It was the 1960's-1970's. The great Liz Taylor and Richard Burton were at the peak of their acting careers, and the popular fancy shape diamond was the marquis. In fact, the marquis shape has made a big comeback today. The marquis cut is a fancy shape diamond with two end points, it has a length to width ratio of 1.7 to 2.10 mm's and contains 58 facets. According to legend, this beautiful cut was invented during the mid 1700's at the request of King Louis XV, who wanted a diamond cut in the shape of his mistress's smile! Our collection of marquis cuts include CVD diamonds and clarity enhanced marquis diamonds. Many of our marquis are accompanied by a GIA diamond reports. Our selection of engagement rings is always ethical and conflict free, that’s our guarantee! We are so excited that one of our favorite fancy shape diamonds has made a comeback, and it looks like it’s here to stay!
