For those looking for as much sparkle as possible, halo engagement rings provide exactly that—and then some. Pavé diamonds add major sparkle encircling the center stone of the ring, catching the light and tricking the eye to think that the ring is a full carat larger than it really is, thanks to the added finger coverage. In fact, adding a halo is one of the most effective ways to make your engagement ring look bigger. The best halo engagement rings work the pavé border effortlessly into the design so the setting looks clean and seamless—not busy or overdone. “While the trend is moving away from halo settings, we specialize in very delicate halos which will not overpower the diamond but still give lots of extra sparkle,” notes Nicole.
