Gather round! Cluster engagement rings are where the sparkle’s at.
An alternative to the traditional solitaire style setting, cluster engagement rings take a more holistic approach to sparkle. Multiple smaller diamonds are combined to create the illusion of a much larger stone, giving you more bling for your buck.
Depending on the ring, these smaller diamonds will either surround the center stone or congregate in the center, taking its place. The individual stones have a lower carat weight than a regular-sized center stone, making cluster engagement rings less expensive overall.
Deep down, we’re all suckers for sparkle. The more light a diamond returns to our eyes, the more tingly we feel inside. We’ve rounded up the finest clusters we could muster… so go ahead and pick your luster!

Cluster engagement rings date as far back as the 18th century, when diamonds were typically set around a center stone in a loose, almost crowded manner. By the early 20th century, halo settings had taken on a more orderly form, with diamonds positioned more precisely around a center stone.
While halos tend to appear more linear and clusters more crowded, the difference is so subtle that the terms are generally interchangeable. Whatever you choose to call them, these super-sparkly rings are a wonderful throwback to a bygone era of romance and charm.
