One of the most striking shapes of all, the peculiar Marquise cut diamond courts a dramatic story to the origins of this brilliant cut. The name “marquise” goes after the very beautiful Marquise de Pompadour. It is said that King Louise XIV commissioned his court jeweler to create a diamond cut so enticing that would reflect the beautiful shape of the mouth of his beloved mistress. The tapered corners and rounded middle of this spectacular cut is an exact depiction of a shape of lips and says a lot about their illustrious love. This modified brilliant cut is also known as “Navette Cut”. One of the best reasons to buy marquise engagement rings is simply that it flatters your finger and makes fingers look gracefully slender and longer. It is particularly complimentary on slighter hands with long fingers. With the right setting the elongated tapered edges tend to mask some inclusions or flaws.
