All kinds of flashbacks are happening this Friday, so you’re in for quite a ride through history today. Remember the feature on the engagement ring Napoleon gave Josephine from a few months ago? You know, that diamond and sapphire stunner? (Click here to refresh your memory. Nobody said we couldn’t Flashback Friday ourselves!) Well, we’ve found a few lovely pieces that were obviously created with the same “toi et moi” style in mind as the original 18th century piece.
This platinum crossover ring (left), featuring a classic pear-shaped sapphire and diamond, is a truly modern and elegant take on the toi et moi style. With the main stones surrounded by smaller baguette cut diamonds, we’d envy anyone with this beauty snaked around their finger.
