Get the halo look through your jewels

Dec 24, 2012

When it comes to fashion jewelry, there are styles and trends that come and go, but one that has been around for some time is halo jewelry. Most commonly found on rings - especially engagement rings - this halo look includes a set of diamonds or gemstones around a center stone. Not only does this make the ring or other form of jewelry simply beautiful, but it can also enhance the center stone. Here are a few ways you can incorporate the halo look into your jewelry box.

Engagement rings - make them look bigger
The halo look is the most prevalent among engagement rings. This popular trend as of late has stars rocking similar sparklers - with a diamond in the middle and smaller diamonds surrounding it. Celebrities like Jennifer Garner, Carrie Underwood and Gwyneth Paltrow all have baubles with this look added to them.

There are a few reasons why people opt for the halo or double halo look, and one of them is to make the center stone look bigger. This design enhances the center diamond while also giving it the appearance that the entire bauble is larger. The diamond itself can either be level or a little above the diamonds surrounding it. In addition, the halo look also gives the ring something extra, and makes it that much more unique. No matter what type of stone, it is possible to add the halo look, which can make for one-of-a-kind sparkers.

Rock it with blue
As the seasons come and go, there is always a color fashionistas continue to see in stores and on the runway. This winter, the main hue everyone is after is blue. There are a number of ways to rock this color into your wardrobe, but what better way than through your jewels? Sapphires and topaz has never looked more brilliant than with diamonds or cubic zirconia surrounding the stone.

Gemstone halo rings
Even though the halo look is the most popular with engagement rings, it doesn't mean that you can't rock it with your gemstone jewelry as well. In fact, the more color, the better this season, and the halo look makes this possible. The rings come in all shapes and sizes, and you can get a deep blue stone in the middle, and surround it with purple and blue stones. You can opt for a ring with a black stone in the middle and two halos around it. This really enhances the center stone without making it look too flashy. Those who do want to be noticed with their jewelry can rock a massive gemstone ring that will fit perfectly with that dress for New Year's Eve.

Necklaces, bracelets and earrings, too
You can also rock this look through your necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The halo look is just as gorgeous on a necklace as it is on a ring. Those who want the look on their other pieces of jewelry may want to go for the colored stones, as these hues look stunning on earrings and necklaces. Don't forget to mix it up - the more colors the better this winter season.

The best part is you do not have to spend a great deal to get these amazing jewels. In fact, by purchasing gemstone jewelry such as the Cushion-Emerald-Cut Aquamarine-Color Glass Crystal Accent Black Ruthenium-Plated Halo Cocktail Ring, you will not have to break the bank to look fabulous.
