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 pendant a highlight of this collection. Featuring a perfectly balanced 10mm by 5mm marquise surround by a halo of 24 dazzling stones this pendant is feminine royalty. Combine it with the Heirloom signature ring and earrings to experience ultimate elegance. Chain 41cm + 5cm ext.
