Matching Marquise Cut Step Diamonds

The historical significance of the Marquise Cut

The marquise cut stands out among all other diamond shapes not only because of its unique elongated oval shape but its fascinating and heart warming historical significance. The story dates back to the 1700’s. King Louise XIV commanded his official court jeweler to come up with a diamond shape that would reflect the shape of the mouth of his beloved mistress Jean Antoinette Poisson, who held the title of  Marquise de Pompadour.

While most diamond shapes have a deep symbolic meaning, none come close to this pure devotion of love and passion.

The benefits provided by the Marquise Cut

The Marquise offers a feminine quality that other diamond shapes will find quite difficult to match, thanks to its flattering result of making a woman’s  finger appears slimmer.  In addition, the Marquise is known for truly maximizing a diamonds size and giving the illusion of being bigger than it actually is, making it a popular choice of placement in pendants, necklaces and more.  

Experience is key

With great beauty comes great responsibility, and due to its elongated nature the marquise has quite a few drawbacks that can only be avoided by the most experienced artisans. Perhaps the most common issue is what is known as the Window effect, which leads to reduced colors and diminishes the beauty and quality of the piece. Luckily, this can be solved with knowledge and experience, and involves adding additional crown facets to the cut.
