We weren't surprised to this impressive 'toi et moi' engagement ring bearing a 1980s London hallmark - a decade known for decadence!
The romantically named ring features two natural 1/2 carat zircons that have a superb brilliance and incredible sparkle. Indistinguishable from top quality diamonds zircons have an extraordinary fire, they display double refraction giving the illusion of even more facets than they possess.
The zircons are round brilliant cut, colorless and bright white with a very clean clarity. They lie side by side in an elegant unobtrusive 9ct gold setting with nipped shoulders and a slender band.
Crowns of 8 claws hold the stones high allowing the maximum amount of light to shine through adding to the sparkle. Zircons are thought to bring wealth and they are the birthstone for December.
An ancient natural gemstone - not to be confused with the modern lab created synthetic cubic zirconia - it is the oldest mineral known to man and has been prized for millennia because of its natural sparkle and beauty.
A glorious toi et moi engagement ring, absolutely stunning! Meaning “you and me” in French, toi et moi refers to a ring with two gems that sit side by side or close to each other, symbolising two souls becoming one.
