Story

Take advantage of what Louis XV knew would please a woman…diamonds and flattery in any order. This platinum ring makes a grand entrance with its dramatic presence at a modest price point. A total estimated diamond weight of .77 carats brightens the day and evening with nine (9) old European and ten (10) single cut diamonds ensconced in the luxury of platinum.

A centered old European cut diamond of .25 carats is embraced by twelve (12) shaped synthetic sapphires channel set in that famous marquise format. East and west of the contrasting gems an additional old European cut diamond of .10 carats each flanks the main diamond. The three (3) old European cut largest diamonds have a color range of G-I and VS2-SI1 clarity. Dotted around the matrix sixteen (16) accent diamonds, a mix of old European and single cuts add shimmer to shine and glitter. Please note the lovely pierced platinum work of the under gallery of the engraved mounting.

Date: Circa 1925.

Historical Notes: Jeanne Antoinette Poisson aka Madame de Pompadour aka Marquise de Pompadour was introduced at the court of Louis XV and soon became his official mistress. Regarded as both beautiful and intelligent, Louis was so enamored with her that he commissioned a diamond to be created especially for her. Rumor had it that the gem with its elongated shape and pointed ends echoed her lips when pursed in a smile. Henceforth the navette cut configuration was known as the “marquise”.
