Yesterday I journied to one of London’s most iconic and luxurious destinations, Harrods, venturing in on the very last day of The Biennale exhibition. I had a one on one tour with a rouge lipped, immaculately dressed guide, who tested me on my gem knowledge as we discussed Dior’s pink sapphires, to an endearing tale of how the famous diamond marquise cut came to be…. during the eighteenth century in France, King Luis XV commissioned a diamond that would be cut to resemble the lips of his lover, Marquise de Pompadour. Her smile has been eternalised by a diamond cut for ever more. Quite lovely. Get me to the King!
