When shopping for the perfect engagement ring, it can seem like there is an endless selection of settings, styles and diamonds to choose from. Given the vast number of combinations available, there is some truth to this.
An Oval Shaped Diamond, Perfectly Styled
We are always searching for the best, and today we will show you our picks for the Best Oval Halo Engagement Rings; keep reading!
From Contemporary to Vintage, Art Deco to Classic, everyone will have favorites or even a few favorites! More than one is just fine and if you haven’t done so already, make room on your favorites list for the Oval Halo!
We are often seduced by the round brilliant because of its sparkle and brilliance. Although a round diamond is a classic and beautiful cut known for its brilliance, you can still get that sparkle in other shapes, and the
Oval is a prime example! We cover more on the sparkle in “Diamonds – The Best Part & The Art of Buying Diamonds Online Part 1 – Cut” to buy the most beautifully cut diamonds online. Be sure to check those out.
For now, know that if a diamond is cut well, the light that enters will reflect through the top giving your diamond more sparkle! The sparkle will not exist in poorly cut diamonds because the entering light will not reflect. Regardless of shape, all diamonds require symmetry to shine.
The Oval is similar to a round diamond regarding its characteristics, facets and overall look. So, if you want the fire and brilliance of a round-cut diamond but want a unique shape, the Oval might be perfect for you.
If you’re not familiar with Oval Halo Engagement Rings, or a Halo in general, they are exactly how they sound. It’s like a diamond wearing a halo, just like an angel. How perfect! Sorry for being so cheesy! lol
By styling your centre stone with a halo, you’ve essentially framed your diamond. We love how it accents your centre stone and gives your entire ring more sparkle and brilliance.
Look at our top 5 picks and see what we’re talking about.

The advantage of choosing a halo setting is that it will accent your centre stone in a way that makes it appear larger. Let’s say you were looking at a 1.5 Carat Classic Oval
Solitaire and loved the size of the stone, but maybe it was over what you had wanted to spend.
What you can do is take a 0.75-1.00 Carat Center Stone and put that into a halo setting and now put that next to that solitaire.
The .75 will cost less, and the halo will make it appear the same as that 1.5 that might have been out of reach.
You are also giving your entire ring extra fire, sparkle and brilliance and who the heck wouldn’t want a little extra of that!
With that said, maybe that 1.5 isn’t quite as large as you had wanted; look what happens when you add a halo. Boom!
With thousands of diamonds to choose from; how do you get the most bang for your buck?
We got you covered! Obviously 🙂
