The moi et toi style seems to have picked up quite a lot in the last season, and Rahaminov Diamonds is not about to let other bridal jewelers have all the fun. The brilliant jeweler has released its new 2 Stone campaign with Forevermark, and I am in complete awe of these rings. I mean, what’s better than one amazing cushion-cut diamond? Two. (Three and four would have also been acceptable answers, but let’s not get too crazy here, or eventually you’ve just got yourself a big ol’ wedding band.)
Rahaminov’s designs are sleek: The main stones glide past each other in bypassing fashion, leaving a trail of accent stones in their wake. I’m partial to the tidy band of round-cut diamonds, but the tapered baguette style is beautifully chunky and supports its cushion-cut diamonds very well. As a matter of fact, I really like both. There are no engagement ring rules anymore. I could just switch on and off in my dreams of owning each of these, right?
So the style has been around for a long, long time (think antique), but what’s to blame for the spike in seeing double? I’d be interested to hear if retailers are seeing a lot of brides searching for styles like this. I can think to blame only one superstar in particular for the trend: Gem Gossip‘s Danielle Miele, who revealed her engagement ring to be a delicate Victorian piece with two old Euro–cut diamonds back in 2013. Is the world finally just catching up?

Outside of Rahaminov for Forevermark’s 2 Stone campaign is this killer two-tone look, which I think would make just as beautiful a fashion ring as it would an engagement ring. This one has a little bit more of a spiralized look, with a double band that wraps around the finger and spurs two pear-shape diamonds—one white, one yellow.

Don’t you love this look? I really do. One of the coolest things about a shape like this is that you really don’t need to bother with a wedding band, though if a bride wanted one (you should definitely have at least a plain one for the ceremony!), she could wear it on its own or get something custom to fit flush. I wonder how it will compare in the near future with the likes of other bridal trends. Is it just me, or do we seem to be actively moving away from what is considered traditional? Millennials, am I right?
