Dainty Rainbow Moonstone Marquise Filigree Silver Engagement Ring
This beautiful Dainty Rainbow Moonstone Marquise Silver Engagement Ring has a beautiful Vintage-inspired look with a brilliant Marquise-cut Rainbow moonstone set in a protective filigree mounting. We are happy to create this beautiful engagement ring for you in a variety of ring sizes and finish options!
The dainty design of this Sterling Silver filigree engagement ring is both comfortable and easy to wear. This filigree ring holds a marquise-cut Rainbow Moonstone that measures 6 mm x 3 mm (approximately .25 carats) and is clear with few visible flaws and bright flashes in blue and blue-green. Because the low-set mounting protects the stone by encasing it in a filigree crown, this ring is perfect people who work with their hands. The ring tapers gracefully from 7 mm in width to a 1.5 mm (approximately .1 inch) wide band that has been carefully curved for wearing comfort.
Legend has it that the creation of the Marquise cut is credited to King Louis XV of France, who commissioned his court jeweler to create a diamond cut to reflect the beautiful shape of the mouth of his friend and long-time mistress, the Marquise Madame de Pompadour, in the 1750's. Because of their long, narrow shape, marquise cuts are often credited for making a finger appear longer and more slender. This historical cut, once worn by the French Court, has seen a resurgence in popularity in both new and vintage jewelry.
