The marquise stone is one of the most feminine cuts of stones. The marquise cut's origin dates back to the 18th century when King Louis XV of France (1710-1774) commissioned a jeweller to design a cut shape that resembled the lips of his mistress, Jean Antoinette Poisson, the Marchioness Madame de Pompadour. The long slender shape of this stone is beautiful and elegant, and one cannot help but feel aristocratic and regal when wearing it. The Heirloom Signature ring is a highlight of this collection. This ring features a perfectly balanced 12mm by 6mm marquise surrounded by a halo and band of 40 sparkling stones. Combine it with the Heirloom signature pendant and earrings to experience ultimate elegance. Crafted in 925 Sterling Silver and Rhodium plated, approximately 17.82mm long.
