Still obsessing over Meghan Fox's dazzling emerald and diamond engagement ring? You aren't alone. Two stone engagement rings, also called Toi et Moi rings (that's French for you and me), are appearing on fingers everywhere. Get the deets on the symbolism and history behind this unexpected engagement ring setting—plus shop our favorite two stone engagement rings you can add to your cart right now, no matter your ring style.

What Is a Two Stone Engagement Ring?

While solitaire engagement rings are timeless, two stone engagement rings have a few major pros: they're one of the hottest engagement ring trends of 2022, they offer twice the sparkle and they're easily personalized with different stone shapes and colors. (Can't decide between say, a blue sapphire and a white diamond? Have your jeweler create a custom look with both!) Besides their megawatt shine and inherently unique feel, two stone engagement rings or Toi et Moi rings also have a wedding-worthy, sentimental meaning. The two central gemstones that sit side by side or close to each other symbolize two souls becoming one.

This setting may be all the rage in 2022, it actually has a long history dating back hundreds of years, as well as several famous fans. Napoleon Bonaparte put two stone engagement rings on the map when he proposed to Josephine de Beauharnais with a sapphire and diamond ring in 1796. In 1953 First Lady Jackie Kennedy debuted her iconic two-stone stunner, featuring an emerald-cut emerald and an emerald-cut diamond. In 2018, Sebastian Bear-Mcclard popped the question to Emily Ratajkowski with a princess-cut and pear-shaped diamond Toi et Moi ring. Ariana Grande's standout sparkler from now husband TK was composed of a pearl from her grandmother and a beautiful oval diamond. And of course, we've already covered Megan Fox's emerald and diamond ring that forms an abstract heart.
