Many styles of jewelry come and go thanks to evolving trends. However, one style that has been around for awhile and doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast is the halo look in rings, necklaces and earrings. This jewelry style, which includes one center stone with smaller stones surrounding it, is the most popular with rings, especially engagement rings. The style goes back to the 1920s, and has enjoyed quite the resurgence with brides-to-be and other fashionistas as of late. Here are a couple of ways you can incorporate this look into your everyday wardrobe.
There are a number of ladies who are rocking a sparkler with the halo look included. This effect goes with a variety of different stones and cuts. In fact, many opt for the halo look in order to personalize their ring and make it a little different from the others. It can also be incorporated into any stone and cut, which makes for quite the unique bauble. The center stone is either level or above the surrounding stones. This style has also been very popular among celebrities lately, as Jennifer Garner, Carrie Underwood and Gwyneth Paltrow all sport these sparklers.
There is another reason that people opt for this style ring for their engagement. The diamonds or cubic zirconia stones surrounding the center stone enhances the look of the ring, and makes it seem as though it is a little bigger.
Even though this style is most popular among engagement rings, cocktail rings also look fantastic in this style. In addition, this is a perfect way to incorporate different colors and metals into your jewelry box. For instance, you can have a green stone in the middle and have either diamond or yellow stones on the outer rim. These rings can come with rose gold, gold, platinum or sterling silver bands – in some cases, even mixed metals. This way, you can add different metals to your jewels. You also can dress up or down with these gemstone rings. They can easily give that pop of color to your work ensemble or a casual day of shopping with jeans and a nice sweater. When it comes to including these rings into your wardrobe, the possibilities are endless.
Blue is the hue
With each passing season, there is a new color highlighted in the fashion world. This time, it is blue. This can easily be incorporated into your jewelry with gemstone rings and necklaces in either aquamarine, blue topaz or sapphire. You can also incorporate this hue with your halo jewelry. Fashionistas can rock a blue topaz ring with either sapphires surrounding it or even pinks or purples. This will certainly help you stand out with amazing costume jewelry the next time you are out on the town.
Rock it with necklaces and earrings
Although the halo look is most found on rings, it does not mean it doesn't look incredible on necklaces, bracelets and earrings. In fact, this look on necklaces can make for bigger and better costume jewelry. A necklace with a bunch of different colors can truly make an outfit pop, so you may want to think about combining this look with your next outfit to make for a truly fashionable ensemble.
