Two-Stone Engagement Rings Remain a Celebrity Favorite

From Jackie Kennedy to Megan Fox, the stars love saying "yes" to double jewels.

It's been nearly 70 years since First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy debuted her iconic Van Cleef & Arpels two-stone engagement ring, featuring an emerald-cut emerald alongside an emerald-cut diamond. But even today, celebrities are still loving two-stone engagement rings, known as toi et moi (French for you and me). Double the stones equals double the love, right?

Kennedy's ring was unique and special in its own right (although, later, it was redesigned, above), but a handful of well-known names have also opted for two-jewel engagement rings since then, including Megan Fox, Ariana Grande, and Emily Ratajkowski.

After becoming a couple in early 2020, Fox and Machine Gun Kelly Fox got engaged in January 2022, with the musician popping the question with a stunning design he created with jeweler Stephen Webster. The gigantic engagement ring had sweet symbolism for the pair: the emerald represents Fox's birth month, May, while the diamond is for Kelly's birth month, April. The two stones are set in a separate thorn-like band which, per Kelly's close-up Instagram video of the ring, is meant to "draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love."

It's a true representation of these self-proclaimed "twin flames."

Emily Ratajkowski also designed her own statement-making, double-diamond engagement ring, which she received from Sebastian Bear-McClard. While the two have since parted ways, the piece — which included one pear-shaped stone next to a princess cut on a minimalistic gold band — was one for the history books. The model once told Vogue that she liked the idea of two stones instead of one, and loved the femininity of the pear contrasted with the architecture of the princess.

Grammy-winner Ariana Grande also received a duo-stone engagement ring from her husband Dalton Gomez. The gold design features a huge diagonally-set oval diamond nestled next to a pristine round pearl, which is believed to be an heirloom from Grande's beloved grandmother. The piece ring was custom-designed by Gomez, who worked with celebrity jeweler Jack Solow to craft it.

While it may seem like you have to have special connections for a toi et moi engagement ring, the good news is that's simply not true. Stephanie Gottlieb sells multiple, stunning versions that will really pop on your finger, while celeb-loved jewelry brand VRAI also has its own Mixed Cuff design that's sweet and simple.
