Daring Art Deco Aquamarine Filigree Ring
Louis XV was so enraptured with his mistress Marquise de Pompadour that he had a diamond created especially for her. The myth is that the gem with its pointed ends and elongated shaped echoed the shape of her lips when she smiled. From that point on the navette cut was referred to as the “marquise”.
In pursuit of a kiss, this 10k gold ring highlights a faceted marquise cut aquamarine of an estimated 1.6 carats. The navette shaped stone is set within a 10k white gold mount with 10k rose gold flower forms set on yellow gold ribbon motifs which decorate the front of the white gold ring. Pierced and open work characterize the ethereal filigree mount.
