    D4A57FBF-D894-4FCC-9532-E0CAD5721107.jpeg This is at a local shop in their consignment area. Retail $16K written on tag, consigned for $11,500 and they encouraged me to make an offer to the seller. ;-) 1.3 carats each, K color. I should have taken more pictures! The profile was really pretty. I could definitely see yellow from the side, but this ring was just so blingtastic. I loved it. Estimated total weight 3 carats! @Niel wanted you to see this—I know you’re a fan of Toi et Moi!

    God I do love a good moi et toi. Half of me wants to do that with my stone!

    Oh you should! I am obsessed with toi et moi especially with big fat stones. I’m sorely tempted to reset mine into one if I could find the right match. In the interim I’m having a rose cut moissy one made atm..

    I was back in the shop today I ask about restringing (glass) pearls and I had to get my baby back out for another photo shoot today. She was still in there, winking at me!

    Too many other items on the wish list right now— but if it’s still there in a couple of months, well...:twisted2:

    I hear you! The list runs deep, even if the wallet doesn't. Although, you are much better in showing restraint than me... I know I couldn't last a couple months. Maybe a couple weeks, if I'm lucky! :lol:

    DH and I have been talking about a Toi et Moi for our October anniversary. So we’re not quite ready to purchase yet, but will probably get to it around June or July. This ring is twice our budget, but if it’s still around and they’re willing to entertain offers, then we may have a conversation at that time. ;-)

    We let it pass, and when I went in to pick up some restrung pearls, it was gone! So someone is very happy right now! :)

    I bought a much smaller toi et moi recently and love it! I hope you find one that speaks to you and you get to take home.
