Marquise Cut Garnet and Diamond Ring
About This Piece
What is the story behind the marquise cut? It’s told this cut was developed for King Louis XV of France. He wished to evoke the lips of his mistress, the Marquise de Pompadour. The elongated shape and brilliant faceting of the marquise cut creates a dramatic look.
In this case, with the deep red of the garnet, the shine of the 14k yellow gold and the cascade of sparkling diamonds on the band, this ring IS dramatic…and magnificent, if we do say so ourselves.
Celebrated as the birthstone for the month of January.
