Buying Jewelry in Vienna, VA? Read On!


Halo jewelry is believed to have made its debut in the 1920, alongside the Art Deco style, and the style has had a resurgence of late. The settings—which are found in rings, earrings, pendants, and broaches—feature a ring (which is not always circular) of precious gems or metal around a larger center stone.

Center stones can be colorless diamonds or any other precious gem, and are most popular in round and princess cut, which create round halos. But don’t discount the softening effect of halos on pointy marquise or square stones; ovals and radiant cuts also wear halos beautifully.

When diamonds—which are probably the most popular choice for halos—are used for the halo, they are generally pave or micropave, and when they attract light, they draw attention back to the center stone. Contrasting gemstones create an entirely different look that is just as stunning, and allow more room for customizing your color choices. Imagine a beautiful ruby surrounded by diamonds—or the reverse.

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of the halo design is that the halo makes the center stone look larger than it is, a glittering illusion that gives you more visual bang for the buck.
