If you have glanced in any jewellery shop window or skimmed through a bridal magazine recently, it will come as no shock that Halo Engagement Rings are the most on trend design at the moment. With a small 'Halo' of sparkling diamonds surrounding a beautiful centre stone and some with diamonds down the shoulders, whats not to like? But with this designs popularity increasing, how can you make sure yours stands out from the rest? Consider your centre stone- why not go for a more unusual cut, like the Asscher cut diamond (pictured below) as an alternative to a princess cut or emerald cut. It is a rarer cut not normally seen in an everyday Engagement Ring. Then there are coloured centre stones. Sapphires are second to the Diamond on MOHs scale of Hardness. So why not incorporate this stunning gem into your engagement ring which will be sure to withstand the many years of wearing ahead! Aswell as being tough, sapphires are known to come in a variety of beautiful colours- think pink, peach, purple, yellow, green and blue. This classic style twinned with an unusual stone or cut of diamond will ensure a timeless style of Engagement Ring.
