Antique "Moi et Toi" Ring, Circa 1910 Deep Green Tourmaline
This early 1900s ring is a colorful example of what is referred to as a “Moi et Toi” ring. A romantic sentiment that translates to “me and you”. The stones are tourmaline in a unique shade of deep yellow-green and are set with gothic crown like detailing below a series of delicate prongs. The shoulders have a knife-edge contour and the gold is pierced in a decorative pattern giving a visual lightness to the ring. Inside the openings, years of natural patina have oxidized the 14k gold to a warm rainbow-like effect which many antique collectors will appreciate yet can be polished to reveal bright yellow gold if that is your preference. Currently a size 7 and sizable upon request.
