The Halo style originated as an “illusion” setting, or a setting designed to create the illusion of a larger center diamond, at the turn of the century. At the turn of the new millennium, the Halo was reinvented as a way to balance a large gem in a delicate setting. Brilliant Earth finds both styles equally stunning!
