Toi et moi – from night tears to the ring that binds two souls

Toi et moi - from night tears to the ring that binds two souls

In 2010, Princess Kate’s engagement ring sparked the “sapphire effect”, making thousands of girls dream of a brilliant and noble sapphire marriage proposal. In 2022, Machine Gun Kelly “opened the bowl” again at the beginning of the year with a Toi et Moi ring for Megan Fox, “duplicating” women’s dreams of a design that represents both individuals.

Toi et moi – from night tears to the ring that binds two souls

In French, “Toi et Moi” is synonymous with “you and me” or vice versa. Featuring two stones that represent two entities meeting and becoming one, the “Toi et Moi” is perhaps the most personalized engagement ring in history. The two gems are contrasting, but they complement and highlight each other’s beauty. Just like boys and girls, personality is like a magnet with opposite signs, but it attracts the other half non-stop.

In 1796, when Napoleon Bonaparte was still a key general in the French revolution, he knelt at the feet of a widow six years older than him and had two children to propose. She was Joséphine de Beauharnais. It was then that the world witnessed two things. One is Napoleon’s intensity and determination in love, piercing the walls of prejudice about social distance, despite family objections and suspicion from strangers everywhere. Two is the introduction of the iconic Toi et Moi ring.

The defining credo of Napoleon Bonaparte and Joséphine de Beauharnais was the juxtaposition of a sapphire and an ancient diamond. The similar shape to the teardrop of the two stones is reminiscent of the somewhat arduous context of this love story. Even after the divorce and before his death, Joséphine was still the last name uttered and kept in Napoleon’s heart.

During the Victorian era, Toi et Moi rings often consisted of a ruby ​​and a diamond representing love, prosperity, passionate passion and endless devotion. In the Edwardian era, the usual combination was diamonds and pearls , symbolizing strength, purity and eternal love.

But today, no longer similar in size nor restrained in traditional cuts, Toi et Moi rings become more liberal and random through the contrast in any design details and all gemstones. They have become love witnesses for many royal couples, politicians and famous artists.

One of the earliest couples to promote this design, former US president John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie Kennedy are probably the two that always appear in any conversation about Toi et Moi. Under the golden hands of two designers Van Cleef & Arpels, a 2.84 carat emerald and a 2.88 carat diamond have been combined to form a one-of-a-kind ring.

Originally, the emerald and diamond were surrounded by baguette-shaped diamonds, but were later sent back to Van Cleef & Arpels by the lady to be replaced with marquise-shaped diamonds, providing a stunning beauty. more important to the former First Lady of the United States.

Toi et Moi is also popular with people in the Royal Family . Among them are Prince Henrik and Queen of Denmark Margrethe. Once again, the Toi et Moi ring bears the aura of two “giant” diamonds and “sits” firmly on a delicate gold ring arranged by Van Cleef & Arpels.

Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Emily Ratajkowski was proposed to with a ring accented with two white diamonds: a 2-carat princess cut and a 3-carat pear cut. They are side by side on two 18-carat gold rings arranged by the Alison Lou brand jewelers.

The novel contrast is probably the first impression when one looks at Ariana Grande’s ring. An oval-cut diamond of overwhelming size rests on her side with a vintage pearl, which is said to have been inspired by her grandfather’s heirloom.

On Instagram , the young businesswoman wrote: “Daddy got us matching rings”, showing off the ring’s intention not to propose, but as a gift from Travis. Scott gave it to mother and daughter. It is estimated that each diamond in Kylie’s hand is 4.5 carats and Stormi’s is 1.5 carats.

Designed by Stephen Webster, the love story between rapper Machine Gun Kelly and actress Megan Fox is fully expressed through the two stones on the Toi et Moi ring. They were chosen based on the birthstones of two people: Megan Fox’s emerald and Machine Gun Kelly’s diamond. “The teardrop-shaped cut that ‘condensed’ on two strips of thorns attracted to each other like two halves of a soul forming a complete heart is also our love,” – Machine Gun Kelly confided on Instagram.
