A ‘toi et moi’ ring c.1920; this original art deco piece holds two old European cut diamonds set slightly offset from one another in platinum bezel settings. Each diamond is approximately 0.30ct in weight, although they look even larger due to the settings, and are bright white and sparkly. Although we have graded the stones as SI2-I it is with hesitation as they are just so fiery and brilliant that you would never guess this was their clarity grade, the only inclusion giving up the game is a warmer inclusion in one stone, however this is so close to the culet that you barely even notice. The diamonds are in beautiful condition with only one small chip noted under magnification.
Surrounding the two stones is a delicate swirl of white gold that frames the two stones, making them look like yin and yang in their settings. Each wave of white gold is accented by three further eight cut diamonds, indicative of the 1920s.
These romantic rings make wonderful engagement rings, see our most recent blog on toi et moi rings for more of the history of these cherished, sentimental, pieces.

PLEASE ADD RING SIZING AS A PRODUCT TO YOUR CART
We offer a ring re-sizing service by our antique specialist for a small fee, starting at £40.
Most of our rings can be resized, but if they can’t we will stipulate this in the description.
As a rule we will only alter a ring by three UK sizes. If you would like to size a ring more than three UK sizes (either up or down) please contact us on a case by case basis and we will try and accommodate you as best as possible.
If you have any product altered or resized it can still be returned, however you will then be refunded the cost of the ring, minus alteration & postage costs.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
