Another amazing Indy Facets couple getting engaged!
For Alexander, popping the question to Kelsey means surprising her with a ring that takes the breath away. Working with us at Indy Facets, the ring he envisions becomes real; a dazzling halo style white gold ring with a circle diamond surrounded by sparkling, colorless pavé stones. The added touch – an eternity band of diamonds to symbolize everlasting love.
Halo Diamond Rings Always Take Your Breath Away
A circle of small diamonds surrounding a center stone is called a halo. A halo setting enhances the overall effect of any gemstone, adding fire and brilliance to every shape it circles. When chosen as the centerpiece, colored gemstones also benefit from a halo’s glow. Coupled with the popular round brilliant cut diamond, you have the makings for a spectacular jewel. No matter your budget, this style allows you to create an impressive ring. Your possibilities are endless.
Things to Know About Halo Settings
- Halo – The circle of gems that surrounds the main diamond or gemstone. Halos can also intertwine around the main diamond or gemstone. The design is made up of single, double or triple gem circles that draw attention to the center stone.
- Flush Halo – The center stone is level with the circle of gems. This style fits closely to the hand, so it is less likely to be bumped or to snag on clothing. Because it is a low-profile ring, adjust the design of your wedding band to fit comfortably with a flush halo.
- Floating Halo – Sitting slightly higher than the surrounding diamonds, the central gem has an airline or separation between it and the halo. The style sits higher off the finger. Consider adding prongs or claws to keep the stone from loosening or falling out if bumped.
- Shank – The band for the setting. The shank can be as simple or elaborate as you want. It can be a plain thin circle, a thick band with pavé diamonds or a split shank.
- Melee – The individual small diamonds (usually less than 1/5 carat) set in the halo.
- Pavé – A French word meaning, to pave. Melee diamonds are set together in a row to form a pattern in a halo and a shank.
