How to make her engagement ring appear bigger than it is with a 'halo'?
Did you know that 'halo' is a term that is primarily used in meteorology and astronomy? A halo is a natural phenomenon where a circle of light surrounds the sun or moon. In the world of jewellery and diamonds a halo comprises a ring of smaller diamonds that encircles a large central stone. How does the halo make her engagement ring appear bigger than it is? The brilliance from all the stones creates the illusion of one impressive diamond.
The halo setting that looks like an aureole was devised in the 1920s and as such is ideal for those looking for a vintage engagement ring. Are you a bit light in the pocket at the moment with your budget for her engagement ring? If so, why not have a couple of extra side stones added at a later date?
Silence may be golden, but diamonds are worth a yell of happiness.
It's not just with the pavé setting that you can create an optical illusion. The bezel setting too makes your centre diamond appear bigger than it is. Bezel actually refers to the way in which the stone is kept in place. With a bezel setting the diamond is encased as it were by the precious metal. Not only does your diamond appear to be bigger but it is protected even more against friction and damage. An added bonus!
