A marquise cut diamond engagement ring is perfect for an ultra-modern or vintage style engagement ring. A marquise-cut diamond has a tapered oval shape with pointed ends. Also called as the Navette diamond, the marquise cut diamond is shaped like a boat and is long with pointed ends. This impressive shape has a distinct appearance and is ideal for people looking for something out of the norm. The stunning shape of this diamond allows it to have around 56 facets, which is lesser than a round diamond, but enough to make it shine bright.
The marquise-shaped diamond is believed to have been commissioned by King Louis XIV of France to remind him of the perfect shaped mouth and smile of his true love, the Marquise de Pompadour. The diamond is an elongated shape with pointed ends and its distinctive, dramatic shape offers a unique setting for a striking engagement ring. The marquise cut diamond engagement rings will be a great choice if you are looking for something different.
If the idea of an antique design with retro touches is more your speed, a marquise-cut diamond is as gorgeous in yellow gold as it is in platinum. The brilliance and shape of this diamond are the two things that will set it apart from the others and make it hard to not notice it. Because of its unique elongated shape, the marquise cut diamonds appears larger to the eye as compared to a round diamond of the same carat weight. In addition to this, it makes the wearer’s finger look slender.
