Maximize Center Stones with Beauty and Balance

Fancy White Halo with Diamond SidestonesLooking to maximize the appearance and size of your center diamond? Hoping to create balance and lend a sense of delicateness to a large gem? “Halo” settings that wreath the center stone in diamonds are the perfect choice for all sizes and shapes of gems.

Blue Sapphire in Halo Setting with Diamond Sidestones

The Halo style originated as an “illusion” setting, or a setting designed to create the illusion of a larger center diamond, at the turn of the century. At the turn of the new millennium, the Halo was reinvented as a way to balance a large gem in a delicate setting. Brilliant Earth finds both styles equally stunning!

White Gold Halo with Diamond Sidestones


Now, thanks to our modern jeweler’s approach of using full cut diamonds (diamonds cut with the same number of facets as our larger gems), our Halo settings most definitely outshine their vintage counterparts! Whether your tastes tend to vintage, classic, contemporary or modern, the shapes and lines of our Halo settings are sure to complement your center diamond and dazzle you!

If I have a center stone that is set now can you reset the stone into one of your halo settings?

The main portion of Brilliant Earth’s social mission is to only handle and set gemstones of verified, conflict free origin. Because of this mission, we will only set gemstones that have been purchased from us directly, as we are currently the leading supplier of ethical origin gemstones. We will not set outside diamonds in our settings, and we are unable to sell our settings without center gems as each ring is made-to-order around, and in proportion to, the center gem.
