One of the romantic myths circulating in the history of jewelry is the origin of the "moi et toi" ring. It is said that in 1796 Napoléon Bonaparte bestowed upon Josephine an engagement ring with opposing gems.
The name literally translates from the French as "you and me". Sentimental in nature, this genre of ring symbolizes the melding of two individuals into one.
This 14k white gold crossover or bypass ring features two old European cut diamonds, of .30 carats each. Also six .02 carat single cut diamonds with a total of .42 carats (H-I color; VS2-SI1 clarity).
The large old European cuts embellish each end of an open ring and pass the other. A smooth unadorned shank follows.
