Legend holds that the marquise shape was created at the behest of Louis XIV. He wanted a diamond shaped to match the smile of the Marquise of Pompadour. And so, the king's cutters delivered a diamond that to-date gives the greatest illusion of any diamond shape known. Due to symmetry and the naked eye, the marquise diamond shape actually appears to be quite bigger than it is. Surround the stone with diamonds and the sheer size of the ring could cut a slice of birthday cake.

It's true, not everyone is rich. But also true, not everyone is poor. And for the very select few, they have money to spend on jewelry like this.
Nobody does @daniachicago. it's not worth 500 thousand
Who has this kind of money? For a ring?
