Pronounced “Mark-Keys”, Marquise cut diamond rings appear the largest of all cuts.  Due to the long nature of the Marquise shape, it is beloved for having a flattering, slenderising effect on the fingers when set in the traditional orientation of North-South.

A Marquise Cut diamond is known as “Navette”, meaning little boat in French due to its boat-like shape. Legend says that the Marquise cut first appeared in Paris circa 1745 and its fascinating history can be traced back to the height of the French monarchy. King Louis XV commissioned his court jeweller to create a diamond that resembled the smile of his beautiful mistress, the Marchioness Madame de Pompadour. A sleek and seductive design, the perfect Marquise Cut diamond should always be cut in a 2:1 aspect ratio, meaning it must be twice as long as it is wide to have the proper aesthetic effect.

If you are looking for the ultimate unique diamond shape for your engagement ring, the Marquise Cut is definitely one to consider. In its wealthy history, it was traditionally worn as a cocktail ring or right-hand ring rather than being set in engagement rings, but that has been changing. With 58 facets and a dramatic shape, the Marquise Cut delivers on drama and sparkle, making it a perfect contender for an engagement ring.

Furthermore, the Marquise Cut diamond appears bigger than any other shape. It has the biggest surface area, meaning that your carat weight will go a lot further than shapes that are deeper.
