Marquise-cut Diamonds & Marquise-cut Engagement Rings

Marquise Diamonds

Said to be named for a famous beauty at the French court in the 18th Century, the marquise cut is known by the French name navette, which means "little boat." Like the pear, marquise diamonds belong to the fancy shaped diamond group. Marquise diamonds also have the same cut as a round brilliant (58 facets) just with the stretched vertically with a sharp point at the bottom and the top (like a boat!).

Buying a Marquise-cut Engagement Ring?

Marquise-shaped engagement rings look best as a solitaire-styled engagement ring. The simplicity is a great look for her if she tends to be a minimalist. Marquise-shapes also look great with a halo around the center stone for a vintage feel.
