There is perhaps no sexier shape a diamond can take than the marquis cut diamond. Commissioned by King Louis XV, the cut owes its faceted form to His Majesty’s desire for a diamond designed to resemble the lips of Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise of Pompadour and his favorite mistress.
When she was a child, a fortuneteller told Jeanne she would one day reign over the heart of a king, and her family did all they could to ensure prophecy became reality. Encouraged to develop her talents and education, Jeanne Antoinette amplified her beauty, wit, and position in society, and when she was 22 year old, Louis XV noticed her for the first time. Soon he was smitten, and Jeanne Antoinette did indeed reign over a king’s heart. Her influence shone beyond the throne and Jeanne Antoinette influenced an entire country. The love she inspired in Louis XV is immortalized forever in the form of every marquis diamond.
An everlasting kiss—that’s what the Marquis Solitaire Diamond Ring brings to mind.
