This particular ring is known as a “toi et moi” ring has lives on the manifestation boards of many hopeful brides-to-be since the model and actress Emily Ratajkowski was proposed to with.

A “toi et moi” ring, translates from French to “you and me,” it’s a style of ring that features two stones set side by side, symbolising the union of two individuals and two becoming one.

This type of ring gained popularity in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, particularly during the Victorian era, and remains a timeless choice for engagement rings, anniversary rings, or simply as a meaningful gift between partners with such a beautiful meaning behind them.  

True to form, Sophie’s ring is timeless and elegant and now we just can’t wait to see her wedding dress!
