3.20 TCW Marquise Cut Diamond Engagement Anniversary Valentines Jewellery Ring Boxed
Marquise cut features Yellow Gold plated over Sterling Silver
The Marquise Brilliant cut may also be referred to as the “Navette” shape, meaning â€œlittle boat,â€ as the shape of the diamond is said to mirror the hull of a small boat. It is generally comprised of 58 facets, with 33 on the crown and 25 on the pavilion, although the number of pavilion facets may range between 4 and 8. Additionally, Marquise shapes are sometimes cut with a â€œFrench tip,â€ which replaces the large bezel facet at the point with star and upper girdle facets.
French tips are also used in the Heart and Pear shapes. Even though the optimal ratio of the Marquise is 2:1, the shape is more traditionally cut to ratios ranging between 1.85 and 2.10 according to personal preference.
