Halo Engagement Rings She'll Die For

A diamond engagement ring is, arguably, the single most important item a woman will ever own. That being said, we live in a wonderful time where the options are endless and the "rules" no longer apply. You can never go wrong with a single, sparkling, solitaire diamond. However, if you want to punch that up a notch, there's only one option - surround that solitaire with a halo of diamonds. Is there any better way to commemorate your earthly angel than with a halo of shimmering diamonds? Let's take a look at some gorgeous options.

The Classic Solitaire, With Just the Right Pizazz

This is a gorgeous example of how the classic solitaire can really take it up a notch with just a little bit of help from its friends. Here we see that standalone giant surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds that really force the rest of the engagement rings in the world to take a bow. These round halo diamonds sit atop a shared prong setting and are well-positioned to make your lifelong partner always remember how treasured she is.

 

An Oval Diamond Embraced by Round Diamonds

Now this is a stunner. A gorgeous oval diamond really punches up the size, giving that special someone added sparkle and shine to gaze at. Not only is this centerpiece surrounded by a series of round diamonds, it also boasts a pave half-band. If your lady loves the vintage vibe, this is right up her alley. Get ready to make her day, and by extension, the rest of her life!

 

Give Her Halo Something Colorful to Adorn

Don't be afraid to bedazzle her in a halo surrounding one colorful sparkler. The yellow diamond has become increasingly popular as an engagement ring. Its brightness is unparalleled. Now, her hand will shine bright like the setting sun and dance amongst glistening round diamonds. This statement piece wouldn't do without an accompanying pave band, so expect those small sparklers to twinkle all the way around her finger. When the special day arrives, pair this ray of sun with one more diamond pave band, and she's heaven-bound in this halo.

 

One More Round Option

28842

If you're feeling like all these adornments are just not your lady's style, have no fear. The halo setting is still foolproof. This option may be just the ticket. It's another vintage throwback, and timeless classics will always stand strong. What’s interesting about this design is its flower essence. Doesn’t it look like a pretty little daisy? In this setting, a sturdy white gold or platinum band will prop up this masterpiece ever-so-elegantly. She’ll have a daily reminder of just who's propping her up each day, too.

 

A Halo for a Princess?

This ring says it all. She's the sun and the moon. Your princess and your angel. As if it wasn't stunning enough from straight on, take a look at the side-view of this masterpiece. The pave work all along the side will make her smile, no matter which way she's admiring her timeless piece from you.

Island Wedding Trends 2017

Pina colada in hand, coconut grove overhead; the island life isn’t half bad. And when it comes to the perfect wedding location? You can bet your bottom dollar that a dreamy island setup tops the list. If you’re lucky enough to have been invited to a far flung tropical location, you’re going to want to make the most of it.  Sun soaked for days and not a cloud in sight (fingers crossed), the beach is the arguably the best of the bridal options out there.

With all of that weather to deal with, though, just what can you do? Sure, you want to soak in all the sun but when you’re stuck out in the midday heat, you might begin to regret that floral cape and heavy flower crown.  Fear not; fashion is here. Island accessorizing is seriously hotting up its game and this year, it’s practically impossible to get it wrong. Ready to hit the beach? Your island is waiting!

 

Bring a little bling

29602B

Who said that too much is too much? When it comes to island bling, it pays to pile it high. Want to show off your tropical glow? Do it in gold. Accessorizing your look with a pair of vintage-inspired hoops is a simple yet effective way to get your style on point. Put these beauties on, tousle your hair a little and watch as the wedding guests flock to you. There’s a lot to be said about a little sparkle!

 

Windswept waves

ista1

Let’s face it; there’s no such thing as tamed tresses in the tropics. Letting your hair run wild can be the best way to embrace the island life, so don’t be afraid to really go for it with the texture. Your windswept waves will set you head and shoulders above the rest. And when it comes to the wedding photography? Nothing stands out from the crowd like a great head of hair.

 

Go in for the gold

 29436B

We’re not saying that gold is the only way to go, but when you want to show off your tan, is there really any other choice? Chances are that you’re going sleeveless for your island jaunt and if that’s the case, you’re going to want to layer on those accessories. Building your bangles is the perfect way to accessorize your look without going overboard. Not sure where to start? This delicate bracelet will put you off to a flying start and for the rest, the sky’s the limit!

 

Pared back and pretty

insta2

If you’re heading to an island wedding any time soon, you need to start thinking about the whole sand situation. We love a heel as much as the next girl, but when you’re dealing with beach life, there’s no telling what might happen. This year, it’s all about the flat. While the thought of sporting a flat to your next wedding might seem all wrong, the laid-back style is totally in keeping with island life. Opt for a pretty, accessorized version and you won’t even notice the difference. Outfit: Sorted.

 

Braid it back

insta3

With all of that tropical weather to deal with, there’s no telling what your hair situation will be like once the ceremony is over. It’s best not to risk a hair disaster. Opting for a messy braid will keep you well in track with this year’s island trends while protecting your tresses from any sudden weather events. These undone plaits are the ultimate in island chic, giving you an updo that’s about as laid back as a pina colada on the beach.

 

Island life is all about kicking back and letting yourself go natural, but there’s nothing wrong with helping mother nature on her way. Boost your look, keep it basic and let yourself glow. What else is a tropical destination for, after all?
