When she was nine years old, Jeanne Antoinette Poisson was told by a clairvoyant she would someday reign over the heart of a king, and when she was twenty-two, she made her fortune come true. Flouting conventions at the time, she crossed King Louis XV’s path while he hunted on a neighboring estate. The king was smitten. Within a year, she was officially the king’s mistress and residing within Versailles. History mostly remembers Jeanne Antoinette Poisson by her title: The Marquise de Pompadour. And it is from King Louis XV’s wish for a diamond cut to resemble her lips that the three sensational diamonds at the center of this ravishing ring take their name.
Glittering with a brilliance fit for the Marquise herself, the Magnificent Art Deco Colombian Emerald and Marquise Diamond Ring is a dazzling dance of delectable gemstones set in shimmering hand crafted platinum. In true Art Deco style, fifty phenomenal calibré cut Colombian emeralds enchant as they embrace forty-seven spectacular sparkling diamonds in a glamorous display sure to fascinate all fortunate enough to behold their beauty. In companionship with the two marquise side diamonds, the fabulous marquise at the heart of this dramatic ring centers a trinity of radiance which scintillates in any light. Expertly fashioned during an era of decadence and daring, this extraordinary ring was created some 180 years too late for the Marquise de Pompadour to enjoy it, but it is certain to make you feel like royalty whenever you slip it on.
