Marquise Shape In the 18th century, King Louis XV of France commissioned a diamond shape to resemble the lips of his mistress, Madame de Pompadour, known as the marquise or navette shape. The name comes from French court royalty who wore the diamonds to indicate their rank, which is between a count and a duke. The marquise is used for colored stones as well as diamonds, and is typically a brilliant cut with up to the full cut of 57 to 58 facets.

Baguette Cut The baguette-cut dates back to the art deco period of the 1930s. Cut in a long thin rectangle with 14 facets, this cut is named after its resemblance to the long thin French bread. Like the emerald cut, the baguette cut highlights the clarity of the stone.

Round Brilliant-Cut The Round Brilliant Cut dates back to 1919, when Marcel Tolkowsky calculated a formula for proportional diamond design to maximize fire, brilliance and wearability, published as “Diamond Design: A Study of the Reflection and Refraction of Light in Diamond.” A round brilliant diamond can also be called a full cut diamond if it features the cutting standard of 57 or 58 facets.

Art Deco The name is a shortening of the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industrials Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, used to represent the period from the 1920s to the 1930s. Art Deco jewelry style, in following with the rise of the machine age, emphasizes symmetry and geometry in design, typically with simple, repeated geometric patterns. In additional to natural pearl, the typical stone use in jewelry of this period is diamond, onyx, sapphire, emerald and coral, cut into geometric shapes reflecting advances in cutting. Cartier in France is a leading house of the period, and American houses including Tiffany and Company also produced exceptional pieces during this era.
