You and Me, us two
Antique Toi-et-Moi ring with pearl & old cut diamond, around 1910
This ring from around 1910 fascinates with the harmonious interplay of its precious materials: a shimmering pearl and a 0.45 ct old-cut diamond have been combined. This creates a play of light of white reflections that attracts attention and yet appears delicate and elegant at the same time. The juxtaposition of the two elements, the pearl and the brilliant-cut diamond, identifies the ring as a so-called "Toi-et-Moi" piece of jewellery. These "you-and-me" jewelry pieces are gifts of a romantic nature. They have been very popular since the early 20th century, because people loved to play with symbols. In the imagination of the time, two lovers face each other here: Recognizable as independent elements, yet firmly connected by their feeling and symbolically united in one piece of jewelry. The dynamically curved ring band is made of high-carat gold with a particularly warm shimmer. The materials used, the cut of the diamond and the shape of the ring allow us to date it to around 1910. It is beautifully preserved and a wonderful piece of jewellery that would make an excellent gift of love.
