This two stone style of ring is called a "toi et moi" ring, meaning, "You and Me" in French. These were common engagement rings during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, symbolizing two souls becoming one. The ring that is believed to have started the trend was the gorgeous sapphire and diamond engagement ring Napoleon gave to Josephine in 1776. Quite a heritage!
This charming “Too et Moi” ring dates to the Edwardian era, c.1910, and comes with a gemological report stating that the 1.63 carat sapphire is natural without treatment. The European cut diamond is 1.10 carat. The stones are mounted in an 18 karat white and yellow gold setting, accented with tiny rose cut diamonds.
