Diamonds are cut in a variety of shapes. All diamond cuts sold for use in jewelry are one of ten diamond shapes. The shape of the large diamond center stone on your engagement ring can make a world of difference to its appearance. While you can choose from among cut options like round, oval, cushion, princess, pear, heart, and emerald, there is nothing quite as enchanting and enigmatic as a signature marquise cut engagement ring.
If you are not afraid of breaking rules, challenging stereotypes, and taking the road less traveled, the marquise cut is perfect for you. Its distinct elliptical shape, with pointy ends, maximizes the carat weight and makes your diamond appear much bigger than it really is. Several celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, have sported marquise cut engagement rings at some point in their lives.
The best thing about marquise cut rings is that you can choose to place the stone vertically (as is the convention) or horizontally (east-west setting) – both look extremely stylish and appealing. Available in both vintage as well as modern ring settings, marquise cut diamonds are elegant, unconventional, and dramatic in equal measure.
