This beautiful marquise cut diamond solitaire ring has a 0.91 carat marquise brilliant cut diamond set in a platinum six-prong Solitaire style head.
The marquise brilliant diamond measures 9.65 x 5.02 x 3.25 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.92. The length-to-width ratio should be in the 1.75-2.25 range. The closer to ratio is to 1.75 the “fatter” the diamond appears and conversely as the ratio approaches 2.0-2.25 the thinner the diamond width appears to the eye. The marquise shape diamond has a 64.7% depth percentage and a 54% table percentage. For marquise cut diamonds, we suggest a depth of 58-65.4% and table of 52-65% with smaller percentages producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The marquise brilliant diamond’s name originates 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 diamond. In the marquise brilliant shape, as with pear shape diamonds 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 optimal. This facet misalignment can detract from the brilliance, especially if it is an exaggerated or large dark bow tie appearance. At the Diamond Source of Virginia, we expressly 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 diamond is that the visual size of the diamond is much larger than you would imagine the carat weight would yield. This marquise diamond provides a big look for less money than most other diamond shapes.
This marquise diamond is carefully set in a six-prong Solitaire style head. The knife-edge shank (band around the finger) typically measures 2.5 mm, but the width can be increased if a wider band is desired. This Solitaire setting is set at a great height to showcase the brilliance and sparkle while the v-cap prongs protect the points of the marquise shape diamond.
The Solitaire style setting provides a time enduring, classic look displaying the beauty of the marquise cut diamond. A Solitaire setting is a great option for a shopper looking for classic elegance.

The marquise cut diamond should be your focus since it is the focal point and main investment.
