While the Halo ring can trace its roots back to the Georgian era (1714-1837), the style as it’s most frequently recognized today dates back to the Art Deco movement. This moment in history was ruled by strong symmetry and geometric patterns which carried through from architecture to fashion, art and jewelry. A gorgeous center stone surrounded by a ring of pavé set diamonds is still one of the most coveted designs by brides the world over.

When it comes to the halo ring, the most traditional design is never out of style. It just works.
