A little black dress, a pair of pumps, a set of pearls and a pair of diamond studs are all hallmarks of classic style. Yet, there is another beauty which has solidified its status as a member of the “classic” crowd . . . the beautiful halo setting.
We don’t know what happened, but suddenly halo settings were everywhere. Newly engaged women were quickly showing off their rings and before we knew it, the flood gates opened on this look. However, things slowly began to shift and what was once considered a fad is now firmly entrenched in the establishment.
Yet just because something is considered mainstream, doesn’t mean that it can’t continue to evolve and grab headlines. This year seems to be all about the double halo look. We imagine it’s because one halo makes a diamond look larger, so just think how much bigger a center stone looks when surrounded by a double halo.
Another reason we think this setting has joined other classic jewelry looks is because it is versatile enough to fit with any center stone. Whether you have a round, pear, cushion, marquise or any other cut, you can have it surrounded by a beautiful halo (or two). Just look around PriceScope at all the different diamond and gemstone engagement rings with halo settings. It doesn’t even stop there though; the halo look has made the leap from engagement rings to earrings, bracelets and necklaces. We’re head over heels for all the designers giving us endless options to wear these heavenly halo settings.
