Marquise Cut Diamond: Ideal Proportions - Diamond Registry

Marquise Cut - According to the legend, the name is derived from the Marquise of Pompadour, and that King Louis XV of France wanted a diamond to be cut in the shape of the marquise’s smile. The marquise cut tends to emphasize the carat weight of the diamond, making it appear much larger than it is. It has the brilliance and fire of a perfect round brilliant cut. This slender cut is ideal for rings, as the elongated shape flatters the finger with tapering points at both ends.
