Characteristics of Halo Engagement RingsHalo engagement rings are the kind of ring where a center stone is surrounded by a circle of metal and studded with smaller stones. This style comes with a few elegant benefits. The most apparent is the fact that a halo creates the illusion of a center stone being significantly bigger than it actually is. If you’ve a smaller-carat diamond, halos make them look even bigger—each halo adds a “carat” to the size of a stone. Also, halos are a vintage look that expresses the boldness of the Art Deco period in modern styles. If you’re a lover of halo engagement rings, you’ll find a lot to love in the collections offered by Smyth Jewelers.
