It is time again to put a beautiful diamond shape in the spotlight. This time, it’s all about the marquise cut diamond –– this female form also deserves some attention. When buying an engagement ring, most men think very traditionally and usually choose a brilliant or princess cut engagement ring. However, many women like the elegant lines of a marquise ever since this diamond shape emerged during the French King Louis XV’s reign in the 18th century. The marquise cut’s sharp edges are also beautiful in combination with other diamonds. Let us take you into the world of the marquise cut diamond.

    

The marquise cut diamond: shape

In the 18th century, King Louis XV had a diamond designed that resembled his mistress’s lips, Madame de Pompadour. This is how the marquise cut diamond occurred. Over the years, this shape has been refined to the marquise we know today, with two pointed ends. This design made this diamond one of the most feminine and graceful forms. In addition, the long and narrow shape of the marquise makes the fingers look slimmer. Something to keep in mind!

Buying an engagement ring with a beautiful marquise

A marquise can be set beautifully in any diamond ring, but we also have our favorites. For men planning to buy an engagement ring, we recommend choosing a solitaire ring and replace the traditional brilliant with a beautiful marquise cut diamond. This way you get an original ring that also exudes a playful and feminine radiance.

Therefore, we advise you to choose at least a 1.50-carat to achieve the most beautiful effect. If you want to add some extra sparkle or make the marquise diamond look bigger, we can add a halo of small diamonds around it. This additional circle of diamonds does not take away the elegant character of the marquise cut diamonds. On the contrary, a halo is a highlight around the ring of your beloved.
If you plan to buy an engagement ring set with a marquise or other diamond shape, then you’ve come to the right place. Take a look at our extensive collection. If you are interested in a particular model, or if you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
