The Marquise Diamond Cut is graceful and sophisticated, its elongate shape makes it a flattering choice.
Along with the Pear Shape the Marquise Cut has seen an increase in interest. This could be due to the unusual shape of the Marquise which results in a larger look when face-up than that of a Round Brilliant Cut with the same Carat weight.
The Facet arrangement of the Marquise creates a beautiful amount of fire and due to this inclusions are less visible in this cut, therefore accentuating lower Clarity diamonds.
When choosing a Marquise Cut Diamond the width of the diamond can vary greatly from slim to wide shapes, this comes down to personal taste. However symmetry is very important when deciding on the right Marquise Cut Diamond to ensure maximum brilliance.
A Marquise engagement ring works well in a Solitaire or Halo design and many appreciate that a Marquise will make their fingers appear longer and more slender.
