Of all the fancy diamond shapes, the marquise diamond cut is the diamond of choice…it’s quite possibly the most regal and elegant of them all.
The diamonds elongated shape makes the fingers appear longer.
The unique structure of the marquise diamond makes it about twice as long as it is wide.
It has beautiful tapered points on each end.
The shape and structure of the diamond will make it appear larger than what it actually weighs in carats.
This is due to the large surface area of the stone.
You can actually a purchase a smaller marquise diamond engagement ring than you would in a different diamond shape.
It would appear significantly larger to the eye.
