    Marquise Shape Ruby Gemstone

    Ruby 1 17ct Marquise Shape Gemstone - AGL C01509001878

    Marquise-shaped gems are elegant gems that are shaped like an ellipse. They are a modification of the brilliant-cut and may be worn horizontally or vertically. The origin of the marquise cut is actually believed to have originated in Paris in the 18th century, in the court of King Louis XV. Legend says that the Marquise cut was commissioned by King Louis XV to emulate the shape of his favourite mistress' lips.
