The marquise cut was created in 1745 for the Marquise de Pompadour, King Louis XVI’s mistress. Its narrow shape was said to resemble the Marquise’s mouth. This stone is known for its incredible symmetry. If the marquise cut is not symmetrical, the stone may have an imbalanced look.

Marquise cut gemstones are popular today because of their ability to elongate the wearer’s finger and because they optimize the diamond’s carat weight. Today’s marquise cut stones differ from antique marquise cut stones by only a small amount; older stones tend to have wider main facets and an open culet.
