What is a Hidden Halo Engagement Ring?

By Brenna Ferrentino on February 26, 2021

Engagement rings with a hidden halo are currently trending. A traditional halo engagement ring features tiny diamonds set around the border of the center stone. This makes the center stone appear larger and adds extra sparkle.

A hidden halo engagement ring features diamonds circling around the base of the center stone. When viewing your engagement ring from above, you won’t see the hidden halo, but it can be viewed from the side. Hidden halos work for any diamond shape.

While a hidden halo won't necessarily make your center stone appear larger, it will add breathtaking artistry and ensure sparkle from additional angles.

Should I choose a traditional halo or a hidden halo engagement ring?  

It’s all about preference. If you are looking for something a bit more unique, go with a hidden halo, since they are less common than traditional halo engagement rings. Some prefer the traditional halo engagement ring since it creates the illusion of a larger diamond, which can be helpful for those on a budget.
