The story: the marquise, better known in the form of a ring, is a classic ring that owes its name to the Marquise de Pompadour, whose smile inspired Louis XIV the shape of this ring that he had made in her honor. The name now designates an elongated or oval stone, haloed with precious stones, most often diamonds.
