The Marquise shape has to be one of my favourite shapes to use in my jewellery designs, I love the elegance and sophistication.
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 Divine Collection
It looks so modern and I love the history behind this shape as I have said before, jewellery has such a heritage and has been adorned for centuries.
This is my Divine Collection, take a look at this and my other pieces of Handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery.
Have fun and take care
