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.
