You’ll Just Love Our New Halo Collection
With the Mazzucchelli's Halo Collection now available in-store, we asked our expert Diamond Buyers what they love about the Halo Setting:
“It perfectly compliments any diamond shape. Round Brilliant, Princess Cut, Cushion Cut – they all look beautiful in a Halo Setting.”
“Halo Settings can make the centre stone look up to ½ Carat larger – that makes them a great choice for any budget.”
“Oh it’s the sparkle, definitely the sparkle!”
A little Halo history…
Halo rings are fashionable now, but they’ve really been part of the jewellery world for decades. The Halo Setting dates back to the Georgian period where the centre stones were usually a coloured gemstone, like Sapphire or Ruby and were surrounded by Diamonds or Pearls, but these were mostly larger than what’s used today.
Modern Halo rings are reminiscent of the Art Deco classics, but with wonderful additions, such as the double Halo Setting. Our new Collection has a Halo to suit every style – visit us in-store today to view the entire Collection!
The time has finally come – our beautiful Halo Collection is now available in all Mazzucchelli's stores!
This dazzling style features a large round brilliant centre diamond, encircled by sparkling smaller diamonds. Our Halo Collection beautifully brings together classic style and elegant modern design; featuring traditional round settings as well as contemporary cushion halo settings. This stunning style has been beloved for centuries and provides unparalleled sparkle, sophistication and beauty.

The History of Birthstones
Birthstones are believed to date all the way back to the Breastplate of Aaron, which contained twelve gemstones, representing the twelve tribes of Israel.
The birthstones we recognise today were officially established in 1912, and there have only been a few changes since then. Most recently Tanzanite was added to December (keep an eye out for some great new Tanzanite pieces in-store soon!).
Our top birthstone tip?
Birthstones are not limited to birthday celebrations; use gemstones of the month to celebrate and commemorate a special occasion, such as an engagement, graduation or anniversary.
Spring is finally here and we’re loving everything about it! Blue skies, sunshine, and longer days that give you more time to shine. Hang those coats back up in your wardrobe and welcome in Spring with gorgeous Tahitian Pearls. Tahitian Pearls are formed in the black lipped oyster, giving them their extraordinary colour range; from black to dark purples and bright peacock greens and blues, Tahitian Pearls are the perfect accessory for Spring!
Celebrate with Sapphires!
One of our favourite gemstones, Sapphires are most often found in beautiful shades of blue. Associated with royalty and romance for centuries, the Sapphire was believed to protect wearers from envy and harm and attract heavenly blessings. Sapphires continue to be a cornerstone of modern-day jewellery and we think they look just gorgeous paired with dazzling diamonds and shimmery white gold in our new dress rings!

All About White Gold
Many of us love white gold, aka the ulra-chic silvery cousin of yellow gold, but what exactly is white gold? We’ve answered below some common questions we often hear from our Mazzucchelli’s customers.
Q. Is white gold naturally occurring?
A. No, white gold does not occur naturally, pure gold (24 carat) is always yellow.
Q. How is white gold made?
A. In jewellery, white gold is usually mixed with other metals to increase its strength and durability; to make white gold, yellow gold can be combined with palladium to create a cool off-white colour.
Q. What is rhodium plating?
A. Rhodium plating is often used to coat white gold (and sometimes silver) jewellery. It creates the shimmering white finish we can’t get enough of! Rhodium plating is not permanent and will require re-plating, depending on wear.
Take a look at some of our favourite white gold pieces from the Vera Wang LOVE Collection here.
Vera Wang LOVE
The Vera Wang LOVE Collection beautifully combines romantic old-world charm and sentimentality with the elegance and simplicity of modern design. We especially love the surprise Sapphires, ‘something blue’ for brides to be or a brilliant splash of colour for those who like to dazzle every day!
