Engagement ring trends: Toi et Moi
Toi et Moi rings have recently returned as a trend in the celebrity world. First brought into the public eye in 1953, John F. Kennedy proposed to his beloved Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, bringing this classic style back into the public eye. Jackie Kennedy’s stunning Emerald and Diamond toi et moi ring, designed by Van Cleef & Arpels, exuded elegance and class while beginning a trend that would last for many years to come.
Meaning you and me in English, these beautiful rings represent two soulmates coming together as one. Traditionally comprising two different gemstones of the same size and cut, Emily Ratajkowksi brought this classic style into the twenty first century in 2018 when she showcased her beautiful ring with two different fancy cut diamonds – A stunning 2 carat princess cut alongside a magnificent 3ct pear cut diamond. Celebrities such as Arianna Grande, Kylie Jenner and Meghan Fox have all put their own twist on this stunning design and we can see this trend growing more popular as the year unfolds!
The beauty of the Toi et Moi ring comes in the fact that you can design it however you please – mixing diamonds and coloured gemstones, combining natural and lab diamonds along with different choices in cuts and sizes are some of the many options available to you when creating your perfect, one-of-a-kind ring. These stunning rings are not readily available in jewellers across Ireland and the trend has not picked up as quickly here, meaning by choosing an elegant ring such as this you are guaranteed to be one of the first!
