I have a few questions about halos. What is the purpose/function of the raised halo/ bridge? If you have a raised halo with a “bridge” under the halo do you still have a gap with your wedding band? Are there advantages or disadvantages to this style?
I’m not sure if I am using the correct terminology lol so I will include a few pictures from google that show what I mean.

@dulcevida: I would think it is so that a wedding band can sit flush with the ring. Mine is set pretty high, but my plain band still has a bit of a gap. It’s mostly hidden by the halo itself, so it doesn’t bother me too much.

My ring is like this. It allows my wedding bed to sit flush with my ring and I love it! Personally, I didn’t want a gap, so this worked realy well for me.

I love your set. Your e-ring is gorgeous!
Thank you for sharing!
I know a lot of bees have halos, but there aren’t many responses. I added a poll to see if I can figure out if all raised halos sit flush or if some have gaps.

@dulcevida: From personal experience, the halo that sits up high will allow more options for a stock wedding band, but the one in the second pic will require a curve band because the basket sits snug on the finger. Depending on high the ring sits up in the second pic, even with a curved band it can look lost next to the ering. That’s the problem FI and I encountered during our month (+) long search for a curved wedding band. Finally, we gave up and decided to go with a custom band.

Mine is raised and the band fits pretty well together

Mine is raised. We just got my band in and it did sort of under the bridge. I don’t have any pictures of it because my FI his it somewhere in the house so I won’t walk around wedding it before our actual wedding. Here’s a pic just to show you how it sits.

@dulcevida: I have a raised halo engagement ring, and the matching wedding band (which is also slightly curved) sits flush against it. I’ve also heard suggestions that the raised settings allow a bit more light in, which makes your diamond sparkle even more. Not sure if that’s a significant effect or not, but I can see how it might be true!

I have a curved wedding band so no gap here..

i feel like mine is to raise the halo higher and the bridge is for the round shank, make sense?

@dulcevida: Mine is raised so there is no gap with the band 🙂
At the same time, I had it designed to be as low profile as possible while still allowing the bands to sit flush.

SoNLoveWithHim: I think you’re right. I see some raised halos that still have gaps like the lower picture I posted but most don’t. Thank you for sharing your insight!
Miss_Mae More light and more sparkles sounds great!!! I have heard that too and I’m hoping it’s true.
BEAUTIFUL rings ladies! Thanks so much for posting your rings. Not only did you help me answer the question, you showed yummy rings for me to gawk at lol win/win!
