Hidden Halo Lab Diamond Engagement Rings

A hidden halo engagement ring is the perfect choice for those seeking something special and luxurious. Hidden halo engagement rings feature a hidden row of smaller diamonds or gemstones beneath the centre stone, adding a subtle sparkle from the side and enhancing the overall sublimity of the ring. This style strikes the perfect balance between contemporary glamour and classic elegance, creating the ultimate engagement ring that will turn heads time and time again. 

The hidden halo design is a relatively recent trend in the realm of engagement rings. It emerged as a way to give a stunning and unique twist to the traditional halo setting. By incorporating a hidden row of diamonds or gemstones, the ring achieves a multi-dimensional effect and offers a sense of surprise and intrigue, as the hidden row of stones is often only visible from certain angles or when the ring is viewed from the side. This creates a delightful and unexpected detail that sets the ring apart from more traditional halo designs.

Created with pavé set, ethically grown lab diamonds, the hidden halo elevates the ring setting, creating a special look that truly stands out. Some benefits and features of a hidden halo diamond engagement ring include:

1. Enhanced brilliance: The hidden halo design adds extra sparkle to the centre diamond, making it appear larger and more dazzling.

2. Unique and stylish: The hidden halo setting is a modern and trendy twist on the traditional halo design, making it a great choice for those who want a unique and eye-catching engagement ring.

3. Versatility: The hidden halo design can be customised to complement different diamond shapes and sizes, allowing for a personalised and individualised ring.

Overall, hidden halo diamond engagement rings offer a combination of elegance, uniqueness, and enhanced sparkle, making them a popular choice among celebrities and couples looking for a modern twist on traditional engagement rings.

Amongst the celebrities who have chosen hidden halo diamond engagement rings, some notable examples include Beyoncé, Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Hailey Bieber and Katherine Schwarzenegger.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a hidden halo diamond engagement ring unique? 

A halo diamond engagement ring with a hidden halo is unique because it features a centre diamond surrounded by a "hidden halo" of smaller diamonds or gemstones that are only visible from particular angles when worn. This design creates a stunning and eye-catching effect. The hidden halo also adds extra sparkle and enhances the overall beauty of the ring. Additionally, these pretty designs are available in a variety of styles and can be customised with a coloured fancy diamond or hidden halo gemstones to fit the wearer's preferences, making each ring truly unique and special.

Are there any risks in choosing a hidden halo diamond engagement ring?

Yes, there are a few risks to consider when choosing a hidden halo diamond engagement ring. While these risks exist, they can be mitigated with proper care and maintenance. Regular cleaning, routine inspections, and being cautious by removing your ring whilst doing physical activities can help minimise these factors.

1. Prong wear: If the halo diamonds of the ring are a little exposed, they can be prone to damage through daily wear and tear and catching on clothing. Since they are smaller and set in a more delicate way, they may be more susceptible to being knocked causing chipping or loosening.

2. Careful resizing: In case you want to resize the ring in the future, it can be more complicated and potentially costly with this style, especially if it also has diamonds set in the shoulders of the ring. Since there are more diamonds, resizing it could require additional work or even resetting the melée diamonds, as they can move ever so slightly within their setting.

4. Upkeep and maintenance: The intricate design of a hidden halo setting can make maintenance and cleaning slightly more challenging compared to a simple solitaire setting. The small stones in the halo can trap dirt and debris more easily, requiring professional regular cleaning. It's important to factor in the additional time and cost involved in maintaining the ring's sparkle and brilliance.The halo diamonds may also require regular maintenance and tightening to ensure they stay securely in place. It's essential to have the ring inspected periodically to address any potential issues proactively. Ethica offers a not for profit Ring Maintenance Service helping you keep your halo diamond ring in perfect condition.

What is a hidden halo setting, and how does it differ from a traditional halo?

Hidden Halo Engagement Ring:

This unique setting features a band of smaller diamonds strategically placed beneath the centre stone, often at an angle.

The halo remains hidden from a direct top-down view, only revealing its subtle sparkle when viewed from the side or at an angle. This creates a delicate and understated look, perfect for those who prefer a touch of surprise and elegance without overwhelming brilliance.

The hidden halo can also make the centre stone appear slightly larger, adding to its visual impact.

Traditional Halo Engagement Ring:

In contrast, a traditional halo setting features a complete circle of smaller diamonds fully encircling the centre stone.

This prominent halo is visible from all angles, maximising sparkle and creating a bold and glamorous statement.

It's ideal for those who love the dazzling effect and want their centre stone to take centre stage with undeniable brilliance.

Matching Your Style:

The choice between hidden and traditional halo settings ultimately depends on your personal preference:

Subtle Elegance: If you desire a subtle and elegant look with a hint of hidden sparkle, the hidden halo might be the perfect choice.

Bold Statement: If you crave maximum brilliance and a bold statement piece, the traditional halo would be a stunning option.


Hidden halos might be slightly easier to clean due to the less exposed diamonds underneath the centre stone. However, both settings require regular professional cleaning to maintain their brilliance.

What are the different centre stone shapes available in the Hidden Halo collection?

Here at Ethica Diamonds we understand the importance of personal expression so we offer a diverse range of centre stone shapes in our Hidden Halo collection:
