4 Marquise Diamond Rings from Celebrity Closet

What is a Marquise cut diamond?

A historic diamond shape that instantly makes its way into becoming the life of any jewelry! Yes, Marquise cut diamonds are one such magic. Popularly known as Navette cut diamond, which means "a little ship" in French; the diamond truly justifies its name. A Marquise Diamond features two pointed ends, one on top and one bottom, and it has a rounded center. They are elongated in shape and typically have 58 facets. 

History of Marquise cut diamond: 

The aesthetic Marquise Diamond Ring was created in 16th century France. It is believed that King Louis XV of France (1710-1774) commissioned a jeweler to design a cut that stood stark in resemblance to his mistress's lips. What began as a popular cut for diamonds is now popular for other gems such as Sapphire, Ruby, etc. 

The word marquise comes from a hereditary rank held by courtiers below the Duke. These courtiers sported the fashionable Marquise cut diamond to enhance their look. 

Things to know before you buy a Marquise shaped diamond ring

  • Symmetry is significant: When you buy a Marquise Diamond, make it a must to check if the two ends of a marquise diamond stand symmetrical to each other. The two ends can make or break the look of your ring. So, checking that is imperative. 
  • Chips and Snags, if any: It is essential for a diamond to be snag-free to look the absolute best. You won't love it if you wear the best diamonds, yet they ruin your outfit here and there by snagging. Having two pointed corners on both ends, the ring can also chip, if not saved by a good jewelry setting. 
  • Color is the key: When picking a Marquise Diamond, you might as well want to go for grades from I-J. It can have a tint of color in it but any day looks much better than a colorless diamond. As unusual as it sounds, colored diamonds look much better than colorless ones when we discuss the Marquise shape. 
  • Bow-tie effect: A blackish bow-like look at the center of Marquise Diamonds, makes it susceptible to the bow-tie effect. Any diamond that has an elliptical shape, has one such effect. Yet, it is possible to do away with this by having perfect brilliance in your diamond. The brilliance ensures hiding the impact of the bow-tie effect.
