Marquise Cut Diamonds

Marquise Cut Diamonds have a boat like shaped girdle with 57 facets and they are brilliant cut. The Marquise Cut takes its name from a legend relating to the Marquise of Pompadour. According to the legend, the Sun King desired a stone to be polished into the shape of the mouth of the Marquise. Marquise Cut Diamonds

The marquise has a very big surface area for the carat weight so is an excellent option if you want a bigger looking diamond, for fewer dollars.

In Marquise cut diamonds avoid what is called a "Bow Tie" effect, a very noticeable darkened area in the shape of a bow tie towards the middle of the Marquise cut diamond. Typical length to width ratios in marquise cut diamonds are 1:1.75 - 2.25.
