Elegant Toi-et-moi ring with sapphire & pearl in platinum, around 1930

Toi-et-moi, You and I - this French term is used to describe rings that make two precious stones equal protagonists of the design. Even Napoleon adored Joséphine such a ring, but designs of this kind were popular until well into the 20th century. In the process, one designed them according to the respective jewelry fashion. This ring is an unusual example from the Art Deco period. As an asymmetrical showpiece, it presents a dark blue, faceted sapphire in cushion form and a pearl with a slight apricot hue. The gemstones are set vertically to the finger in fine platinum, which is additionally textured with mille handles and shadow gaps on the ring shoulders. The ring is in very good condition. We think that especially the unusual combination of gemstones is particularly beautifully chosen: quite different, peculiar and yet harmonious, yet presented as equals, the jewels are a beautiful allusion to the love relationship between two people.
