I don’t particularly like air line halos with prong settings but I really like them with bezels like the ring you posted. It really adds to the vintage charm of that ring.

This style halo is also called a bezel halo setting.  I personally never liked the look of them.  Plus, it doesn’t allow much light to hit the little diamonds which means you won’t get as much sparkle.

A well cut diamond will still sparkle nicely in a bezel setting. So if this is the route you are going then make sure the diamond has excellent proportions.

That is a very beautiful ring! I had a halo and hated it so I’m biased. My diamond is round brilliant with an excellent cut and looked dull most of the time, just because halo’s are much harder to clean. Of course this might not bother you – I also didn’t like how big the halo made my ring, I felt like I was wearing a superbowl ring!

alabamagirl:  then yes it will be just fine. I really love the idea of having engraving instead of diamonds on the halo, that would look gorgeous!

I don’t have any personal experience with one, but I would imagine it would be difficult to keep clean. Love the look though.

MissSaeyang916:  While some literature has said a bezel won’t allow as much light– that’s not exactly true.  I asked my mom’s friend, who’s a jeweler about this- because I originally had an enclosed gallery bezel.  There’s less stone visible- so you’re not going to get sparkles off the sides or bottom.  But a well cut stone, bezel set- will sparkle just as well as a prong set.  

I have a bezel set but the bottom of the stone is exposed.

Well, I think it would be more difficult because if the space wasn’t there, there would not be a collection of dirt. I dunno, that’s just my lazy sense of clean. 🙂

I don’t have one yet, but just orderedacz and silver version of this Beverly K ring from an eBay jeweler called Niki Gems. It’s a perfect example of an airline halo.
