Marquise engagement rings had their first heyday in the late 70′s and early 80′s. The elegant, elongated shape, combined with the fire and sparkle that only a brilliant cut affords made this diamond cut enormously popular for engagement rings. The settings then tended to combine the cut with yellow gold and possibly a smattering of channel set accent diamonds. However now, we see a trend in women who sell engagement rings with marquise cuts – or better yet, bring in their diamonds to upgrade their wedding set. And while sometimes our clients like a totally different cut and shape, sometimes all it takes is a new setting to breathe new life into a cherished diamond. This stunning 5 carat marquise needed a little zsush – so it met a gorgeous platinum setting studded with .5 ctw of round brilliant diamonds and .93 ctw of baguettes. Of course, pictures and descriptors don’t do this deco inspired beauty justice – so we’re sharing video!
