    Who had a toi et moi ring?

Toi et moi fans would still fall head over heels for Napoleon's ring choice and of course Jackie Kennedy's headturning toi et moi sparkler. While toi et moi rings began with two stones of the same shape and size, the style has evolved to include every diamond shape and size under the sun.

    What wedding band goes with a toi et moi ring?

    Start by checking whether your engagement ring is 'stackable' or not. Stackable rings have a raised head which allows straight bands to nestle underneath and sit directly against your engagement ring. Non-stackable rings sit flush against the finger - for this style, you will want a tiara band or curved band to frame your engagement ring. Keep in mind, the taller/thicker stacks will affect the ring size you choose.
