What is a Marquise cut?
The Marquise cut first appeared in Paris in 1745 in the French monarchy. King Louis XV commissioned his court jeweler to create a diamond that resembled the smile of his beautiful mistress, the Marchioness Madame de Pompadour.
Perhaps this romantic story is just a beautiful fairy tale, but the cut has gained great popularity around the world over time due to its graceful and at the same time playful form. In addition, being inlaid in a ring as a solitaire, the Marquis cut has the ability to visually lengthen its wearer’s fingers. The cut has 55 facets.
So it’s one of the best shapes if you are looking for a classic shape with an aristocratic look.
