8 Amazing Antique Halo Engagement Rings

Celeste Perron

Halo engagement rings have been sought after for the past several years, but this popular design is by no means new.

Vintage halo rings featuring halos of diamonds or other gemstones encircling a center gem were designed at least as early as the Victorian era and were popular in the Art Deco and Retro eras as well. Halo engagement rings highlight the center gemstone by surrounding it in dazzling sparkle, and they have a beautiful symmetry that many people are drawn to.  If you love vintage engagement rings and are a fan of halo designs then you’ll adore these eight amazing antique rings:

The Tomika Ring
