The marquise diamond is a one-of-a-kind cut that loosely resembles a smile. Elongated in appearance, it tapers towards the two ends and grows broad at the centre. The history of this cut dates back to the 18th century in the reign of King Louis XV of France. While marquise diamond isn’t a very common choice when talking about engagement rings, it is quite the preferred cut for those who want to make a statement by donning a uniquely shaped rock. This fancy-shaped diamond adds immense character to every ornament it is a part of.
The marquise cut was initially designed exclusively for diamonds. However, the whimsical shape caught the eye of many a craftsman who then used the cut for rubies, sapphires and other precious and semi-precious stones.
The drama of this diamond cut can be seen in its 50 plus facets. The elliptical shape often tends to make the wearer’s finger look thin and long. At Dharam Exports India, we offer you the best calibrated diamonds, loose diamonds and customised diamonds to support your jewellery designs.
