Back in Style: Vintage Marquise Engagement Rings

Just like fashion, jewelry styles and trends come and go, often returning for a newer, more modern revival. What’s old is new again, and the up-surging demand for vintage and vintage-inspired engagement rings has inspired many couples to choose vintage cut diamonds to accent the ring that seals their marriage vows.

The marquise cut is a historic gem cut, making the marquise a natural choice for vintage designed engagement rings. With the exploding popularity of vintage designs, the marquise has once again taken the spotlight as one of the most popular choices for accent stones in bands. The shape is so popular that it has even inspired intricate details within band designs.

Marquise Draped in Regal Brocade

Pull luxurious details from the rich with the regal beauty of vintage floral brocade fabrics to create an engagement ring with the whimsy and charm of the past.

Use white marquise-shaped gemstones or diamonds to create accents against intricate winding diamonds. A custom engagement ring may be designed with larger carat marquise accent stones to weave a remarkably impressive brocade-style engagement ring. Delicately-sized marquise gemstones, like those in the Twisted Petal diamond ring, capture a refined and subtle style for a sweet vintage floral brocade throwback. For a sleek style, select an engagement ring with an Infinity Twist. In an infinity twist, round diamonds twist and curve into large marquise shaped designs and the ring features a quarter-carat of round diamonds.

Marquise de Art Deco

Marquise stones grace many vintage engagement rings from the Art Deco period. Create Art Deco vintage-inspired engagement rings using the marquise shape as the focal point of the ring. Play with color by adding gemstones and side stones of other shapes to complement the marquise pattern and to add geometric symmetry to the design.

For a refined Art Deco appeal, you can alternate round-cut diamonds with marquise diamonds for a band with a line of flapper-infused elegance. Balance with diamonds is also ideal for a clean look and to maintain optimum geometric symmetry. The Bezel engagement ring ring can be customized to create an alternating Art Deco pattern of bezel set marquise stones and round brilliant diamonds. Choose birthstones or other gemstones (like onyx) to add a personal touch to the ring.

The flushed beauty of rose gold is enhanced with multitudes of round diamonds set within marquise shaped designs. This delicate kind of look provides the beautiful shape of the marquise with the dazzle classic round diamond accents to truly accentuate the elegance of the engagement ring.
