What Is a Toi et Moi Ring?

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

These rings were popular engagement rings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Back in 1776 the former French commander, Napoleon Bonapart, gave his first, six years his senior, 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 yourself where the difference lies with the diamond rings that can be found in the engagement ring collection. The USP 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. You can, of course, both wear a relationship ring, or even have a message engraved in the ring.

The Romantic Symbolism of a Relationship Ring

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

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

  • Secondly, the close proximity of the two  precious stones  speaks volumes. Two individual stones that together form a whole.


And then there is the  symbolism of the precious stones  themselves.  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.  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.
