Marquise-cut diamonds such those in this pair of earrings are among the earlier “fancy” shapes. The great Ancien Regime art collectors and museum patrons Charles and Jayne Wrightsman chose a large marquise-cut solitaire as her engagement ring, as legend traces the marquise-cut’s invention to one of the couple's favorite eras, the 18th century French court of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour.
