1. Enhances The Appearance of the Center Stone

The hidden halo engagement ring, also commonly referred to as under halo setting, is an innovative and unique take on the classic halo design.  Although similar in theory, both settings yield very different results. The best way to describe a hidden halo setting is that instead of framing the center stone, the halo sits below it, “hidden” and acts as a base for the diamond.

From a birds eye view, you may not be able to see the halo but from any other angle the hidden halo stands out and accentuates the precious center stone . The hidden halo setting can make the center stone seem up to 15% larger. It gives the diamond a platform made of even more diamonds that allows it to shine center stage.

2. Hidden Halo Is Compatible For All Diamond Shapes

 Unlike some other types of settings, the hidden halo setting fits perfectly with any shaped diamond. In fact, its growing popularity can be attributed to its ability to make any diamond shine, no matter the shape – oval, radiant, round, pear, etc. This particular setting also allows for plenty of room to add diamonds to the band without cluttering the center stone.

4. Comparable Pricing to Traditional Rings

As for price, there’s no major difference between a halo or a hidden halo setting. The hidden halo setting may not need as many diamonds since it is positioned below the center stone and doesn’t frame the entire diamond but they typically are priced evenly.
