The marquise was first popularized in Paris during the latter part of the 18th Century. It is said that King Louis XV wished for a diamond that would resemble his mistress’s beautiful smile. It remains one of the most sought –after shapes for a solitaire diamond engagement ring.
In this lovely piece the single marquise-shaped diamond is set into a beautiful thick 18kt yellow gold band. Fabricated in Germany towards the end of the last century, this stunning ring dazzles.
