What is a Marquise Diamond?

Marquise diamonds are cut in an elliptical shape (like a football shaped diamond) with two pointed ends. Their specific diamond shape has a large crown surface area which makes a diamond appear larger.

Also called the “eye-shaped” diamond, "little ship," and "little boat," these distinctive and precious stones are suited to elegant and outgoing people.

Preferred for their elongating effect on the ring finger, marquise-cut diamond rings are among the most sophisticated center stone choices for engagement rings out there.

A marquise diamond's beauty comes from its brilliance and shine and distinguished shape. A marquise diamond engagement ring is the way to wow your loved one with a proposal they will never forget.

Marquise-Shaped Diamonds - The 4 C’s

Cut — The shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, while the cut refers to how well the diamond’s features interact with light.

Because marquise diamonds are a “fancy” cut, they are not graded. Even so, when buying a marquise diamond, make sure that it has a decent amount of sparkle; while marquise diamonds won’t look as fiery inside as round-shaped diamonds, they will outshine an emerald-shaped stone.

A poorly cut marquise diamond will show what’s known as a bow tie effect within the diamond--a shadow that takes away from the sparkle. The bow tie effect is visible to the naked eye, and their size varies from diamond to diamond.

Clarity — Each marquise-shaped diamond may have flaws. They are graded on clarity in the same way all diamonds are. The diamond clarity scale ranges from I (included) to F (flawless). You will most likely only see clarity grades as low as SI (slightly included). ship cohesive look unique ability prongs.

Marquise diamonds nearly always have an inclusion; however, a well-cut stone will hide any flaws from the eye with a brilliant sparkle.

Color —While marquise diamonds tend to show their color, this is often preferred; because marquise diamonds are a traditional stone dating back to the 1700s, a bit of color in the stone can look more authentic.

Carat — Marquise-shaped diamonds have very large crown surface areas, making them appear larger than their actual carat size. Use this advantage to either purchase a diamond that appears bigger than its carat or purchase a lower carat weight with the same appearance as a higher carat stone.

However, considering that a lab grown diamond can save you 20-30% on the price, many purchasers decide to use the leftover budget to add some to the wow factor and increase the carat size.


How to Buy a Marquise-Cut Diamond

Length-to-Width Ratio - Marquise diamonds have a distinctive length-to-width ratio that can be modified to suit your loved one’s style.

A length-to-width ratio of 1.75-2.15 is considered the classic marquise-shaped diamond cut. Remember that (like a pear or oval diamond) longer marquise-shaped diamond rings can give your significant other’s fingers an elongated shape, while a shorter stone can look bolder.

Because the marquise shape already lengthens a person's fingers, it may make sense to choose a slightly shorter shape.

Symmetry - Marquise diamonds must have very high cut quality as their shape can reveal flaws in cut easily. The two points should be aligned and the two sides of the diamond should be symmetrical for visual appeal.

Lab Grown Marquise-Cut Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds and natural diamonds have identical chemical constructions and appearances. This means that when you compare marquise-shape diamonds of both kinds, you will look for the same qualities in cut, clarity, color, and carat.

You’ll also be able to make a decision about the length-to-width ratio you prefer. By choosing a lab grown diamond, you may be able to add an intricate band or carat that you might not have been able to afford otherwise. You also have the option of choosing a more ornate wedding band with the money you save on a lab grown diamond.
