Marquise-cut diamonds are renowned for their pointed ends and elegant curves, giving them a charming almond shape that seamlessly combines the most striking attributes of oval and pear-shaped diamonds, making this diamond cut an excellent choice for engagement rings. With a sizable surface area, marquise-cut diamonds appear larger than their actual carat weight, and their elongated shape offers a lengthening and slimming effect on the finger.
However, it is crucial to note that marquise-cut diamonds are more susceptible to chipping due to their pointed tips. To prevent damage, a prong setting will ensure your diamond remains unharmed. Additionally, a halo setting provides protection and offers the added benefit of making your diamond appear more prominent.
