The Toi Et Moi design (French for ‘you and me’) is considered one of the most romantic ring styles of all time. It showcases two gems that symbolize the togetherness and intimacy between two souls. The gems are chosen for their ability to both contrast and complement each other, bound together by a precious metal without losing their individuality. The setting was considered important as the closeness of the gemstones symbolizes balance and equality.
During the Victorian era, Toi Et Moi rings often included diamonds, as we can see in this pristine example, boasting .25ctw of VSI diamonds set in all-original prongs.
