What could be more romantic and more unique than an eternity band comprised of diamonds originally conceived as a coded love letter? Far less common than the solitaire, the marquise cut with its long almond shape, plump center, and pointed ends has a daringly provocative back story. The marquise cut came into being in the 18th century during the Baroque period (1600-1750) as an ode to kissable lips. King Louis XV (1710-1774) of France commissioned a jeweler to create a completely unique diamond shape that compared to the lips of his mistress, Madame de Pompadour, or Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour. This Contemporary Marquise Diamond Eternity Band Wedding Ring, made in the 21st century, circa 2010s, and crafted in 18K yellow gold, features 14 marquise-shape yellow diamonds weighing an approximate total of 12.37 carats.

The marquise cut diamond, also called a navette which is French for “little boat,” is an elliptical shape with pointed ends. It has evolved over the last 300 years or so to have 58 facets, equal to the round brilliant-cut diamond which displays the most brilliance, fire, and scintillation of all diamond cuts. Due to their long and narrow shape, marquise diamonds can create the illusion of greater size. It is said that choosing a marquise means that you are quite stylish and larger than life. The angular silhouette of this dynamic ring, activated with dramatic zig zigs on top and bottom, is visually splendid like a crown. Each diamond is presented vertically, individually, warmed in yellow gold and accented with corner prongs on top and bottom. The inside of the ring further shows the expert craftsmanship of the setting which features a beautiful yellow gold accordion-like structure with repeating pointed oval cutouts. This openwork structure behind the stones lets light in to add brilliance and amplify the sparkle.

Today an eternity ring is a traditional anniversary gift signifying that the love expressed on the wedding day is everlasting and celebratory the time a couple has spent together in marriage. This ring is spectacular as a wedding band, a one year anniversary gift, or an expression of eternal love at any point on your path of love together. Like art of the Baroque period that finds its highest expression in what only senses can understand, this diamond cut is the pinnacle of sensuality.

Size US 6.5, cannot be resized unless with an insert to make the ring smaller. 14 marquise-shape yellow diamonds weighing approx. 12.37 carats total, each diamond is approximately 0.88 carats. Overall weight approx. 14.1 grams, made in 18k yellow gold. Appraisal available upon request. Circa 2010s.
