I Put a Halo Engagement Ring On Her at North Pond, Windy City
“He asked me to be his partner in life and in love.“ ― Alex Deguzman
This non-cathedral halo-style engagement ring, is designed to sit flush with a wedding ring of the same width & height. Its unique cushion-shaped halo features alternating larger and smaller diamonds for a beautiful scalloped effect. This style can be set with the Round, Oval, Cushion, Asscher, Emerald, Radiant, Princess, Marquise, or Pear cut diamond of your choosing.
The halo engagement ring has exploded in popularity in recent years. Its origins can be traced as far back as the early Georgian era (1714-1837) in Europe, where round diamonds or pearls were slightly smaller than the center stone. Halo engagement rings saw an increase in popularity in the Victorian era (1837-1901), which often had colored gem center stones to imitate flowers. What we consider to be the classic halo setting of today originates in the Art Deco Era of the 1920s. The Art Deco movement included an emphasis on symmetry and geometric patterns. The concentric circles surrounding a center stone were perfect for Art Deco aesthetics.
Art Deco was a prominent style for jewelry in the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by geometric patterns and abstract designs using diamonds and gems in contrasting colors. The beauty of Art Deco jewelry still captivates us: engagement rings from the Art Deco era continue to speak to the hearts and sensibilities of modern-day brides who favor simple, geometric lines.
The Michelin Star-awarded North Pond restaurant, which is found in Lincoln Park at the edge of a pond overlooking Chicago’s stunning cityscape, takes the prize for the city’s most romantic setting for a proposal or a post-proposal dinner. This warm and welcoming environment sparkles as a result of features such as a rustic exposed brick wall, a blazing fireplace, and towering windows that gaze out over both the park and the pond that bears the same name.
