Diamond Engagement Ring with Emerald Halo

The Florence ring is an Art Deco diamond engagement ring with emerald halo that was converted from a brooch circa 1920! This gorgeous ring centers a GIA Certified antique pear cut diamond weighing 1.57 carats of H color, VS2 clarity. The diamond is bezel set in platinum and surrounded by a halo of calibre cut emeralds! The diamond and emeralds are lined with millegrain detail, and the gallery of the ring has scrolling, open metalwork all around. The platinum band is thin and lined with delicate fluting! The ring is size 6 and can be resized!

Why We Love It

Antique pears are some of the prettiest stones—and this one, with its excellent specs, is no exception! The emerald halo adds a desirable pop of color and the fine details make this ring gorgeous and unique! The contrast in color is mirrored in the contrast of size between the large center stone and the thin emerald halo. The band is thin as well, and wonderfully simple, accented with delicate fluting and adorned with the lovely open metalwork of the gallery. Such a vintage stunner!

Say Hello To Halos!

Perhaps the most interesting part of the Florence ring is how it reveals the development of the classic halo style. Although halos have been around since the 18th Century, they started to gain popularity in the Victorian era and then again in the Art Deco period of the 1920s.

The Florence ring fits well with Art Deco fashion, which was inspired by architecture, symmetry and bold, geometric shapes. However, there are still Victorian roots beneath the surface. The ornate open metalwork of the gallery is reminiscent of Victorian and Edwardian styles, which were more organic in design—originally, halos were crafted to look like flowers!

Benefits Of A Halo Engagement Ring

Still looking for a reason to fall in love with this ring? Here are just a few of the reasons this diamond engagement ring with emerald halo works so well:

  • Halos make the central stone look bigger
  • They work well with various diamond shapes
  • When made up of colored stones, halos can provide wonderful contrast
  • They also provide a contrast in faceting and texture!

Q: Do you do custom work?

A. Yes! We do indeed do custom work when we source the center stone and we work exclusively with antique diamonds! We are not currently creating settings for stones that we do not source. The custom process starts at $10,000.

Q: What is your return policy?

A. We are on a mission to pair people with their Dream Ring! If you are not happy with your purchase, we accept returns within 5 days of receiving the ring. Contact us and we will send you a return label to ship it back. Once we receive the ring in its original condition then we will issue a full refund. It may take a few days for the funds to show up in your account depending on your bank. Made-to-order rings are final sale. 

Q: What types of payments do you accept?

A. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, certified check, bank transfer, and Affirm. Important note if you are using a credit/debit card: Most banks impose a spending limit so you may have to contact them to have that changed for a purchase or to let them know that you are making a large purchase. We are also able to split payments over multiple cards! For this option, you can contact us and we can walk you through it!

Q: Will an "out of stock" item be restocked?

A: Unfortunately not! These are all one of a kind vintage and antique engagement rings so there is no other ring quite like it! Sometimes we can recreate a sold piece so Contact Us if there is a style that you can't get off your mind. For some of the vintage-inspired pieces, we can often recreate the ring with another antique diamond.

Q: Will you sell the setting without the center stone?

A: Unfortunately not! We do not sell only settings and we try to preserve the vintage integrity so we do not separate the diamonds from the setting. 

Q: What shipping do you offer?

A. We offer FREE overnight shipping Monday through Friday in the continental US. The package will come in a UPS or FedEx box and will not have our name on it in case it is a surprise!

Q: Do you offer payments plans?

A. We do offer layaway plans! Engagement rings can be a large purchase and we want you to be able to get the one that you want before someone else snatches up that one-of-a-kind piece! We offer up to 60-day installment plans and are happy to split payments over multiple cards if needed. Since layaway rings are taken off the market for extended periods of time, they are exchangeable but not returnable. Payments are non-returnable for payment plans. Contact us at to set up a plan that works for you!

Q: What countries do you ship to?

A. We ship to the United States, Canada, the UK, most European countries, Australia, as well as many other countries. Feel free to contact us to see if we ship to your country!
