"One and one, that makes two, There's always a heart, And if you're lucky, it's two." One almost thinks this ring from around 1960 was inspired by these lines from Hildegard Kneef's famous chanson. In elegant juxtaposition, the ring face presents two large sparkling diamonds with a total weight of about 1.27 carats. Two swings, also set with three smaller diamonds each, hold the quality gemstones that are united for eternity as if in a moving "Pas de Deux". The ring is made of 14-karat yellow gold; the ring face and stone settings are topped with platinum. Its cool colour combined with the white diamonds gives the piece a festive look. The ring is a typical piece of German post-war jewellery. Even though its design goes back to models of the years around 1900, the cut of the stones is characteristic of jewellery of the 1950s and 1960s. The ring's masterful craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and romantic symbolism create a wonderful piece of jewellery that was probably designed as an engagement ring, and as such is still wonderfully appropriate today. To us found the well-preserved ring from Bonn.

The juxtaposition of the ring's two protagonists identifies the ring as a so-called "Toi-et-Moi" piece of jewelry. The genre of "you-and-me" jewelry are gifts of the most romantic nature and thus usually gifts of love. Designs with two juxtaposed, similar elements, be it two gemstones or pearls, were very popular around 1900: people loved to play with symbols. In the idea of Art Nouveau, man and woman face each other as lovers; recognizable as independent elements, yet firmly connected by their feeling and symbolically united in one piece of jewelry.
