Good things about halo settings

petite halo

Halos make a diamond look bigger.

This makes a halo element a perfect way to accentuate a center stone without spending as much on a larger stone. A diamond twice the size is much more than twice the price, so a halo can help create a bigger look for less cost.

Halo settings protect the main gemstone.

Although diamonds and sapphires are two of are natures' hardest substance, the thin outer edge can be chipped if it is hit against a hard surface.

Potential downsides to a halo

The extra diamonds and work can be expensive, and the small stones can need maintenance over the years.
We try to minimize use of prongs for accent stones on, which can snag and wear down. French set, Scalloped fishtail, Bead set and similar styles can be more durable.
