Marquise Diamond Engagement Rings

The marquise cut has a strong presence–its elongated shape with pointed ends demands to be the centre of attention.

Why should I choose a Marquise diamond engagement ring?

Steeped in historical romance, the Marquise shape, sometimes referred to as the navette shape diamond, dates back to 18th century France. King Louis XV ordered royal jewellers to cut diamonds to resemble the lips of his love, Marquise de Pompado.

Since then, Marquise diamond engagement rings have only continued to grow in popularity. Its unique presence commands attention and its elongated is known to flatter the wearer by making the finger appear longer and slimmer.

 

What should I look out for?

Marquise diamonds can exhibit something called a ‘bow-tie effect’ which occurs when light doesn’t bounce into the middle of the diamond because of the way the diamond is cut.

This appears as a bow-tie shape darkness visible at the diamond’s centre. While most agree that this is part of a Marquise diamond’s beauty, a severe effect is undesirable. All of our diamonds are hand-inspected to ensure they do not possess a strongly visible bow-tie effect.

A versatile diamond shape, Marquise diamonds can be set vertically, horizontally, or even as accent side stones. Stars such as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Portia de Rossi both wear Marquise diamond engagement rings in a modern east-west setting.

So if you’re looking for large presence on the finger, look no further than the Marquise diamond. This shape has a larger spread on the finger than many others of equal carat weight and is a totally unique choice–it’s basically a win-win!
