This is an absolutely exquisite vintage take on a beloved antique style, the toi et moi ring. French for you and me, the toi et moi is distinguished by a pair of stones - occasionally the same kind, often a mix of diamond and something else - one each representing your love and yourself. The style shot to popularity in the late 18th century, most famously when a diamond and sapphire version was presented by the future Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte, to his beloved Josephine.

This 1980s version centres on stunning marquise cut stones (another favourite that originated in France when, c. 1745, King Louis XV requested a diamond in the shape of his mistress' smile), flanked on either side by contrasting accent stones. The side stones, step cut carrés, are the perfect foil to the brilliant faceting of the marquises and the undulated curve of the band.

Striking, playful, and completely glamorous, this ring would make a dreamy alternative engagement ring, anniversary gift, or commitment to yourself.

Very good vintage condition with moderate wear commensurate with age.
