Marquise-cut Rubies and Gold create the lovely Pompadour Necklace in the shape of the perfect smile
We are thrilled to have this beautiful necklace of rubies—and particularly in the romantic marquise cut named for the beautiful lips of the King’s mistress, Madame de Pompadour!
According to legend, the French King Louis XV commissioned his court jewellers to cut a gem to match his favourite lady’s smile. The story may be apocryphal, but the cut is indisputably beautiful, and the marquise cut and faceted rubies highlighted by yellow gold vermeil, make the necklace an instant eye-catcher.
The result is a fashionable ruby necklace which catches the light, glows and sparkles. It’s original and sophisticated, a stylish, easy to wear matinee length creating a versatile piece which will add just the right finishing touch to many different outfits, from boardroom to cocktails and more.
The Pompadour is the perfect mid-length necklace at 24in (61cm), the rubies are approximately 9mm by 16mm. It is finished with a 14ct yellow gold clasp and arrives in a smart case for presentation.
