Marquise Engagements Rings: Timeless and Extraordinary

Marquise engagement rings are stunning to behold. They are oval shaped diamonds with pointed ends. They typically have a brilliant cut and features many facets that produce an exceptional luster.

The History of the Marquise Cut

The marquise cut is believed to have origins in 18th century France. According to legend, King Louis XV instructed the court jewelers to design a marquise diamond ring to complement the smile of the Marquise de Pompadour, who was his mistress. The accuracy of this story is debatable, but it does link this luxuriously styled cut to the aristocracy; the word “marquise” is the feminine version for “marquess,” which is a noble title that ranks between a duke and an earl.
