Time for some halo Tacori engagement rings to celebrate #TacoriTuesday! At this point you’ve heard me blather on about halo engagement rings for the better part of five years. It’s time for me to stop calling them a trend (actually that was probably a year or two ago, but I digress.) That “trend” is here to stay and firmly cemented in the hallows of engagement ring style history now.
And I covered some Tacori halo engagement rings back in March, but given the bonkers amount of Tacori goodies I must show you, we have more to explore today.
Tacori calls halos “blooms of diamonds”, which sounds lovely and they absolutely bear a striking resemblance to all my fave flowers, but the more popular term ruling over all of Pinterest remains “halo” so we’re calling them halos today, cool? Cool.
There’s no specific “halo” collection of Tacori engagement rings, the closest you get are Full Bloom & Blooming Beauties, but their defining characteristics come more from their accent diamonds’ setting style, not the halos themselves. And you’ll find plenty of halos in the other Tacori lines, so we have a great mix of everything from Classic Crescent to RoyalT today – let’s dig into some engagement ring eye candy!
First up, this incredibly unique sapphire and diamond engagement ring! I love when Tacori goes nuts with the sapphires. Not only is blue their signature color, I’m partial to this precious gemstone as a September baby. But regardless of your birthstone, regal sapphires add a dose of color to any engagement ring while still keeping things entirely classic. If it’s timeless enough for The Duchess, the sapphire engagement ring works for any ageless beauty. This ring draws inspo from Art Deco era details, with approximately. 28ctw of round brilliant diamonds and .41ctw of moon shaped sapphires set in your choice of 18 karat gold or platinum. You have your pick of all three gold alloys (white, yellow, or rose) but I’m partial to the look of the white metal!
This stunning masterpiece from the RoyalT collection scatters diamonds wherever you look. From the aerial perspective shown above, you see massive round brilliant accent diamonds graduated towards the focal point: an impossibly delicate diamond halo. The huge diamonds on the shanks are also bordered by those same stardust accent diamonds. This doesn’t even cover the diamonds embedded in the ring’s profile, carved with Tacori’s signature crescent design. All told, the accent diamonds add 2.43 carats of round brilliant Gorgeous, Very Sexiness (G color, VS clarity) to this ring. Because of its built-in bling, it accommodates center stones starting at 3 carats and up, in the shape of your choice. I vote round.
Cushion cut queens, did you think I’d leave you out? Never. Let’s do one more RoyalT setting just for you. Don’t let the round CZ shown here fool you, this beauty is begging for a cushion cut diamond. The shanks again hold those huge graduated round brilliant diamonds set so you barely see any metal at all. The center halo is a triple layer of small, bead set diamonds that creates a gorgeous textured backdrop for your dream diamond. The accent diamonds add 1.85ctw of Gorgeous, Very Sexy rocks to this platinum setting.
Let’s wrap things up with one more cushion beauty, shown here as a soft square halo for the round center stone. This setting hails from Tacori’s Classic Crescent line, the foundation of all the brand’s designs featuring the signature Crescent and scallop motif. You can catch a glimpse of that gorgeous detailing from the shot above, etched into the ring’s profile. But even the aerial perspective wows, with beautiful channel set round brilliant accent diamonds for its shanks and a rounded border of shared prong diamonds framing the diamond of your choice.
