About Our Yellow Gold Halo Rings
As with every Queensmith ring, we craft each yellow gold halo ring with care and passion at our Hatton Garden jewellers. Despite the intricate nature of a halo engagement ring, our goldsmiths obsess over the smallest details to ensure even the most minute aspects are seamlessly finessed, using a hybrid of traditional and cutting-edge techniques.
Skilfully Crafted in 18K Yellow Gold
Our yellow gold halo engagement rings are crafted with care and passion in 18k yellow gold. The 24k carat gold found in nature is too soft and garish for fine jewellery, so an alloy is created with stronger, paler metals like zinc and silver. We responsibly source 18K gold from local suppliers, before our in-house goldsmiths begin the crafting process from scratch.
How to design your gold halo engagement ring
When it comes to the design of your yellow gold halo engagement ring, the most prominent styles of halos to choose from are pavé and scallop. A pavé halo ring looks simple, clean, and is a sure-fire way to achieve a slight vintage flare whilst keeping the ring straightforward and refined. A scallop halo is a contemporary classic, and while still refined offers a little more sparkle at more light enters each tiny diamond through the side of the scalloped setting.
Choose the centre stone
A good place to start designing your gold halo ring is with your centre stone. Define whether you’re after a colourless diamond, the traditional choice, or something a little more unusual, like a coloured sapphire, ruby or emerald.
Choose the shape
Yellow gold halo engagement rings have a unique charm, and the shape of the diamond or gemstone you choose to set can drastically change its character. The versatile metal colour looks feminine with shapes like round, cushion, pear and oval diamond rings. Oval halo engagement rings in yellow gold are a beautiful alternative to the typical round
If you’re after a yellow gold halo engagement ring with a little edge, try diamond shapes like Asscher cuts, princess cuts, marquise cuts and emerald cuts. These geometric shapes make for a super contemporary aesthetic - consider similar shaped diamonds for the halo, like baguette cut diamonds.
