The Basics: Marquise Shaped Diamonds

The Basics: Marquise Shaped Diamonds

Said to be named for a famous beauty at the French court in the 18th Century, the marquise cut is known by the French name navette, which means "little boat."

The marquise has the same cut as a round brilliant, with 58 facets, stretched into an elongated shape with a point at the top and bottom.

Marquise diamonds are refined and elegant. This regal cut can accentuate long, delicate fingers and make shorter fingers appear longer and more slender.
