Defining Traits

Even though the idea of the halo was conceived centuries ago, this glimmering setting ring really came into fruition during the Art Deco era of the 1920s.  With the inception of surrounding a row (or two) of smaller stones around the center jewel, artisans embraced the idea and continued to create various looks using diamonds as well as colorful gemstones as the "halo," as women were pleased with the fact their ring could give a larger, more prominent appearance.
