I randomly walked into a store close to my work just now and found a store that sells what they call “invisible halo” rings, the name is “Lovebright”. Basically it is a smaller round surrounded by even smaller stones in a halo that I could BARELY see after staring at the ring for a long time. It makes the ring look like a huge solitaire. The setting seemed nicely done because it was so tight together. And the price was obviously amazing.
What do bees think of this? I imagine some people will think it’s trying to pass your ring off as bigger than it is.

It is only the business of one person- the one wearing it. Judging another lady’s ring is petty. No matter what you think they love it and the sentiment it represents

Who cares what others think about your ring besides you and your fiance. If ya’ll like it…buy it and wear it with confidence.

I saw these when looking for my solitaire. And yes, that’s exactly what the sales staff told me – it looks like a very sparkly solitaire, but only up close can you tell it’s not one stone. They are much cheaper than a solitaire of the same price, of course. The sales lady said they are very popular because you get a large-looking stone for a good price.
I thought they were very pretty – but I didn’t want one for my engagement ring. Everyone has their own taste – and for my engagement ring I’ve always wanted just a solitaire, so that’s what I got. If you’re not as picky as me, this might be the perfect ring for you. You certainly get a lot of bling and sparkle for less $$$. I’ve included a photo below:

Oh I agree! I just wonder if that’s what people would think- personally I would enjoy having spent less on a ring and probably be inclined to tell everyone how sweet it is that we found this!

I have a halo and no one has ever accused me of getting one just to make my diamond look bigger.
The ring posted above kind of reminds me of Tacori’s “bloom” halo, which is a very small halo right under the center. I had a couple of Tacoris on my Pinterest page. The bloom halos are very pretty in person.
Edit – OK, I misunderstood what kind of rings Lovebright were. They’re basically cluster settings. Normally I don’t like clusters but I’ve seen some recently (at Costco of all places) that are very pretty and unless you look close, really look like one big stone in the center. I think they can be a great choice for a couple on a budget or if they just really like the look.

Many small diamond sparkle more than one big one. As long as they are made well so you don’t have to worry about loss of stones, I think it’s a great option. It also gives you the ability to avoid the height associated with big stones. I personally prefer very low set rings.

It comes down to preference. There are halo rings and there are invisible settings and both can be beautiful. An invisible set ring with four large prongs that don’t hold anything but instead only add to the illusion is definitely intended to appear to be one larger stone. But realistically, that is really no one’s business except the person wearing it.

I also prefer lower set rings! they had some higher and lower.

I’ve seen some of these and I love them, do you have a photo?!

That’s a pretty ring, but I don’t get the invisible halo thing. That halo is highly visible.

I do not have a photo. I wish I had of taken one but I can always go back- I want my BF to look at them because his job is a lot about detecting small differences in things so I’m curious if he can see it. I started a LOT in the bright store lighting and couldnt tell. I would like to see it in normal lightting to see if maybe the sparkle obscured the seams. It was (or looked like) just a simple solitaire- not like the Tacori setting (although, I do really like that setting and now I know the name of it!)
It was a round brliiant and I could not figure out out they did it honestly. I think being a round makes it harder to see the “seams” between diamonds. But I would have figured there would be gaps when you connect rounds on rounds (does that make sense), but I couldnt see it!
The guy said he’s had them since October and has sold many.

I did a quick google search and I like them! To me, it doesn’t look like your trying to make the diamond look bigger, it just looks like a dainty halo.

aclockworklilac : It’s not that the halo’s invsible, it’s that the cluster of stones making up the center stone are “set together invisibly” (so it appears to be one large center stone instead of multiple smaller stones). The first posted photo you commented on is misleading, as that’s neither a Lovebright, nor an “invisible halo” ring – that’s a solid 2ct+ center stone (definitely not sparkle for less $$)!
