Characteristics of the Marquise Cut
As one of the oldest modified diamond cuts, the marquise cut was created - so the story goes - in the mid 1700’s when King Louise XIV requested a diamond shape that would complement the enticing smile of his mistress Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, the Marquise de Pompadour.
Also known as the ‘Navette Cut ‘ the marquise cut is an elongated oval cut which usually contains between 55 to 58 facets. The modified brilliant marquise is one of the shallowest fancy diamond cuts too.
Symmetrical marquise cut diamonds and gemstones will have a length that is twice the size of the width, but many types of length to width ratios are used to achieve marquise shapes that are shorter or longer than the standard shape.
Pros and Cons of Marquise Engagement Rings
One of the biggest pros to marquise diamond engagement rings is that this shape in particular looks so flattering on hands of all sizes. The elongated marquise shape is exceptionally complementary on slender hands with long fingers - but this engagement ring style can also have a slimming effect and will make shorter fingers look longer and slightly thinner.
Another benefit to this type of diamond cut is that because the cut is so shallow, most of the weight of the diamond is carried on top. This means that a smaller carat diamond will look larger in a marquise cut as opposed to other types of cuts with deep pavilions - like the round brilliant cut or the princess cut.
So for couples on a budget, marquise cut diamond rings will offer an impression of a larger carat diamond for a more affordable price.
Marquise diamonds have a pretty high amount of fire and brilliance too, which is further maximized in an ideal cut.
The marquise can also hide some color tints and very minor inclusions, and so there is a little more leeway in terms of diamond grades when choosing a diamond for your engagement ring.
Even though some inclusions and color tints can be masked with this fancy cut, it is best to stay within these diamond grades for marquise diamonds:
- Color: D to I on the GIA color scale
- Clarity: Flawless to VS2 on the GIA clarity scale
Marquise style engagement rings look simply stunning in almost any style too, from antique and vintage styles to classic simple engagement rings. And the marquise cut not only looks fabulous on diamonds - but it is quite delicious on colorful gemstones too. Just a few gemstones perfect for engagement rings which look ravishing in the marquise cut include sapphires, emeralds, rubies, aquamarines, tourmalines and blue topaz stones.
And the cons?
The biggest con to the marquise cut is a type of visual impression known as the ‘bow tie effect.’ All marquise diamond rings will have some type of bow tie effect - which is also seen in almost every type of fancy diamond shape.
The bow tie is a shadow, in the shape of a bow tie, located in the middle of the diamond (it usually only appears if you are looking straight down at the diamond). The shadow occurs when light escapes out of the bottom of the diamond instead of being reflected back to the viewer.
But, an ideal to excellent diamond cut will dramatically minimize the bow tie effect - while a poor cut can result in a pretty large and quite noticeable bow tie shadow.
Best Setting for Marquise Diamond Rings and Gemstone Rings
The absolutely best setting for marquise cut diamonds and gemstones is a 6-prong setting - one prong at the top, one at the bottom and two prongs on each side.
Another setting which can be used on the marquise shape is a bezel setting which will wrap around the entire stone - but this setting can reduce the overall fire and brilliance of diamonds because it blocks a bit of light.
Any other type of setting may leave the pointed ends of a marquise cut gemstone or diamond vulnerable to chipping or breaking. Although for very small carat marquise diamonds of less than half a carat, a 4-prong setting may provide enough security for the diamonds.

Shopping Tips for Marquise Engagement Rings
Wherever you decide to shop for your marquise wedding ring, keep these tips in mind to ensure you find a stellar ring with a quality cut diamond.
Stick with rings made with marquise diamonds that have been certified by one of the top diamond certification laboratories in the world: the GIA, AGS, EGL or IGI.
Remember the diamond grade parameters listed above, as going below those parameters will result in a diamond that may show color tints or inclusions.
Look for ideal cut marquise diamonds and highly rated cuts on marquise gemstones to ensure that the engagement ring will have a maximum amount of brilliance and fire while minimizing any type of bow tie effect.
Most diamond laboratories do not issue a cut grade on marquise diamonds - instead the cut is assessed separately, often by the retailer. This is another reason why it is important to go with retailers or jewelers with an excellent reputation and that specialize in marquise diamond rings. To make sure your diamond will not have a noticeable bow tie effect, it is essential that the diamond is analyzed and issued a cut grade by a competent professional.
The ideal length to width ratio for a marquise diamond, or gemstone, is 1.75 up to about 2.15. As the length to width ratio goes below 1.75 the marquise shape will become shorter and chubbier - and as it goes over 2.15 the shape will become longer and thinner.
It's all a matter of personal preference, but if you are looking for a classic marquise shape the 1.75 to 2.15 length to width ratio on the stone is best.

33 Best Marquise Engagement Rings for the Glamorous Bride
The marquise engagement ring isn't exactly known to be the most cutting edge. While marquise cuts were an extremely popular choice in the 1980s, the oblong, angular shape has lagged behind more popular resurgences of oval- and pear-shaped diamonds, feeling a bit antiquated in comparison. But as with other trends from the '80s back in the spotlight, marquise settings are experiencing a resurgence from ultra-modern settings to fresh designs with vintage appeal. The cut has also earned the stamp of approval from celebrities like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Victoria Beckham. Both have sported this antique-esque engagement ring look.
What Is a Marquise Cut?
A marquise-cut diamond or gemstone has a tapered oval shape with pointed ends. It's best identified by the long and narrow shape it gives to the stone.
Just because a marquise diamond ring is a little “old school” that doesn't mean it can't look entirely modern. In fact, many jewelry designers are putting a so-now twist on the ring shape with sleek, minimal designs and modern settings like east-west stones, bezel settings, and double-band silhouettes. Another way designers are making marquise diamond-ring settings feel fresh is with rose gold, enamel detailing, open-ring designs, or setting them slightly off-kilter—these savvy design tactics are totally unique ways of giving the classic shape an of-the-moment feel.
If the idea of an antique design with retro touches is more your speed, a marquise-cut diamond is as gorgeous in yellow gold as it is in platinum. Skip the east-west settings in favor of traditional north-south-set jewels and aim for slimmer shapes that have more of an old-fashioned feel (wider marquise stones definitely appear more modern). For more of an art deco aesthetic, choose white gold or platinum and consider accents like a thick halo, pavé band, or side stones to set off the center sparkler. In yellow gold, a hammered or granule band will look perfectly vintage-inspired.

8 Ways to Make Your Engagement Ring Look Bigger
Some people want a subtle engagement ring, while others want their engagement ring to look as glamorous and sizable as possible. If you fall into the latter category, we’re here to help with some handy tips on how you can make your engagement ring look bigger— without spending more for an enormous center stone.
In this post we’ll share 8 ways to make your engagement ring look bigger. We’ll include tips on initial choices you can make that will make a new engagement ring look more substantial, as well as some tips on how you can make your existing engagement ring look bigger.
1. Prioritize Cut
If you’re looking for a diamond for your engagement ring and you want your diamond to look as big as possible, don’t overlook cut grade. People often assume that the only thing that will make a diamond look larger is going up in carat weight. But that’s far from true. Many factors determine how large a diamond will look, including how well it was cut.
So how does the cut of a diamond change how big it looks? When a diamond has excellent brilliance (meaning, sparkle), it looks larger to the eye. And for a diamond to have maximum brilliance, it has to have great cut. To ensure your diamond has excellent brilliance, we recommend selecting a diamond with a cut grade of Very Good or Excellent.
Cut grade is so important for how large a diamond looks that a poor cut grade can actually make a large diamond look considerably smaller. So know that while a higher carat weight will lead to a diamond that’s technically larger, a very low cut grade can negate all that pricy extra carat weight.
2. Choose Your Diamond Shape Wisely
Another thing that can change how large a diamond looks is its shape. Diamonds can be cut into many different shapes, such as round, princess, or oval. But each diamond shape has its mass distributed differently. Some diamond shapes have more mass on their table (the top of the diamond), which makes them look much larger per carat.
Wondering which diamond shapes look the largest per carat? The four shapes that look the largest per carat are (in order of which looks the largest): marquise, pear, oval, and emerald diamonds. Among these shapes, oval diamonds are a top choice among those who want a classic-style engagement ring, yet want to maximize the size of their engagement ring’s center diamond. Oval cut diamonds look quite a bit larger than round diamonds per carat, yet they have a similar traditional look.
3. Avoid Certain Diamond Shapes
Just as some diamond shapes look larger per carat, others look smaller per carat. If you want the largest-looking diamond you can fit into your budget, you may want to avoid asscher cut and princess diamonds. Both of these shapes hide much of their weight below their table, simple due to how they’re cut.
Round diamonds are another shape you may want to avoid if you’re trying to get a larger-looking diamond while maximizing your budget. Round diamonds look smaller per carat than marquise, pear, oval, and emerald diamonds. Then, they also tend to be much more expensive. Round diamonds are by far the most expensive diamond shape, partially due to demand (round is the most popular diamond shape) and partially due to the fact that there is more raw diamond waste during the round diamond cutting process.
4. Consider Going Lower in Color and Clarity
Unlike diamond cut, diamond color and diamond clarity don’t have much of an impact on how large a diamond looks. So if size is your main priority, know that you can maximize your center stone budget by going a bit lower in diamond color and clarity. Being flexible with your color and clarity grades frees up room in your budget for a diamond that is higher in carat weight, yet still has a Very Good or Excellent cut.
5. Shine Bright With a Halo
Halo engagement ring settings are an excellent option if you want your engagement ring to look as glamorous and sizable as possible. In a halo setting, your center stone is surrounded by a shimmering ring of smaller accent diamonds. This brilliant halo optically extends the size of your center diamond, making it look much larger. The extra shimmer provided by the diamonds in a halo setting adds to this effect.
If you’re shopping for an engagement ring for the first time, halo settings are a great way to add drama and impact to your engagement ring. But they’re also a great option if you’re looking to upgrade your old engagement ring. You can switch out your current engagement ring’s setting for a halo setting and get a much larger-looking ring for a fraction of the cost of upgrading your existing center diamond.
6. Go Slim With Your Setting
Another way to use your setting to make your center diamond look larger is to go with a very slim, delicate setting. If you select a setting with a slim band and slim prongs, your center diamond will look larger in comparison. On the other hand, if you choose a wide band with bulky prongs, your diamond will look smaller. So if you want your center stone to look as large as possible, always select a slim, delicate setting.
As with our last tip, you can use this trick on a new engagement ring or your current one. If your current engagement ring has a wide, bulky setting that is overpowering your diamond, you can easily (and inexpensively) switch it out for a slim setting to make your center diamond look much larger.
7. Choose a Bright White Setting
Some precious metals can make your engagement ring look bigger than others. Namely, platinum and white gold— but especially 18k white gold. A shiny white metal will reflect your engagement ring’s center diamond like a mirror might, making it look larger. 18k white gold is particularly good at reflection, as it’s plated in rhodium, which is extraordinarily shiny. As an added bonus, 18k white gold is not only more reflective than platinum, but less expensive, which can help you put more of your budget toward a larger center diamond.
8. Keep Your Ring Clean
Our last tip is perhaps the easiest one to follow on this list. If you want your engagement ring to look as large as possible, year after year, always keep it clean. As we mentioned throughout this article, the more sparkly your engagement ring is, the larger it will look. Over time, diamonds and precious metals accumulate oil and dirt, which dulls their sparkle. So to keep your engagement ring shining, clean it regularly.
Wondering how often you should clean your engagement ring? We generally recommend getting your ring professionally cleaned every six months. Then, in between professional cleanings, simply clean your ring at home using warm water, dish soap, and a soft toothbrush whenever you think it’s starting to look a bit dim.
