Marquise Cut Lab Grown Diamonds
Marquise cut lab-grown diamonds are shaped like a boat with pointed ends, they have a large open table, and a symmetrical shape, with typically 56 facets. These facets are cut and polished to reflect light and create a mesmerizing sparkle. The shape and angle of each facet is precisely calculated to enhance the diamond's brilliance, fire, and scintillation.
The length-to-width ratio is also an important factor in determining the overall appearance of the diamond, with an ideal ratio of 1.75 to 2.25, ensuring a symmetrical shape. At LaBrilliante, our cutting and polishing techniques are of the highest standards, resulting in Marquise cut lab-created diamonds that shine and sparkle at their fullest potential.

The history of the marquise cut diamond dates back to the 18th century, when it is said to have been created by King Louis XV of France. The story goes that the King commissioned a diamond cutter to create a shape that resembled the mouth of his mistress, Madame de Pompadour, whom he referred to as his "marquise." The result was a diamond cut with pointed ends and a curved center, which came to be known as the "marquise cut."
One interesting fact about the marquise cut is that it has the highest crown surface area of all diamond cuts, meaning that it can appear larger than other diamonds of the same carat weight. Additionally, the elongated shape of the marquise cut can make fingers appear longer and more slender.
In terms of technical details, the marquise cut diamond typically has 33 facets on the crown and 25 on the pavilion. This design allows for maximum light reflection and sparkle. However, due to its pointed ends, the marquise cut can also be more prone to chipping and breakage if not handled carefully.
Another technical aspect is that the marquise diamond is the most challenging diamond to cut, since it requires a high level of symmetry and precision in the cutting process. Even small variations in the angles of the facets can greatly affect the diamond's overall appearance and value.
