Halo jewelry consists of a center stone such as a diamond or a color gemstone surrounded by diamonds.
“This is really in right now,” explained Lorraine Tunca, owner of Lorraine Fine Jewelry in Liberty Lake. “Halo jewelry can be as simple as you want or as fancy. Halo jewelry is sleek and elegant yet modern and sassy.”
Tunca said Lorraine Fine Jewelry delivers one-of-a-kind jewelry — truly every masterpiece is uniquely hand-crafted by skilled artisans.
Why is it popular?
Halo-styled jewelry is very versatile, suiting a variety of occasions from everyday life to a formal affair. The most popular halo jewelry now is a color gemstone surrounded by diamonds. The different colored gemstones evoke different feelings and emotions, and make each ring unique. Lorraine Fine Jewelry features a large variety of halo jewelry as well as loose stones to customize jewelry of all kinds.
The diamonds encircling the center stone really makes the center stone pop. That’s because when light hits the small circular diamonds the diamonds forward that light back to the center stone. Halo-styled jewelry traces all the way back to the Georgian Era, which lasted from 1714 to 1837.
The team at Lorraine Fine Jewelry specializes in jewelry of all kinds, including customized pieces they design in-house. They also do repair, appraisals and watch battery replacements.
