What Is A Marquise Cut Diamond?
A marquise cut diamond is a modified brilliant cut with two points (at each end), complimented by an elegant elongated surface. If you want to accentuate diamond (carat) size and brilliance, the marquise cut diamond certainly offers that unique difference.
Brilliant cut diamonds radiate from their core with the round cut being the most popular, according to the Gemological Institute of America. However, many other brilliant cuts such as the oval, cushion, pear, and heart remain just as awe-inspiring. So what makes the marquise diamond a cut above the rest?
