Halo rings came into popularity only a few years back and they have been on fire since. Halos in jewelry were a vintage thing before the modern jewelers raked up the idea and transformed it into a prized motif in modern jewelry. Since then, the halo design has gone under numerous improvisations and each time it was made into something swoon-worthy. Among many halo styles that can be seen in rings today, here are 5 that will totally have your mind blown away at the first glance. So, if you are thinking halo for your proposal ring, then don’t forget to include these in your list of options.
The classic halo, also known as angel’s halo is a style where the circular center stone in a ring is surrounded by a rim of small gemstones in the way of creating a halo. The halo works to enhance the shimmer of the bigger stone by creating a silver lining around it. Although the jewelers have retained the vintage halo in its most pristine form, angel’s halo is only put in vintage-inspired pieces these days. Nevertheless, if your heart is stuck on classic, this is the best there is.
Double halo is the same as angel’s halo, save for an extra circle of gems around the first halo. The second row adds more sparkle and volume to the ring, naturally making it larger and heavier. It’s a great fit for a woman who likes a bit of extra shine in her ornaments, or in other words, someone who can carry off a gorgeous piece of jewelry as an everyday wear with ease.
If you are looking to shift away from the same roundness of rings, then the princess halo presents just the right excuse for you. A little boxy if I may, the princess halo is a halo ring designed with a princess-cut gem at the heart. The halo that encumbers the center stone, in this case, is square with blunt corners.
The floating halo has the advantage of a certain optical illusion. When seen from the top or sides, it appears that the center stone is floating mid-air than set on a sleek stand.
Oval halos appear a lot chunkier and therefore, pricier than round, princess and other conventional cuts. The halo around an oval-cut gem enhances its brilliance to almost that of a round-cut stone.
