Romantic 14k White & Yellow Gold, Green Jadeite, Ruby & Diamond Toi Et Moi Ring
Romantic 14K White & Yellow Gold, Green Jadeite, Ruby & Diamond Toi Et Moi Ring. This is a wonderful example of the romantic "Toi et Moi" (you and me) form - a pair of green jadeite flowers with ruby centers, the pair divided by a sinuous, ribbon-like channel of seven single-cut diamonds in white gold illusion settings.
The jadeite disks are subtly dished around the single-cut rubies, and the combination of greens and ruby red are vivid against the yellow gold. A graceful channel of diamonds adds sparkle and light, and the gemstones are arranged in an arched presentation that is sweet, elegant and evocative. The overall composition is artful and well-balanced, and the ring is in excellent condition, tests positive for 14k gold, measures 7/8 x 1/2-inches at the face, a size 8.25 (sizable) and weighs 4.5 grams. The origins of this form can be traced back to at least the event of Napoleon Bonaparte presenting the future empress, Josephine, a toi et moi ring with a pear shaped diamond and pear shaped blue sapphire. They were also commonly used as engagements rings in the 19th and early 20th Centuries.
