The origin of the halo setting can be traced as far back as the early Georgian era in Europe, which occurred during the years 1714-1837. During this era, round diamonds were used and they were only slightly smaller than the centre stone.
Diamond - the April birthstone - was first known to originate from India, where they were gathered from the country’s rivers and streams. It’s thought this stunning gem was traded as early as the fourth century BCE. Years later, exotic Indian merchandise - including diamonds - were brought to the medieval Venetian markets. By the 1400’s, diamonds were the preferred accessory of Europe’s royalty and elite. Soon the whole world caught on.
The classic diamond halo setting of today actually stems from the Art Deco Era in the 1920s, which popularised an emphasis on symmetry and geometric patterns.
