How to buy a Hidden Halo engagement ring
Our guide to finding the Hidden Halo engagement ring that's right for you.
A Hidden Halo engagement ring is a modern update of the classic Halo setting. Small diamonds circle around a solitaire diamond, but for the Hidden Halo, these diamonds are placed inside an elevated prong setting. The halo they form is best seen from the side, instead of looking straight down, which is what gives this ring its “hidden” name.
When you buy an engagement ring, your decision should be based on personal taste, not trends. However, there are timeless Hidden Halo styles that continue to be sought after again and again.Hidden Halo Oval engagement rings

Yes, Hidden Halo rings can make a diamond look bigger. But this is due to the high 4-prong setting that holds both the solitaire diamond and halo of hidden diamonds in place. Because it lifts the diamond slightly higher up off the finger, it gives the illusion that the diamond is bigger. The halo itself does not make the diamond appear larger, however.

Frequently asked questions
A Hidden Halo’s diamonds are placed inside an elevated prong setting, slightly beneath a solitaire diamond. A traditional Halo places these diamonds around the top. This means that a hidden halo is best seen from the side, instead of looking straight down, which is what gives this ring its “hidden” name.

Engagement rings and wedding rings should be cleaned once a week to keep them shining bright and germ-free.
A simple weekly cleaning routine involves soaking your ring in a small bowl filled with warm water and a few drops of liquid dishwashing soap. After thirty to forty five minutes, remove the ring and brush it gently with a soft-bristle toothbrush, then rinse and pat dry with a soft towel. Because the hidden halo is an extra surface that can attract dirt, be sure to thoroughly clean your diamond ring by brushing gently around the prongs and underneath the pavé set diamonds.
VRAI engagement rings are also eligible for a complimentary annual cleaning through our Lifetime Care Package.
While your Hidden Halo engagement ring can be worn throughout most of the day, it’s best to remove it for manual work like gardening, or for exercise that involves your hands, like weight-lifting or yoga. For comfort, you should also remove your ring while sleeping.
The hidden halo of diamonds will make the overall look of your engagement ring appear to shine brighter. But the halo does not affect the diamond’s shine directly. Because the halo is not visible when looking directly down at the diamond, it does not enhance its brilliance or scintillation.
The best way to know your ring size is by measuring it with a ring sizer. VRAI offers complimentary ring sizers, which makes finding your ring size at home effortless. Secure the end of the sizer through the buckle to form a ring shape. Slip your desired finger through the loop. Pull the end through until the sizer fits snug but is not overly tight. When it fits correctly, look at the little black arrow and note your ring size.
