The Timeless Beauty of Halo Jewellery Designs
Kate Middleton’s 18kt oval sapphire ring (which once belonged to Princess Diana), the Heart of the Ocean diamond necklace featured in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, and the iconic Hope Diamond once owned by King Louis XIV have one thing in common. Yes, you guessed it right! All these iconic pieces of jewellery are designed using one of the most popular and timeless settings, called the halo setting. Ever since it made its first appearance a few centuries ago, the halo setting never went out of vogue and is here to stay. Today, halo jewellery designs that include marvellous rings, pendants, and earrings are favoured by many celebrities and fashionistas across the world.
A Short History of the Halo Craze
A typical piece of halo jewellery features a large central diamond in round or cushion-cut surrounded by a number of tiny pave diamonds. The smaller diamonds encircle the central stone in the shape of a halo, and that’s where this particular setting derives its name from. The halo setting made its debut in Europe during the Georgian era in the form of halo rings which were made with a large central diamond and smaller accent diamonds or pearls. Later, in the Victorian period, colourful gemstones such as rubies, sapphires, and turquoises were used as the central stone and seed pearls and tiny round diamonds were used for creating the halo. Some of the aesthetic movements in the following centuries such as the Art Nouveau movement and the Art Deco movement experimented with the classic halo setting in creative ways.
The halo setting is not limited to rings nowadays. Designers use this aesthetically appealing technique to add an extra layer of sparkle to pendants, earrings, and other ornaments as well. Over the past few centuries, the classic single halo underwent several changes, giving way to double halos and multiple halos. Today, you can buy halo jewellery designs from many online jewellers and such stylishly crafted pieces abound in timeless beauty and eternal elegance.
