According to legend, the marquise shape diamond was created for King Louis XV of France who wanted a diamond cut designed specifically to remind him of his mistresses’ lips. The Marquise de Pompadour, more commonly known as Madame de Pompadour, had the most beautifully shaped mouth he’d ever seen and he wanted it immortalised in diamond. The elegant marquise cut was born and the elongated curved shape with pointed ends would become an enduring symbol of love and romance.
