The football-shaped marquise diamonds are a modified brilliant-cut. The name is derived from the Marquise of Pompadour, for whom King Louis XIV of France allegedly had a stone fashioned to resemble what he considered her perfectly shaped mouth. Because marquise diamonds are long and narrow, they can also create the illusion of greater size.
Carat for carat, the marquise diamond has one of the largest crown surface areas of any diamond shape, making it a good choice when trying to maximize the perceived size of a diamond. Like the oval diamond, the marquise cut diamond’s elongated shape can make the finger of the wearer appear longer and slimmer.
Here in Voltaire Diamonds we love marquise diamonds. This setting is a beautiful example of elegance and minimalism. It is also wed-fit to ensure the perfect fit with a wedding band when the time comes.
We can source diamonds to the clients preference, which is important when it comes to fancy cut diamonds such as the marquise.
