A historic diamond shape with a regal vibe, the marquise cut diamond was supposedly first commissioned by King Louis XV of France, who was inspired by the smile of his mistress!
Its distinctive design - oval sides and pointed edges - elongates the finger and gives the illusion of a greater sized diamond. Elegant and bold, it’s perfect for someone who likes their jewellery to be individual and a little different from the norm.
Our buying tip for a marquise cut diamond: Like the pointed edge of a pear cut, the ends of the marquise cut diamond should be protected against chipping by a claw or bezel setting.
Every diamond engagement ring in our collection is available in white gold, yellow gold or platinum and every design is available in all carat sizes.
