Marquise diamonds boast elegant curves tapering to fine points at each end, and their distinctive faceting creates a dazzling show of sparkle.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, marquise diamonds gained popularity in Europe, especially among the aristocracy and nobility. The shape was often associated with luxury, gracing the jewelry of royals and the elite. Over time, the marquise cut evolved, reaching the height of its popularity during the Art Deco era of the 1920s and 1930s when geometric and angular designs were in vogue.
Today, marquise diamonds continue to be a cherished choice for engagement rings and other fine jewelry, admired for their unique and timeless appeal.
