Halo jewelry has been popular for a very long. Originally gaining popularity in the Victorian era, What we consider a traditional halo setting really took off in the Art Deco age of the 1920s and never looked back. There are a lot of reasons to love a good halo, from making your center stone look larger, to the natural flower look that you get when mixing stone colors. Regardless of why you want a halo setting, we love making them.
Radiant Cut Halo Ring
Here is a 2.47ct Radiant Cut center set in our latest halo design. This particular ring was made in 18k x-1 white gold which does not need rhodium plating as the material is white all the way through. This piece was designed using our new countersketch studio software.
This custom halo pendant was created around the customer’s .57ct round brilliant diamond from her first engagement ring. The couple had the old ring laying around in a drawer for years because they upgraded her original ring. This piece was designed as a gift for their daughter who will soon be graduating college, and what a special gift it will be. With the added milgrain and side detail work, this is a simple, yet stunning design in 18k white gold.
This 4 carat oval cut diamond is a real knockout. Set in a platinum halo design, we created this for a man who wanted to propose with a ring that, ‘would leave her speechless’, and it did just that.
We were so pleased to be a part of such a wonderful project that brought so much happiness to the recipient.
Make your special woman feel how much you truly love her, ask one of our artists how.

The stones sourced for this piece were cut and faceted to the highest quality standards to achieve maximum brilliance. The eye-catching sparkle of this piece is absolutely breathtaking to see in person at our Elkhart, Indiana showroom.
Oval diamonds are one of my favorite shapes, as they tend to look larger than other shapes of similar carat weight. When people think of diamond size, we envision the top surface of a round diamond. If you replaced that round diamond with an oval diamond that’s the same carat weight, the top surface would usually appear to be larger because an oval diamond often has a greater surface area than a round diamond of the same weight.
As an example, an average 1 carat oval diamond has a 10% larger surface on average, than 1 carat round diamond. Because oval diamonds are elongated, they can give the illusion of slightly longer and more slender fingers. We find they are perfect for someone who likes the sparkle of a round diamond, but wants something more unique.
