HOME / DIAMONDS / MARQUISE
Out of all the fancy shaped diamonds, the marquise diamond is the diamond of choice for royalty and is considered the most elegant of them all. The unique structure of the diamond makes it almost twice as long as it is wide, with beautiful tapered edges on each end. Its long shape will make it appear larger than its actual weight due to the large surface area of the stone. It is important to keep in mind that the proportions of the marquise diamond significantly affect its brilliance.
Because of the unusual and long shape, many people prefer to set marquise diamonds in simple solitaire rings to avoid the risk of taking away from their unique and natural beauty. Another preference is stetting two pear shapes on either side of the marquise diamond. Since both shapes have similar bodies, they complement each other flawlessly.
The marquise shape is a very unique diamond that will be sure to stand out beyond other stones.
Just like the oval, to ensure that the marquise looks brilliant you must make sure its shape and proportions are no less than perfect otherwise the diamond will lack brilliance.
