Having a difficult time choosing between two different center stones for your engagement ring? Why not choose them both? The popular trend of setting two gorgeous stones on your ring has really picked up in popularity recently with fabulous rings shown all across social media by Megan Fox, Ariana Grande and others. Although this might seem to be a fairly new style it has actually been around for quite some time. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy revealed her iconic engagement ring featuring an emerald-cut emerald alongside an emerald-cut diamond 70 years ago.
Toi et Moi rings, also known as Two Stone rings, are often a pairing of two very different gemstones to reflect a variety of meanings such as birthstones of a couple, a cherished object from a family member plus the new stone from the love of their life, or two different stone cuts that heighten the dazzling look when placed side by side. Ariana Grande’s engagement ring features a pearl that passed from her grandfather to grandmother and then to Ariana, set alongside an oval cut diamond estimated to be between 5-7 carats.
Another example is the bold two stone engagement ring that Machine Gun Kelly presented to fiancee’ Megan Fox. He recently described his vision for the ring.“I know tradition is one ring, but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birthstone) and the diamond (my birthstone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.
And Toi et Moi rings aren’t just being used for engagement rings anymore. Many women are embellishing their right hand with a statement piece of their own design that commemorates major events, loves, milestones and more. Self-purchasing has really taken off and is the perfect way to tell the world that you’re taking charge and not waiting for a gift or someone else’s selection that may not be spot on with what you’d like to see on your hand.
