Marquise Diamonds

Created under the commission of France's Louis XIV, the Sun King, to memorialize his bright smile, the marquise cut diamond is one of the most elegant diamonds available. It is a highly popular diamond for bridal sets. With its oval shape and tapered ends the marquise diamond is frequently used as a centre stone, running parallel to the finger, with smaller stones on either side. Due to its elongated shape the marquise cut diamond is often chosen by people with short fingers, as it creates the appearance of long, slender fingers. We suggest a length to width ratios of between 1.75 and 2.25.
