This French-Set Halo Diamond Band Engagement Ring with a traditional round center stone will make your fiancée swoon. Glowing customer reviews call out the beauty of both the stone and unique setting (tip: reviews are located right under the ring photograph and description). Unlike many diamonds that are held in place with prongs, French-set diamonds are set closely together with exposed sides to allow more light to enter each diamond. You get the brilliance of a sparkling pavé halo from the way the jeweler carefully sets the stone. That’s what gives it such a phenomenal sparkle.

The band is simply classic: platinum metal with a flat airline edge creates reflective angles for added radiance.
This ring has it all: a popular shape, diamond band and halo setting. Engagement rings that feature a round stone, such as this French-Set Halo Diamond Band Engagement Ring, are a highly popular choice because a round stone is considered the original “modern” cut of diamond, and can be cut to create more brilliance than any other diamond shape. This is the ring for people who are looking for an engagement ring with unrivaled sparkle. You consider halo engagement rings when you want rings that truly sparkle. If you covet the big glittering rocks that music icons, royalty and film stars sport — be your own kind of celebrity and make the choice.
Unique, but classic, this Modern Bypass Micropavé Diamond Band Engagement Ring with a round center stone serves up “sparkly goodness,” according to one customer review. It showcases rows of sparkling micropavé diamonds that twist around the setting of the center diamond. What does pavé mean? It’s a series of small diamonds that are set within small points of metal, creating a “paved” effect. Micropavé is simply a surface of smaller diamonds. The diamonds are encased within a smooth surface without prongs, so it’s less likely to catch on clothing.
The word Solitaire describes a single diamond or gemstone set into a piece of jewelry. Solitaire engagement rings are a graceful choice for an engagement ring. This Solitaire Diamond Knife-edge Engagement Ring in Platinum review from Joel F. from Denver says it all: “(The) slim band makes the diamond look large….(It’s a) beautiful and classic ring. I love the slim band. I got a .5 carat diamond and it looked big compared to how small the band is. My fiancée loves it and the sizing was perfect, too.”
Oval engagement rings are a stand-out engagement ring choice because of their unique shape. Many brides also enjoy this ring because the oval shape elongates the fingers. An oval diamond, such as the one featured in this French-Set Halo Diamond Band Engagement Ring, has nearly as much brilliance as a round diamond because it can be cut with the same number of facets as a round stone. This makes oval engagement rings a brilliant alternative to the classic round shape. A row of sparkling French-set diamonds on the ring’s band, and a sparkling pavé halo around the oval diamond create an exquisite engagement ring.
Vintage engagement rings are perfect for a bride who loves tradition. The setting of this Vintage Tulip Diamond Band Engagement Ring with a round center stone features petals of diamonds and a tulip-shaped setting for your center diamond. A Ritani customer from Georgia writes, “Awesome Ring!! She loves this ring! It catches peoples attention everywhere she goes and she always gets a lot of great compliments on it. We love the way the stone is set in this ring. We also love the artistic look and design.” An enchanting engagement ring for your lady.
Consider princess cut engagement rings if you adore a mixture of tradition and reinvention. People love the princess cut diamond because it has a classic sparkle and a modern shape. What separates this diamond from the pack is its square shape. In fact, the princess cut diamond is the second most popular cut shape for diamonds (round diamonds are the most popular). The Bypass Micropavé Diamond Band Engagement Ring with a princess center stone offers a unique design and metallic shine. A 5-star review of this diamond? DK from Tennessee sums up his customer experience in one word: “Perfect.”
