What is a Hidden Halo Engagement Ring?
A hidden halo engagement ring is simply an engagement ring with a ring of diamonds around the main setting that is only visible when looking at the ring from the side.
A hidden halo engagement ring is a type of engagement ring where the smaller diamonds or gemstones are set in a hidden row under the center stone. This creates the appearance of a larger center stone and adds extra sparkle to the ring.
A halo ring is one in which the diameter of the halo of diamonds or gemstones surrounding the centre stone is greater than the diameter of the centre stone. If the halo's diameter is smaller, it's a hidden halo setting. When the table of the centre stone faces in your direction, you will not see the halo.
Halo engagement rings typically feature a large diamond solitaire encircled by numerous smaller stones.

What Types of Center Stones Can Be Used In A Hidden Halo Engagement Ring?
A hidden halo engagement ring can be set with a variety of center stones, including diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and other gemstones. The center stone can be any shape, including round, oval, princess, pear, marquise, cushion, and more.
When choosing a center stone for a hidden halo engagement ring, it's important to consider the size and shape of the stone in relation to the size and number of the smaller diamonds or gemstones in the hidden row. The center stone should be large enough to make a statement but not so large that it overwhelms the ring.
Are Hidden Halo Engagement Rings More Expensive?
The cost of a hidden halo engagement ring depends on several factors, including the type of metal used, the quality and size of the center stone, and the number and size of the smaller diamonds or gemstones in the hidden row. In general, hidden halo engagement rings can be more expensive than traditional halo engagement rings due to the extra diamonds or gemstones involved.
However, the final cost will depend on the specific design and materials used. A smaller center stone with fewer or smaller diamonds in the hidden row can make the ring more affordable. On the other hand, a larger center stone with more diamonds or gemstones in the hidden row can significantly increase the price of the ring.
Overall, the cost of a hidden halo engagement ring can vary widely depending on the specific design and materials used, and it's important to set a budget before starting the search for the perfect ring.
