Know your setting: Halo

The halo setting refers to the placement of diamonds or other gemstones in a concentric circle or square around a center stone. The halo setting makes the center stone appear larger - a great option to boost the appearance of a small diamond - and it increases the overall sparkle of the ring.

Do you know the difference between cut and shape? The distinction between a diamond's shape and cut may be confusing at first so let me cut to the point. The shape refers to the appearance of the stone, while the cut refers to the diamond's ability to reflect light.
