This gorgeous marquise cut diamond solitaire ring has a 0.79-carat marquise brilliant cut diamond set in a 14-karat yellow gold shank with a 14-karat white-gold six-prong Solitaire style head.
The marquise shape diamond measures 8.94 x 4.91 x 3.04 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.82. The length-to-width ratio should be in the 1.75-2.25 range. The closer the ratio is to 1.75, the “fatter” the diamond appears while as the ratio approaches 2.0 to 2.25 the thinner the diamond width appears. The marquise cut diamond has a 61.9% depth percentage and a 59% table percentage. For marquise cut diamonds, we recommend a depth of 58 to 65.4% and table of 52 to 65% with smaller percentages producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The marquise brilliant diamond takes is name from a legend that the Sun King desired a stone to be polished into the shape of the mouth of the Marquise of Pompadour. The marquise brilliant diamond is a football-shaped modified brilliant. In the marquise brilliant, as with pear shapes and other elongated fancy shape diamonds, there is an increased likelihood of having a “bow tie.” This is a dark area in the shape of a man’s bow tie that occurs when the cut of diamond facets reflecting light are not optimum. This facet misalignment can detract from the brilliance, especially if it is an exaggerated or overly dark bow tie effect. At the Diamond Source of Virginia, we specifically search for marquise brilliant diamonds without the bow tie effect to provide the most beautiful marquise diamonds for our clients. One of the best qualities of a marquise shape is that the visual size of the diamond is much larger than you would imagine the carat weight would yield. This marquise diamond shape provides a big look for less money than most other diamond shapes.
This marquise diamonds is carefully set in a six prong Solitaire style head. The solitaire shank (band around the finger) typically measures 2.5 mm, but the width can be increased if a wider band is desired.
