A perfect balance between detail and negative space, the "Thea Halo" by Erika Winters is a nod to old world antiquity with a chic, modern day flair. At its center features a deep green Montana sapphire that has been framed within two pools of swooping matte gold, each delicately milgrained, and studded with clustered diamond accents at the compass points. A soft rounded shank and subtle brush finish completes this one-of-a-kind ring.

"Thea is also inspired by the sun itself and also the word “sun,” as it reflects my mother’s Korean name, “Pok Sun” and the golden color of her favorite flower, the sunflower. The four diamond-trio clusters also have significance, as the number 4 has myriad personal meanings for people—the four points of a compass, the four seasons, and four earthly elements, for example. And finally, the finish of the ring is very special to me, as it’s soft, but not quite matte. There is a very subtle shine to it that reminds me of my favorite time of day, dusk in the summer, when the sun has almost set but still shimmers in the distance. " -Erika Winters
