Classy Old School Dutch Marquise Moissanite Diamond Ring
The marquise cut’s origin dates back to the 18th century when King Louis XV of France (1710-1774) commissioned a jeweler to design a cut shape that resembled the lips of his mistress, Jean Antoinette Poisson, the Marchioness Madame de Pompadour. Over time, the marquise cut developed into the distinctive shape known today.
The name “marquise” refers to a hereditary rank above a count but below a duke and comes from the fact that courtiers wore marquise-cut diamonds in order to show off their rank. Marquise diamonds are also often referred to as “navette” diamonds, which means “little ship” in French, because of the marquise diamond’s boat-like shape.
Though the marquise cut began as a cut for diamonds, it is widely used with other gems like emeralds, rubies, and sapphires.
