Halo or Solitaire? How to Choose Between Two Timeless Engagement Ring Styles

Engagement ring shopping can be an exhilarating time for everyone involved. The engagement ring, while stunning to look at, is meant to represent more than aesthetics. It represents the devotion and love two people share for each other. Whether you’re shopping in secret for the one you love or shopping alongside them, having some guidance can help you make that perfect choice, one that will last for generations.

The Timeless Solitaire

As the most popular engagement ring style in the world, the classic solitaire engagement ring is what most people think of when they think of an engagement ring. There is no style quite as timeless or versatile as the solitaire setting. It has an ability to match any outfit or lifestyle without seeming overly extravagant. With all of today’s engagement ring choices, a solitaire ring can feel exhilaratingly refined and modern, even though it is considered the more traditional engagement ring style.

If you are uncertain what your future wife would like in an engagement ring, solitaire styles are almost always a good choice. The Solitaire collections by designer, Noam Carver, feature classic engagement ring designs with a simple silhouette meant to match any fashion sense. For a truly personalized touch, consider choosing romantic 14K rose gold for the band. Alternatively, you can explore Noam Carver’s other collections, such as their Floral or Vintage collections, for more unique takes on the traditional Solitaire.

Southern California-based designer, Tacori, brings together modern stylings with old-world craftsmanship to create uniquely elegant bridal jewellery that has won the world over. Their solitaire engagement rings adopt the simple refinement of the design, but also adds a personal Tacori touch not found anywhere else.

Halo for Refined Elegance

Halo designs, while not as popular as the solitaire, have become more valued with time as the design creates the illusion of a larger stone, but with a smaller price tag. The ribbon of diamonds that surround the centerstone is the defining feature of a halo engagement ring and it creates a dazzling design that truly makes any diamond shine.

It’s a good idea to go for a halo ring if the bride-to-be enjoys her diamonds. An array of smaller diamonds means more facets, which results in a fiery brilliance unseen in most engagement ring styles. Our selection of halo engagement rings by Hearts On Fire are at the pinnacle of radiant design. Boasting the “World’s Most Perfectly Cut Diamond,” Hearts On Fire made a name for themselves with the highest quality diamonds and cutting-edge designs to match.
