Marquise diamond engagement rings are a perfect choice for couples interested in a classic shape yet want to set themselves apart from the predictable round and princess cut diamonds. The narrow oval shape marquise diamonds with tapered, pointed ends originated in 18th century France. Because of their elongated shape, they are also known as boat-shape or navette diamonds.
Marquise diamond is classified as a type of fancy cut containing 56 facets. It also has the best brilliance of all the fancy shapes. These help to give the marquise cut diamond engagement rings that elegant style with a sophisticated twist.
Engagement is a joyous occasion. You don’t want to spoil it with a pair of less than perfect marquise diamond engagement rings. So, here are some pointers to look out for when choosing a marquise engagement ring.
You want to pay special attention to the proportions of the marquise cut diamond. The ideal length to width ratio is somewhere between 1.8 and 2 to 1. If it is too long, the ring looks like a sliver. And too short, it looks like a stub. The ratio will also affect the bow-tie effect to some extents.
2. Bow-Tie Effect
When a marquise diamond is not properly cut, you can see quite obviously in the middle portion a darken area visually resembling a formal bow tie. This is the famous bow-tie effect everyone dreads. The less bow-tie shadowing, the better the quality of the cut.
You almost cannot escape the bow-tie effect with a marquise diamond. It is a part of the charm and uniqueness of marquise diamond engagement rings. The key is the degree of the shadow though. And the delight is in finding one where the effect is practically invisible.
3. Shape of Your Finger
A marquise is a slim diamond and normally set to orientated vertically on the finger. The slender and longer the finger, the better the marquise will flow and become the main attraction. Of course, you can also have it set crosswise. This placement is more suitable for short and wider finger.
4. Certificate and Warranties
Diamonds come with certificates as with any fine jewelry. The dealer will have their guarantees and policies too. Make sure you ask for these documents for your marquise diamond engagement rings.
