Marquise-Shaped Diamonds

Marquise diamonds are cut in an elliptical shape with two pointed ends, like two teardrop diamonds joined in the middle. Also called the “eye-shaped” diamond, these distinctive stones are suited to elegant and outgoing women. Preferred for their elongating effect on the ring finger, marquise-shaped diamonds are one of the most sophisticated choices for engagement rings.

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, ensure your diamond 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.

ClarityClarity refers to the number of inclusions and blemishes in a stone. Each diamond will have a different amount of these flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the largest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). Marquise diamonds nearly always have an inclusion; however, a well-cut stone will hide any flaws from the eye with a brilliant sparkle.

Color — Color refers to the absence of color in a diamond. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least 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 carat size. Use this advantage to either purchase a diamond that appears bigger than its carat or purchases 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 of the wow factor with an increased carat size.

Buyers Tips for Marquise-Shaped Diamonds

Marquise diamonds have a distinctive shape, but it can be modified even more to suit your loved one’s style. While a length-to-width ratio of 1.75-2.15 is considered the classic marquise cut, the exact ratio can be altered. Remember that longer marquise shapes can make your significant other’s fingers look even longer than they already are, while a shorter stone can look bolder. Because the marquise shape already lengthens a woman’s fingers, it may make sense to choose a slightly shorter shape.


Lab-Grown Marquise-Shaped Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds and mined diamonds have identical chemical constructions and appearances. This means that when you compare marquise 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. However, because lab-grown marquise diamonds rely on a shorter supply chain, they offer the same qualities as mined diamonds at a 20-30% lower price—enabling you to add an intricate band or carat that you might not have been able to afford otherwise.
