The L'amour: Absolutely Outstanding Antique Two Diamond Filigree Ring Platinum
The L'amour: Outstanding Antique Toi Et Moi Two Diamond Filigree Ring. French for “you and me,” toi et moi rings are as romantic as they are beautiful. One of the romantic myths circulating in the history of jewelry is the origin of this style ring. It is said that in 1796, Napoléon Bonaparte bestowed upon Josephine an engagement ring with two gems, while Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis received a similar ring from John F. Kennedy for their marriage. Toi et moi rings have since then come to symbolize romance, passion and steadfast love. Whether you choose contrasting gemstones or two of the same, toi et moi rings symbolize the romantic union of two individuals coming together as one.
This particular ring prominently features two old mine cut diamonds measuring 2.30 carats and 2.48 carats. The center diamonds have an approximate Gemological Institute of America clarity grade of Vs1 and Vs2 and a color grade of J and K. Entangled in an architectural design are 0.80 carats of old mine cut diamonds that accentuate the intricate filigree details. Stunning hand engraving and precise milgrain embellish the floral motifs that encompass this ring. Crafted in robust platinum, this engagement ring is a finger size 4 ¼, yet can be adjusted to fit your exact finger size while still honoring the antique design.
While the style and design are truly exquisite, what is most fascinating about this ring is the symbolism it offers for couples of the past and of the present. Today, toi et moi rings are frequently worn by same sex couples to validate their incontestable love for one another. All elements of toi et moi rings work harmoniously to focus on the most important facets of an engagement – the couple. Wear this one-of-a-kind ring and celebrate love each and every day.
