We know on PS that halo rings have become all the rage, but in a high end bridal magazine I picked up, they are exploding everywhere. Just thought I''d share some pics I scanned in of some halos, to give everyone more eye candy, and ideas

I thought this was a nice yet different take on the halo, the ring on the right (but get rid of those prongs!)

holy crap that last one is awesome!!

funny but i think PS is usually ahead of the trend. we have seen halos on here for months now and finally they are in all the mags.

halos are definitely 2005..and maybe some of 2006 too. what will be next?!

diamond eternity was 2004 and some of 2005! i love that i got MINE in early 2003! i guess i am a trendsetter.

Those little goodies are all very bling-a-licious. i must admit, I love the halo/pave band style, but I prefer it too be a little less blinding -- a bit more understated.

It''s tough being a trendsetter, isn''t it Mara?!!!

These halos are everywhere now, and they do seem like they''ve been on PS forever. I hope they don''t get dated. I do love that they kinda hearken back to vintage rings as well. Just YUMMY.

It''s truly out of this world. I''m sure the design appeared in a dream or something! It''s just too unreal..like somthing reverse-engineered from alien jewelery tech! LOL!

I love it!

Aren''t there awards for this sort of thing? OMG! I would just sit and drool for a week. not eating or moving at all. just staring, wasting away...

Sure there are... try AGTA''s - the collections of the ''Bridal'' section are quite something, really.

Simon G has these aparently simple rings with prongs inlayed with small marquise cut diamonds. I really like those when they came out ! The design would work wonderfully withsome color, IMO.

FG I don''t think that either the eternity style or the halo''s will go out of style....they are classic IMO as opposed to some of the styles that are more ''modern'' and/or trendy like the big cluster diamond gold 80''s jewelry (
23.gif
)...and they do hearken back to the old vintage or estate days...so that stuff will always come back into fashion at some point...and the rest of the time you can just be ''unique''!

If I ever change my setting, I have to think it would be for a halo style. (Wouldn't it make my new 2.36 look HUGE?!!

)

I agree with Mara that the look is truly "timeless" BUT it wouldn't matter if DID "go out of style", because where I live (Podunk, USA!)

) we are about 5-10 years "behind the trends" anyway!!! haha!

I love them esp. when they match the woman''s eye-color or echo key wardrobe-decor/signature colors.

OTOH, My eyes are brown and my wardrobe is all over the place..the closest I have to a signature shade is lots of deep red/brick red/garnet fabrics in my closet and bed linens... So that''s what I chose at first. Also my husband''s birthstone is garnet. Mine is yellow topaz/citrine(yawn).

Diamonds are so wonderfully neutral!

Sorry for veering off-topic.

***

I never thought I even wanted diamond rings at all(...''Sacrilicious'' as Homer Simpson would say!) until I started noticing Deco(or Deco-inspired) pieces/halos, eternity bands.

I completely lost my mind at that point. LOL!

Everything that goes around comes around eventually. I love the halos but yeah, they will go out of style eventually. Then people who have them will either continue to wear them or upgrade to a different style. I can often tell when someone got married by the style of their ring. You can tell if someone has probably changed their setting or has been wearing the same one since 1974, lol.

When I got engaged in 1979, EVERYONE I knew got a solitaire on a yellow gold band. The only variable was the width of the band and the height of the setting. Side stones were seen as too "60ish." And white gold....ewwwww! That was what our mothers wore! And we told ourselves that the classic yellow gold solitaire would never go out of style. Guess what? It went out of style. It''s still around some, but it sure is not what you see featured in magazines!
