— INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1979 —
Beauty mogul Kylie Jenner revealed to her 279 million Instagram followers on Tuesday the matching “Toi et Moi” diamond rings gifted to her and three-year-old daughter, Stormi, by rapper boyfriend Travis Scott.
“Daddy got us matching rings,” the 24-year-old wrote. The pic shows the mommy-daughter duo touching hands while wearing their new rings, which feature a pear-cut diamond nestled next to an emerald-cut diamond in a bypass setting. She punctuated the post with two emojis: a grey heart and a lightning cloud.
A design concept originally conceived by Napoleon in 1796, “Toi et Moi” is a bypass ring set with two unlike stones of similar size. Symbolically, they represent two souls becoming one. The ring that Napoleon presented to Josephine on the occasion of their marriage included two pear-shaped stones, one sapphire and one diamond. (The French phrase “toi et moi” means “you and me” in English.)
We expect that many fashion-forward jewelry lovers are going to be influenced by the Kylie/Stormi fashion statement. Kylie Jenner has more Instagram followers than anybody in the world, except for soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, who claims 362 million.
Jewelry-industry experts estimated that the diamonds in Kylie’s ring weigh about 5 or 6 carats apiece and are valued at $325,000. Stormi’s petite version is set with diamonds weighing approximately 1.5 carats each and carry a price tag of about $120,000.
Kylie did not reveal whether the gifts celebrated a particular occasion or milestone, but we do know that the reality star announced in early September that she is expecting her second child with the 29-year-old rapper and that Stormi is excited to become a big sister.
