Marquise Diamond Ring

Choose from our marquise cut engagement rings below or create your own unique design. All the designs in the gallery can be personalised to suit your individual style and preferences. Read more about marquise cut diamonds

Marquise cut diamonds are the perfect option for someone who loves the sparkle and fire of round brilliant cuts but wants a more unique and striking diamond shape.

The marquise cut is similar to the oval cut, with a symmetrical elongated shape that gives an illusion of length on the hand, when used in an engagement ring. The striking difference is that the top and bottom of the stone come to a sharp point, rather than a rounded shape. Marquise cut diamonds are very brilliant and fiery and reflect light beautifully. There is no standard length to width ratio for marquise cuts. They can be quite broad, with a wider mid-section and shorter length, or very long and lean.

Why buy a marquise diamond ring?

Developed for King Louis XIV, who commissioned a diamond in the shape of the lips of his lover, a marquise diamond is generally less expensive than other shapes, and they also appear larger to the eye due to their shallower depth.

Had my absolutely gorgeous engagement ring made through Larsen's. Alex was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process, even through lockdowns! We were shown many stones and options and never felt pressured to rush a decision or go above our budget. The final product is absolutely stunning and we would not hesitate going back to Larsen's in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? We’re happy to answer them! 

Are marquise diamond rings popular?

Marquise engagement rings are growing in popularity at an ever-increasing rate. This unique style is particularly popular in vintage and boho designs. Its elongated shape also creates a slimming effect on the hand and so can be a very flattering shape to wear.

Where did the marquise diamond get its name?

The name of this unique diamond cut dates back to its origin, when King Louis XV of France commissioned a diamond to be cut to resemble the lips of his mistress, Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour. Louis believed them to be the most perfect lips he had ever seen.

Are Marquise and Navette diamonds different shapes?

No, Marquise diamonds and Navette diamonds are the same shape. The term Navette is a nickname for the marquise diamond, and is a French term for "little ship".

Why do marquise diamond rings appear much larger than other diamond shapes?

The elongated shape of marquise diamonds means they appear larger than other diamonds of the same carat weight. This is due to the increased visible surface area and a shallower depth than other diamonds cuts. The result means more of the diamond material can be seen when viewed from above and thus creates the illusion of a larger overall diamond.

What is the bowtie effect?

The bowtie effect impacts several diamond shapes including oval, marquise and pear. The angle of the cut affects the way light is reflected through the middle of the diamond, resulting in a dark shadow in the shape of a bowtie. Selecting a well-cut diamond will minimise the impact of this effect.
