Description

DATE: Art Nouveau, c.1910

A stunning antique Diamond and Pearl "Toi et Moi" ring first retailed in Paris in the early 20th Century. Set with the most gorgeous pairing of stones: an antique cushion cut diamond and a natural pearl. The toi et moi style, literally you and me, represents the union of two souls, and has been a popular choice of engagement ring since Napoleon presented one to Josephine in 1796, shortly before they were married. This one's modelled in the Art Nouveau style, with sweeping crossover shoulders, and French import marks indicated that it was made in England before crossing the channel to the Parisian market.
