If you're looking for an engagement ring that has both an edge and that coveted vintage flair, then a marquise is the right pick for you, dear brides-to-be. Not familiar with this particular style ring? A marquise-cut diamond is often referred to as the eye-shaped cut or the boat-shaped cut because of its elongated form and pointed ends. It has a rich history that, according to Brillance, dates back to the 18th century when "King Louis XV of France commissioned a jeweler to design a cut shape that resembled the lips of his mistress." Pretty interesting, right?
It's no surprise that the ring is still so widely beloved today. It's elegant, has an edge, and, as mentioned before, gives off that vintage flair so many of us covet. Another thing worth mentioning about this particular style: A marquise-cut engagement ring elongates and slenderizes the wearer's finger because of its long, narrow shape—and frankly, who doesn't want that?
