We’ve been using our blog to explain all available options so that you can be sure you’re purchasing the perfect ring. Bercotts have prepared a brief examination of halo engagement rings so Glasgow clients can shop with us in confidence.
A halo ring is less of a stone cut and more of a setting. It consists of a centre gemstone that is set within a collection of smaller diamonds or gemstones. You’ll find that these are usually referred to as round pavé or micro-pavé diamonds. According to a number of ring suppliers, they are currently the second most popular style of ring. It’s second only to the classic solitaire setting. They are ideal as they offer the security of a prong setting, but with additional grace and style. While the halos most commonly come in the shape of a circle, you do actually have a variety of unique options if you’re wanting some with that extra touch of originality. That is to say, you’re not limiting yourself to brilliant cut stones. The halo is usually dependent on the shape of stone you opt for so you could still have the emerald cut or marquis cut that you truly desire.
Despite the fact that they’ve become trendy as of late, halo engagement rings have been around for a fairly long time. In fact, you could say they are timeless. Their popularity rises and falls throughout the years, but they never really disappear. The preliminary design of halo engagement rings date back all the way to Georgian times. So, somewhere in the ballpark of 305 years ago. They gained notable popularity in the Victorian era, but with one particular design that took the look of a flower. The halo engagement rings in Glasgow are, for the most part, a lot less obnoxiously ostentatious than the designs of the past. The typical halo engagement ring of today takes from a style that was originated during the Art Deco era during the 1920s.
Halo engagement rings very much dip in and out of style, like with any fashion trend. This particular type of setting tends to reflect the changes in socio-economic trends. For example, they very much fell out of style during the Great Depression and during World War II. However, we truly think that halo engagement rings are a timeless option. Not only do they offer additional protection to your centre stone, but they look gorgeous. Clients also get a more expensive looking ring for a cheaper cost. A halo can make a centre stone look up to half a carat bigger. This is fantastic as you can buy a smaller size stone, but not lose any effect for having done so.
