Shine Bright With a Halo
In a halo setting, your center stone is surrounded by a shimmering ring of smaller accent diamonds. This brilliant halo optically extends the size of your center diamond, making it look much larger.
A hidden halo can make your center stone appear larger.

Round or Halo:
Round shaped engagement rings favor brides who have sophisticated taste but are also traditionalist at heart. Round stones are timeless, effortless, understated and never try too hard.
I’ve learned from my jeweler that a lot of times the stones in halo rings fall out b/c the prongs have to be so small and thin so that the diamond shows. If it’s a heavier prong, it will cover the diamond more. That’s why these stones tend to get knocked out easily.

Six prongs hold a diamond more securely in place. If a prong is accidentally sheared off in a four–prong setting, the center stone can easily fall out (and get lost). … Six prongs offers better protection to the diamond’s girdle than four prongs. Six prongs can make a round shaped diamond or gemstone look rounder.
Pavé setting: To achieve this popular technique, many diamonds 0.20 ct or smaller are set into tapered holes in a metal surface, nestled close to the melee stones next to them. Pavé creates an appearance of uninterrupted diamonds in the band, which can make the center stone look larger.
The newest bands are bolder than ever, with diamond-encrusted, maximalist cigar bands, luxe signet rings and sparkly eternity bands that give the standard solid metal band a serious fashion upgrade.
