Wonderful 1960s Toi-et-Moi Ring with Diamond & Sapphire in White Gold
As if united in dance, we see a dark blue natural sapphire and a white brilliant-cut diamond in this solid white gold ring. The juxtaposition of the two protagonists of this ring identifies the design as a so-called "Toi-et-Moi" piece of jewellery. The genre of these "you-and-me" jewels are gifts of the most romantic nature and were mostly gifts of love in the past. Designs with two juxtaposed, similar elements, be it two precious stones or pearls, were already very popular around 1900: people loved to play with symbols. In the Art Nouveau concept, two lovers face each other here; recognisable as independent elements, yet firmly united by their feelings and symbolically united in one piece of jewellery. In this ring from the 1960s, the two partners, the brilliant and the sapphire, are set in high-carat white gold, giving the ring a fine and cool elegance. Nothing distracts from the two gemstones, the curved ring band holds them elegantly with with beautiful dynamism. The classic combination of blue and white here enhances the natural beauty of the gemstones extraordinarily. A perfectly crafted goldsmith's work, solidly processed and in very good condition, which refers to the long tradition of Toi-et-Moi jewellery.
