From your favourite movie star to the idle songstress, halo engagement rings are everywhere, and why not? Who would say "no" to a massive diamond without having to put a dent in their wallet? 

Halo engagement rings have become a favourite because you can style them with any diamond shape of your choice while creating your dream bespoke diamond jewellery in London. They are perfect for those who want to flaunt a bigger rock without breaking the bank. 

But as with any great idea, there are a few downsides to consider. For example, finding the perfect wedding band to complement your halo ring can be a bit of a challenge. But fear not - we've got you covered. Our guide will help you navigate the tricky waters of wedding band pairing and ensure that your ring game is on point. So, let's get started!

Top 3 Wedding Bands You Need To Consider For Your Halo Rings 

Wedding bands can be tricky, especially when you are choosing one to pair with your halo diamond rings. You need a band that beautifully captures the essence of your halo while adding to the overall structural appeal of your ring. Luckily, there are three distinct types of wedding bands that are a match made in heaven for your halo engagement rings and will

Contoured Wedding Bands: 

A contoured wedding band is designed with a slight curve, typically where gemstones are placed, to enable it to fit perfectly with your engagement ring. Rather than being completely circular, the contoured band has a gentle wave that sits flush against the engagement ring, providing a seamless look.

Notched Wedding Bands 

The unique V-shape design of a notched wedding band allows it to fit snugly against a halo engagement ring, creating a stunning double layer of sparkle that appears as if it is a part of the ring. Notched wedding bands are widely paired with a variety of diamond shapes, from oval cut to princess cut engagement rings in the UK; this wedding band is the perfect choice to accommodate your diamonds without them looking out of place. 

Jacket Wedding Bands  

Rather than a single circlet, a jacket wedding band consists of two interlocking rings holding the engagement ring between them, forming a unified piece of jewellery with three bands in total. This style often features two bands that secure the engagement ring, resulting in a more impactful engagement ring design. 

What To Consider When Choosing A Wedding Band To Pair With Your Halo Engagement Ring? 

Understand Your Halo Ring Design: Before you begin your search for the perfect wedding band, take some time to familiarise yourself with the design of your halo engagement ring. A halo ring features a center stone surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds or gemstones. Pay attention to the shape, size, and setting of both the center stone and the halo, as these factors will influence your choice of wedding band.

Consider Metal Compatibility: One of the most important considerations when choosing a wedding band is metal compatibility. You'll want to select a metal that complements the metal of your engagement ring to ensure a cohesive look. Common choices include platinum, white gold, yellow gold, & rose gold. If your halo ring features a platinum setting, for example, a platinum wedding band would be an excellent match.

Match the Band Width: The width of your wedding band should be proportional to the width of your engagement ring's band. If your halo ring has a thin band, opt for a delicate wedding band to maintain a balanced aesthetic. Conversely, if your engagement ring band is wider, a thicker wedding band may be more suitable. Aim for harmony in terms of bandwidth to create a cohesive and visually pleasing combination.

Choose a Contour or Straight Band: Depending on the design of your halo engagement ring, you may need to choose between a contour or straight wedding band. A contour band is specially designed to fit around the curvature of your engagement ring, creating a seamless look when worn together. On the other hand, a straight band can also complement a halo ring, especially if the engagement ring has a simple and classic design. Consider trying on different styles to see which option complements your ring best.

Diamond or Gemstone Accent: Another option to consider is whether you want your wedding band to feature diamonds or gemstones that match those in your halo ring. You can choose a band with small diamonds or gemstones that mirror the ones in the halo for a coordinated look. Alternatively, you may opt for a plain metal band to let your engagement ring take center stage. Think about the level of sparkle and detail you desire, and select a wedding band that enhances the beauty of your halo ring without overpowering it. If you have previously opted for one of our affordable engagement rings in London, you can now opt for a far more extravagant wedding band, to balance out the look of your entire halo engagement ring. 

Personalise with Engraving: Personalising your wedding band with engraving is a meaningful way to add sentiment and significance to your ring. Consider engraving your wedding date, initials, or a special message on the inside of the band. This customisation adds a personal touch to your wedding band and makes it even more unique to you as a couple.

Try Different Stacking Options: Stacking wedding bands has become increasingly popular, allowing couples to mix and match different styles to create a customised look. If you're interested in stacking, experiment with pairing your halo engagement ring with multiple wedding bands of varying widths, textures, and designs. This versatile approach allows you to create a one-of-a-kind combination that reflects your personal style and preferences.
