I was discussing rings with a friend of mine who is very much from/active in the country western and horse showing/riding culture. We were discussing how much I love square halos for engagement rings. She said she was always sure she would have one because the “square halo” was a very very common motif in country western jewelry. She said she has tons of earrings, necklaces, etc. that have that square halo. It was the norm for horse shows and people involved in that sort of stuff. This was news to me; I always thought that square halos, and halos in general, were popular as “vintage” from the first half of the 20th century.
Found it interesting. Anybody else know this or have an thoughts?
(I still can’t wait until I get mine, country or not XD)

I’m a country gal and I think square halos look more vintage/glam. Guess everyone has a different opinion!

I don’t know much about country/western jewelry but I wouldn’t automatically associate a square halo with that kind of jewelry.
I have a squarish/cushion shape halo so you can decide for yourself if it looks vintage, glam or country. I just really like it 🙂

Huh. I always thought that square halos (really square) looked more modern than those with rounded edges.

Never heard of that. And I don’t really see it.

I’m from Texas and I’ve never heard of it or noticed that before! Now I’ll be looking everytime I go out. I have a square halo and I’ve never seen someone in real life with one. I think they look vintage, but they also look modern/blocky to me. Still deciding if I really like mine, to be honest!

@country chic: Beautiful ring 🙂
Yeah, I had never heard of it, but she swore that they were very popular in the riding world and country western subculture. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, just thought it was interesting.

I’m intrigued. I guess now that I think about it, it does smack of country/western a bit to me.
