Story

Although halo rings pique everyone's interest these days, the style is not new. In fact, it has been with us for hundreds years under various monikers including the cluster ring. Typically its definition is one large or several smaller gems with a surround of smaller stones. Some clusters resemble the bloom of a multi-petal flower cluster; others may look as though all the gems meld together and appear to be one very large gem.

In typical historic fashion, within this ring the gems are all set in silver over 10k yellow gold (with a replaced slightly later 14k yellow gold shank). Silver was the only white metal of choice up until about 1900 when platinum came into use. The main diamond is a 10 mm by 8 mm cushion cut weighing 1.9 carats (I-J color; SI2 clarity) yet gives the visual impression closer to a 2.0 carat plus diamond.

Candle-lit dinners or warm sunlight, all infuse the diamonds with a soft, shimmering brilliance. All diamonds are foiled underneath and set closed back for even more of that internal intensity so desired.

An expanded halo of twelve (12) rose cut diamonds (each 2 mm in diameter and .04 carats) adds a total of .48 carats (I-K color; SI2-3 clarity) and creates a bigger look overall. In all, the ring has an total diamond weight of 2.38 carats. Split shoulders appointed with a silver appliqué of a leaf and incised gold work on the shank accent the ring with a touch of pizazz.

Important Note: We do not recommend this ring as an engagement ring. Foiled jewelry should not be exposed to water for any extended period of time nor soaked in any other liquid. Please avoid steam and ultrasonic cleaning.
