Trend: marquise engagement rings
The round brilliant diamond is an engagement ring classic and it’s not going anywhere. But brides-to-be are again falling in love with the aristocratic marquise setting engagement ring style.
A marquise is a double-pointed, boat-shaped setting or stone that is long and thin with gently curved sides coming to a point on either end. Legend has it that the marquise diamond was named for the Marquise de Pompadour, a mistress of King Louis XV, because its outline resembled the shape of her mouth. The marquise shape can make the finger look longer and slenderer. Plus, this shape also makes smaller stones appear larger.
With so many winning traits, the marquise diamond is a trending choice. So why not choose a unique diamond shape for your wedding or engagement ring?
