18k Yellow Gold and Platinum. A very rare find, this original Art Nouveau Moi et Toi diamond ring is completely unique and utterly romantic!
The rings graceful, sweeping design is set with two dazzling, bright white, and completely eye clean Old European cut diamonds. Cut by hand between 1890 and 1910, the diamonds have wide facets that create bold and vibrant sparkle. Artfully crafted in 18k yellow gold topped with platinum, the rings graceful swoops are accented with hand perfected fine milgrain and very rare rose cut diamonds for additional flashes of sparkle.
The effect is elegantly feminine and enchantingly dreamy. Represented by two equally sized centers, Moi et Toi rings traditionally symbolize the union between two people. This heartfelt tradition makes this ring an excellent choice for a meaningful engagement ring; however it would be equally lovely as a cocktail ring. The diamonds are all beautifully white, graded G-H for color.
Diamonds from this time period tend to show a hint of color, so it is rare to find bright white old cut diamonds such as these! Graded VS1-SI1 for clarity, the diamonds are completely eye clean. The very few inclusions in these diamonds are much too small to be seen with the naked eye. The two old European cut diamonds total 0.35ct while the rose cut diamonds total 0.05ct. All cut by hand, the diamonds are absolutely unique and full of old world charm.Exceptionally rare, old rose cut diamonds have larger diameters for their weights, so they have a much larger impact than their carat weight implies! The setting is made of solid 18k yellow gold topped with platinum. The ring measures 14.9mm across (north south) and 4.0mm from finger to top. Dazzling, sophisticated, and utterly romantic, this rare vintage ring is an excellent choice for a timeless engagement or right hand ring.
