In the 18th century, King Louis XV of France hired a jeweler to design a gem shape that resembled the lips of his mistress, Jean Antoinette Poisson, and the resulting elliptical gemstone shape became known as the marquise cut. Now we have taken that historical jewel shape and incorporated it into our Marquis Diamond Acrylic award. This royalty inspired award stands 8.75″ x 7.75″ and weighs over 2 pounds. Two black acrylic prongs hold a large marquise cut acrylic diamond in place and give our talented graphic artists ample space to engrave designs, emblems, or logos onto the vertical facet. Up to 8 lines of text will also fit on the award. All engraving comes free of charge! When you present our Marquis Diamond Acrylic awards (item # KT43338) to recipients, they will feel as if the crown jewels have just been bestowed on them. Give one today and see!
