toi et moi

Susan Ewington JewelleryComment

"Toi et moi", meaning "you and me" in French, refers to an antique style of engagement ring where two large stones are featured prominently in the design.  I've long considered the balance of two a significant design aesthetic of mine, however I usually combine very different shapes or sizes so I could never really call it a true 'toi et moi'... until this one.

Featuring a freeform cut Australian parti sapphire, and a much more uncommon stone known as Andalusite, which originates from Andalucia in Spain where it was first discovered.  Combined, they are so rich and earthy in their tones, which suited this Spanish guapa to a tee, and was perfect to symbolise her marriage to her Australian man.  Set in 18ct white and yellow golds.
