THE MARQUISE CUT ENGAGEMENT RING

by Enya Quinn March 03, 2021

An elegant and flattering shape, the marquise cut is a popular choice for engagement rings and has been for centuries. Let’s delve a little deeper into the characteristics of this alluring cut. 


History of The Marquise Cut

Viewed from above the Marquise Cut diamond resembles a little boat which is where some believe the shape came from but it was actually influenced by the shape of a pair of lips. In the 18th century, King Louis XV of France was captivated by the lips of his official chief mistress, Marquise de Pompadour and requested a diamond to be cut in the shape of her smile. Throughout the years this cut grew to be what it is today.

Why choose The Marquise Cut?

The Marquise Cut is a variation of the round brilliant cut but is elongated, stretching into an oval shape with pointed ends. It has 56 facets and packs a brilliant sparkle when cut well.

  • It’s elongated shape is super flattering and makes the finger appear more slender.
  • The Marquise Cut also has a larger surface area than the round brilliant, meaning you’re getting a diamond that looks bigger but without the bigger price tag!

The two pointed ends of a Marquise Cut diamond are the most vulnerable. Choose a setting that protects them from chipping or damage with either claws covering each point, holding the diamond securely in place or a halo setting that protects the entire diamond.
