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 earrings are a highlight of this collection. Each earring features a perfectly balanced 10mm by 5mm marquise surrounded by a halo of 22 dazzling stones. The leaver back hoop features 14 stones to produce a set of earrings that are feminine royalty. Combine it with the Heirloom signature pendant and ring to experience ultimate elegance. Crafted in 925 Sterling Silver and Rhodium plated, approximately 34.85mm drop.
