring are roughly circular, so this is the most common type of halo engagement ring. However, there is nothing to say that there can’t also be square, triangular or any other shape used when creating this effect. In essence, the shape does not matter at all – it is all down to personal preference. The only caveat for a ring to be classed as a halo ring is that the main stone is surrounded by a number of smaller stones.
Why Are They So Popular?
Before we go into the various aesthetic reasons why halo engagement rings are currently so popular, it is first prudent to mention that one of the main reasons is due to price. This is because halo engagement rings can be bought for much less than engagement rings with one stone in. This might seem slightly odd to say, but the fact is lots of small stones surrounding a medium stone is still much cheaper than just one large stone. During these tough economic times, people are trying to save as much money as possible – even when it comes to something as important as an engagement ring!
The looks that this type of engagement ring provides is a massive reason for its popularity though and many people love the fact that they can have a mix of two different stones, with perhaps a diamond in the middle, surrounded by a halo of sapphires. It is just as possible for halo engagement rings to use the same stone all over as well though, and this will look equally as stunning! Could there be anything more elegant than a diamond surrounded by a number of other diamonds?
As can be seen halo engagement rings are the perfect combination of style, elegance and value for money. This means that they are the perfect choice for anyone looking to propose to their one true love with a ring that really takes their breath away, but at the same time doesn’t want to have to break the bank in order to do so! They can be bought both online or in a jewelers and there are a huge number of different styles to choose from.
