What Is a Toi et Moi Ring?

Toi et Moi rings are supremely romantic in significance.
A Toi et Moi engagement ring ('you and I' in French), is a ring set with two, equally-sized, precious stones side by side. The ring can symbolise the unity with your partner, and for that reason is often gifted on Valentine's Day, or for a wedding anniversary.

Toi e Moi  engagement rings were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Back in 1776 the former French commander, Napoleon Bonapart, gave his first fiancée, Joséphine de Beauharnais, a Toi et Moi ring with a diamond and a sapphire. In 2013, the ring went for around 730,000 Euros at auction, nearly 50x more than anticipated.

Whilst browsing our extensive collection of rings, you might ask how these rings differ from other engagement rings in our collection. The difference lies in the symbolic value of the message you convey in giving this ring. The difference with wedding rings is that those are mostly sold as a pair and are engraved. With that said, partners can each wear a relationship ring if they wish,   or even have a message engraved in the ring.

The Romantic Symbolism of a Relationship Ring

Besides an eternity ring, a Toi et Moi engagement ring scores highly on the romantic scale, for a number of reasons.

  • Firstly,because it is a ring. People who give each other rings are entering into a commitment and pledging something, even if that pledge isn't made official by means of an engagement or wedding.

  • Secondly, the close proximity of the two  precious stones speaks volumes. Individual stones, paired together, form a whole.

There is also  the symbolism of the precious stones.  A diamond represents purity, constancy and love. Sapphires represent truth and fidelity and stand for hope, serenity and peace, whereas rubies represent beauty, happiness and passion. 

Would you like to buy a diamond ring that symbolises your union with your partner at a glance? If so, choose a Toi et Moi ring with two diamonds, or with one diamond and one sapphire. Or, for greater personal effect you could opt for a tailor-made Toi et Moi ring, using both partners' birthstones.

When Is a Good Time to Buy a Toi et Moi Ring?

Toi et Moi rings are supremely romantic in significance.
Buying a relationship ring implies commitment. With its unique significance, a Toi et Moi engagement ring embodies just as much symbolism as a traditional engagement ring, just without the wedding plans, that's all. For example, your diamond ring is the ideal gift when you'd like to ask your partner to enter into a cohabitation agreement. As such you are binding with your partner, looking towards the future, without the wedding plans though.
Or, if one of you has to relocate for some considerable time, the relationship ring can strengthen your long-distance union and can symbolically underscore your bond. The Toi et Moi ring is also a fabulous present on other occasions too, such as on Valentine's Day or on a wedding anniversary.

Frequently asked Questions

The different designs in BAUNAT’s engagement ring selection

At BAUNAT, our engagement ring selection has something for everybody.

1. Solitaire ring


Solitaire rings are the most popular choice for diamond engagement rings — for good reason. By putting a single diamond at the centre of a ring, it will be the centre of attention.

The most common setting for a solitaire ring is the classic six-prong. This setting has six prongs, also called claws, which hold the diamond firmly in place. By holding the diamond like this instead of setting it into the band, it has more room, meaning increased brilliance.

This traditional setting is not your only option for engagement rings; there are other possibilities for solitaire rings and even completely different ring designs as well, such as a pave setting


2. Solitaire with side diamonds

When there are small diamonds set on the ring band of a solitaire ring, it’s called ‘Solitaire with side diamonds’. The small diamonds on the ring band accentuate the brilliance of the central diamond. It enhances the sparkle of the large diamond and makes it look even larger.


3. Eternity ring

With an eternity ring, a series of small diamonds cover the entire surface of a piece of jewellery. The diamonds are set closely together so that no metal is seen, and only the diamonds are visible. This is truly breathtaking as all you can see are rows of shining diamonds with no spaces between them.


4. Trilogy ring


A trilogy ring is a ring set with three diamonds and stands for ‘the past, present and future’.

If you choose three diamonds, the best option is to have one central larger diamond to attract all the attention and let it be assisted by two smaller diamonds. If you prefer some colour, you can also choose a coloured gemstone or coloured diamond as a central diamond.


5. Toi et Moi

‘Toi et Moi’ means ‘You and Me’ in French and refers to a ring that has two diamonds. This design represents the intertwining of two souls and is, therefore, a popular choice for engagement rings. The two stones can also represent two hearts eternally joined, which is proof of an ‘unbreakable’ couple.

The closeness of both stones and the fact they’re of the same shape and size suggest balance and equity.

This style can also be set with one coloured gemstone or coloured diamond, in case you or your loved one prefers a hint of colour in your/their jewellery.


6. Halo

A halo diamond ring is a ring with smaller diamonds encircling the centre stone. The term ‘halo’ is used because the centre stone looks like it has a halo. The main benefit of the halo design is that it makes the central gemstone or diamond look larger.

While halo ring settings are typically set with diamonds as the centre stone, this isn't always the case. The central diamond can also be changed by a blue sapphire, green emerald, red ruby or other gemstones.

The gemstone can have a round cut, cushion cut, pear cut, or other shapes.

What does trilogy mean?

A trilogy is a jewel with three stones. The central stone is often larger than the accompanying side stones. These three stones symbolize the past, present and future.

What does riviere design mean?

A riviere design is a design where diamonds are placed next to each other to create a long smooth line. Very often, all of the stones have the same size, but sometimes diamonds are used ranging from large to small. These rivière design jewels are timeless pieces which can be worn for any occasion.
