A Tale of Two OMCs - My Moi et Toi by DK

A few weeks ago I received my Moi et Toi ring by DK. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; Amy was wonderful to work with and the bench team did a fabulous job!
This ring ended up being a year + project. As this was to be a rhr I didn’t want a solitaire so I first started thinking about a 3 stone ring, changed my mind to a 5, then a cluster....I saw many beautiful options but none that were “it”. And then, I saw an antique OEC Moi et Toi on IG and that’s when the obsession began =)2.
But I wanted OMCs instead of OECs. Little did I know what a challenge it would be to find a matching pair. Finally, after months of searching I found my stones only to realize my inspirational ring, although beautiful, wasn’t “me”. So next came months of pondering the design. When I finally settled on the design the CAD & execution by the DK team ended up being the shortest part of the project:D!

The details:
1.79/I/SI1 OMC 7.46 x 6.97
1.76/J/VS2 OMC 7.48 x 7.18
I/VS graduated single cuts matched to the OMCs bead set in platinum

Glamour shot from DK followed by my photos:

This is just insanely beautiful. It has lovely balance and the setting is perfect for it. All that time you spent - looking for a great match - has paid off in spades!

And just to be clear...I would steal this from you if I could!! :Up_to_something:

Thanks for comments @kipari; although I’ve done a few custom projects this was a bit more challenging design wise than I anticipated.

Thanks so much @mrs-b for your generous comments. I admire all of your projects with DK, and your experiences (as well as other PSers) with DK were the reason I felt very comfortable chosing DK for the project and I’m so glad I did!

Oh my goodness. Gorgeous pair of diamonds and gorgeous and complementary setting!! :love::sun: What a lovely and unique piece!

Confession: Once upon a time I looked at Moi et Toi rings and I thought to myself “those stones would make fabulous earrings”... Nowadays? A few weeks ago I saw a pair of large antique pears on JbG and I thought “those would make a fab Moi et Toi” :love:

Tell us about finding the stones. I can certainly imagine that this was a nontrivial effort! How long did you search? Did you buy them together or match them separately?

Jaw-dropping. Absolutely stunning! What could be better than one huge OMC rock but TWO?!?!? The design is perfect - simple and delicate yet quite a statement with those lovely stones. And I know exactly what you mean about the difficulty in finding a matched pair - that search is not for the faint of heart! This ring looks so gorgeous on your hand!! Congratulations!

Thanks one and all for taking the time to post your gracious comments. I hope I didn’t miss someone...

@yssie, I searched for the stones for maybe 6 -8 months? Hard to recall exactly as my search morphed over time. I initially thought I could match individual stones but I came to realize the folly of that endeavor...I ended up looking for pairs and found these at auction. As @KristyDarling said, searching for pairs is not for the faint of heart, and buying at auction takes it to a whole other level!! To add to the challenge this pair was collet set, so I couldn’t see the girdles, get a true weight or accurate size. But, they had the shape and faceting I was looking for, so I took a chance and bid.
