Halo ring history

The halo style ring emerged during the Art Deco movement in the 1920s. This movement focused on patterns and symmetry, which is why the halo of diamonds circling the centre gemstone was so popular. The style reemerged during the Hollywood Glamour period, as the ring perfectly represents glitz and glamour. The setting enables the centre stone to look a lot larger, so it is an amazing option for brides looking to make a statement.
