What is a Marquise Cut Lab Diamond?
A marquise lab diamond has 56 facets and is longer in shape, ending with a point on each side. A marquise lab diamond is a unique choice for those looking for something different because of its impressive and distinct appearance.
Because of its elongated shape, a marquise cut appears larger than other lab diamonds of the same carat weight and frequently makes the wearer's fingers appear thinner.
The Marquise Lab Diamond is a stunning alternative to more common lab diamond shapes such as the Round Brilliant or Cushion Cut.
Can Marquise Cut Lab Diamond have Bowtie Effect?
Yes, just like Oval Cut Lab Diamonds, Marquise Cut Lab Diamonds have bowtie effect due to their fancy, elongated shape. The bowtie is the dark space that runs across the centre of a lab diamond. The severity of a bowtie varies between lab diamonds: sometimes it is easily visible, and other times it is barely visible.
A Marquise Cut Lab Diamond with a prominent bowtie will detract from the stone's beauty. You should avoid selecting an Marquise Lab Diamond with a dominant bowtie.
Why select a Marquise Cut Lab Diamond?
When choosing a shape for your engagement ring, a marquise lab diamond is a unique option.
The cut quality of a Marquise Lab Diamond is difficult to determine due to its fancy, elongated shape. Depth and table percentages differ from lab diamond to lab diamond, and length to width ratio preference is based on personal preference.
It is generally recommended a H or higher for colour, and recommended looking for an S1 or higher for clarity.
