The thread above was my original thread from quite a few months back, regarding some diamond studs that were given to me, that were hubby’s moms. Hubby told me he wants me to wear them, no matter what that looks like. So the earrings have to go and you lovely ladies introduced me to the Toi Et Mot rings, which I LOVE!!!
But, I really want to incorporate his mama in the ring. She owned a florist for several years until she passed, and her birthstone is emerald. So I want to incorporate that somehow, floral in the metal or other stones and the emeralds maybe as leaves? I can add other stones, but each of these stones is a little over a carat, so I have to watch how big it gets and still incorporate both of these.
I’m really open, I am just looking for something that catches my eye and I go, “yes, that’s the design” or similar. I have a great jeweler, but until I have half a clue what I want, I can’t even walk in there, lol.
Anything ya’ll have? Seen? Like?
Here are my studs.

Such a nice sentiment about your MILs earrings being passed to you and you making an heirloom piece out of them.
Ive seen a couple of toi et moi style rings that I like and this is by far my favorite

maybe you could do a similar style with the rounds being surrounded by halo of your family’s birthstones. Either way I think setting your stones north and south might save you some finger space as opposed to east-west which could get crowded faster like you anticipated.
While this one is set E-W, My other absolute favorite floral design is from someone’s find on eBay over on pricescope
Maybe you could do a two stone with a birthstone halo
either way whatever you end up choosing will be beautiful, keep us updated 😊

This is my new floral inspired ring.
The earrings are beautiful. Why don’t you want to keep them that way?

I love moi and toi as well. I have two rings, one is a champagne diamond solitaire and the other a ruby ring I rarely wear that I think down the line I will convert to a moi and toi so I will keep an eye on your progress.
Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Emily Ratajkowski have ones that are ginormous. I love the one Empress Josephine received from Napoleon. Jackie Kennedy’s emerald and diamond one from JFK was amazing as well.
