Stunning with a celestial feel, halo style jewelry is on trend and classic enough that it will never go out of style. If you’re looking for more bling for your buck, halo pieces—whether engagement rings, necklaces, or any other piece—are a great choice due to their design and beauty. Read on to learn more about this timeless style that is making a major statement in fashion today.
Jewelry can be considered “halo” style when a larger center stone is surrounded in a circle by smaller stones that form a halo. These pavé gemstones radiate light, giving increased sparkle and shine. This style is found on many types of jewelry, including rings, necklaces, and earrings.
Halo jewelry hit its peak popularity in the 1920s when Art Deco was at its height of fame. Characterized by attention to detail, Art Deco jewelry focuses on symmetry, geometrics, and adding more visual interest to alternative, unadorned styles. Where many women are drawn to a simple, solitaire ring, the halo effect provides an elegant twist.
The cut of the stone varies, and includes everything from princess cut to round cut to emerald and more. That’s what makes halo styles so great—the halo can be added to just about anything, depending on your personal style and fashion personality.
Jewelry with halo elements continue to be popular choices and have become a classic style that lives on through generations. A major resurgence of the style occurred with the debut of the royal engagement ring—first in 1981 with Princess Diana, and again in 2010 with Kate Middleton (wearing the same ring!)—which featured a stunning blue sapphire oval stone encircled by diamonds.
Today, women love the halo style for its sophisticated look that’s a little more glitzy than solitaires. Halo pieces can also be a budget-friendly option since the center stone is often smaller than a piece featuring one single stone. With the halo included, these pieces give the look of greater bling and more luxury. For ladies who desire a larger stone, but want a more affordable choice, halo styles are the way to go.
The classic design is so versatile, it works with both casual and formal outfits. Try halo earrings with your next cocktail dress or office wear during the week. Or rock your halo engagement ring daily with everything from sweats to jeans to dresses and more. Keep your halo close to your heart with a ruby halo necklace that radiates love and romance. Finally, if you’re looking for a truly unique take on the classic halo, look for pieces that combine the classic halo style with a different, modern feel.
