Origins of the Marquise cut diamond

 The origin of the Marquise cut dates back to King Louis XV of France (1710-1774) otherwise known as Luis the Beloved.  The first Marquise diamond was cut represent the outline  of the mouth of his mistress Madame de Pompadour.


The allure of Marquise engagement rings


Many buyers are drawn to Marquise engagement rings on account of the shape. The slender shaped enhances the finger like no other diamond. Most Marquise cuts of a specific carat weight vary in their proportions. For example, some diamonds have short and fat proportions. Other examples appear long and skinny. Better proportions tend to be 1 : 1.75 to 1 : 2 ratios in relation to width and length.

We gladly recommend styles based on your own requirements.

Some of our rings feature small claws midway on the diamond.  In contrast, 2 claw Marquise settings lack the same security. Having said this, many of our clients prefer the simplicity of 2 claw Marquise settings.
