Emily Ratajkowski’s Moi et Toi Diamond Engagement Ring
Emily Ratajkowski’s Toi et Moi Diamond Engagement Ring
When Emily Ratajkowski became engaged to Sebastian Bear-Mcclard in 2018, her engagement ring made huge waves throughout the jewellery industry. A contemporary take on the classic “Toi et Moi” design, the ring features a perfect marriage of a square and pear shaped diamond. Emily collaborated with an American jewellery designer to create the piece, proving that alongside being a talented model, she has a discerning artistic eye for design.

Sebastian Bear-Mcclard originally proposed to Emily with a ring fashioned out of a restaurant bill secured with a paperclip after a romantic meal out in New York City. The two had been dating for only a few weeks, suggesting that this partnership was love at first sight! Featuring a 2ct princess cut diamond placed alongside a tilted 3ct pear shaped diamond, the two stones are set upon a 18ct yellow gold band. Emily’s engagement ring design is incredibly innovative, a cluster of flawless diamonds that suits her personality perfectly.
We estimate that Emily’s ring cost about £90,000.
Our design team decided to create their own version of Emily’s ring, a Toi et Moi princess cut and pear cut design but reinforced with a double band design. This artful engagement ring costs about £86,000.
This ring was inspired by Emily’s 2019 Met Gala Dundas dress which was based on an Egyptian wing pattern that wrapped around her body. Egyptian motif details are woven into the baskets of both diamond shapes as a homage to the original “Toi et Moi” theme. The basket motifs are complementary yet contrasting to accentuate the difference between the diamonds. The ring is crafted with platinum eagle claws to draw maximum focus to the stones themselves and then reveal the intricate basket details when viewed from the side. The rest of the ring is crafted in 18ct yellow gold, offset well with the contrasting colours along with the double band. The cross at the bottom of the band is the final ‘kiss’ element that ties the piece together.

Alongside our interpretation of her ring, we also created a more refined and delicate alternative version. A dainty cluster ring, this design features a marquise, round brilliant, and trillion cut diamond set together in an artful combination. This delicate ring costs about £1,620.
Inspired by Emily’s cluster engagement ring, this ring includes an additional third cut of diamond, and all of the diamonds are lab-grown. The band is constructed with three ridges to make the design more luxurious and similar to a multi band. The design remains two-toned to keep equal focus on the diamonds and the richness of the yellow gold. By adding three rather than two diamonds in this case, the engagement ring plays on the idea of; me, you, us: moi, toi, nous.
