With their pointed ends and graceful curves, marquise-cut diamonds have an appealing almond shape that merges the most distinctive elements of oval and pear-shaped diamonds and makes a striking choice for engagement rings. Due to their sizable surface area, marquise-cut diamonds appear larger than their actual carat weight and feature an elongated shape which offers a lengthening and slimming effect.
Due to their pointed tips, it is important to be aware that marquise-cut diamonds are more liable to chipping. A prong setting, however, will protect the tip of your diamond. Halo settings also provide protection and give the additional benefit of amplifying your marquise-cut diamond engagement ring, making it appear bigger.
