A Halo engagement ring showcases a circle of diamonds around the diamond creating a halo effect. This design draws attention to the diamond making it appear more radiant and more striking while highlighting its sparkling brilliance and luxurious attributes. Halo engagement rings are ideal for those who appreciate a style and a dazzling impact.

Halo Engagement Ring Symbolism:

A halo engagement ring represents blatant love that revels in expression, a precious commitment and eternal love.

What Is a Hidden Halo Engagement Ring?

The literal meaning of a hidden halo engagement ring is to conceal the halo. But what is a halo? A halo is a circle of diamonds around the center main stone, forming a halo of light.

From the front, a hidden halo engagement ring is similar to a solitaire engagement ring, where only one gemstone can be seen. However, from the side or bottom, you can see the hidden halo. The designer embeds the petite diamonds constituting the halo on the lateral or lower part of the primary stone, imparting a touch of finesse and sophistication to the ring. 

Hidden halo engagement rings combine both sparkle and understated elegance, suitable for those who are modest and appreciate subtle luxury.

Hidden Halo Engagement Ring Symbolism:

Hidden halo engagement rings represent deep-seated love without excessive flair, an understated commitment that is mysterious and romantic.

Differences Between Halo Engagement Rings and Hidden Halo Engagement Rings:

The main difference between a Hidden Halo Engagement Ring and a Halo Engagement Ring is the placement of the small diamonds. Instead of being set at the same level as the main stone, the small diamonds in a Hidden Halo Ring are hidden underneath the center gemstone stone, making the setting invisible from the front, and only visible when viewed from the side.

Feature Halo Engagement Ring Hidden Halo Engagement Ring
Halo Visible in front view, encircling the center gemstone Hidden beneath the center gemstone, visible from the side or bottom
Gemstones Typically, a larger center gemstone surrounded by smaller diamonds Center gemstone size can vary, surrounded by smaller diamonds
Style Glamorous and dazzling Understated luxury
Price Relatively higher Relatively lower

How to Choose Between Halo Engagement Rings and Hidden Halo Engagement Rings?

Halo engagement rings and Hidden Halo engagement rings each have their own characteristics. The selection between them hinges on your individual style inclinations and budget. 

Here are some choose suggestions:

Style Preferences: If you prefer a glamorous and sparkly style, a Halo engagement ring will suit you better. If you prefer an understated style with an inner chain, a hidden Halo engagement ring is a good choice.

Budget: If you are on a budget, choose a smaller Halo engagement ring or a hidden Halo engagement ring for the same quality of stone and the same setting. Because Halo engagement rings use a larger amount of diamonds, they will cost more.

Trial Fittings: Prior to finalizing a ring selection, experiment with various styles to gauge their aesthetic appeal to you and pinpoint the one that aligns best with your style.

Professional Guidance: If uncertainties persist, seek counsel from a professional jeweler for additional insights. They can propose a ring or tailor one to meet your specifications.

Here are some additional tips:

  • When choosing a diamond/gemstone, don't just consider the carat weight but also the 4Cs: carat weight, color, clarity, and cut.
  • Choose a metal material that matches your ring's style, such as platinum, gold, or rose gold, each of which has its own advantages and style.
