Engagement rings with the halo setting are so common today. So what if you like this style, but you also wish to make it unique? Luckily, there are almost never-ending ways to customize a halo engagement ring so you can make it unique and one that fits your personal style.
- Use a Non-Diamond Gemstone as the Centerpiece
This is one of the great ways to design a piece which stands out and cost a lot less than a halo diamond engagement ring. Other gems come at a much cheaper price than a diamond weighing the same. The contrast between white diamond accents and the rich shade of another gem is beautiful.
The heirloom engagement ring of Kate Middleton has an oval-shaped sapphire at the center, surrounded by a diamonds halo, and it is stunning. Other gems that are beautiful in the setting include ruby, morganite, emerald, and yellow sapphire.
- Use Different Gems for the Halo
Alternatively, you can use non-diamond gems for the halo. Remember that this is not the most affordable option though, when budget is the main concern you have.
- Go for a Different Diamond Cut
Princess and round cut diamonds dominate the engagement ring fingers of married women. Simply choosing another shape or cut will make your engagement ring unique. A halo adds more glamour to nearly every shape.
- Try a Geometric Diamond Halo
If your taste is more vintage, then you may love the look of a geometric halo (like an octagon shape). Geometric halos are a throwback to the Art Deco era jewelry. Asscher and round diamonds look very nice in classic geometric halo settings.
- Different Metal Color
Platinum and white gold are still the most popular ring band options. To make it stand out, consider a yellow gold ring particularly if you are planning to pair it with a diamond with a lower color grade. Another beautiful choice is rose gold. If you want a more vintage and romantic look, go for one of the halo cut rose gold engagement rings.
- Customize the Shank
Do you like the look of a vintage diamond halo? If you do, then you can add more interest to it with a shank that is more unique. Go for a split shank, one with vintage motifs, or a twisted one. You can select something that is as elaborate or simple as you want.
