Legend says that the name of this cut came when King Louis XV commissioned his jeweler to make a gemstone in the shape of his mistress lips: the fabulous Marquise Madame de Pompadour. A sleek and seductive design, the perfect Marquise cut gemstone should always be cut in a 2:1 aspect ratio, meaning it must be twice as long as it is wide to have the proper aesthetic effect.

- I sent for this stone hoping it would be beautiful and you didn't disapoint.
Great looking Gem
- Great looking gem, cannot tell the difference. cannot wait to see them mounted.
- I purchased a 3 ct. for my wife and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect stone. She gets compliments all the time
Don't hesitate...these stones are great!
- I have the .95 ct marquis. It is beautiful! I am so happy I found this site and so glad I ordered! An .85 would be a better size. The stones have so much fire!
- I just ordered a loose stone about a week ago. My engagement ring lost it's original diamond the day my fiance proposed. That was two years ago. I haven't replaced it yet because I couldn't see paying the price for a new diamond given our financial circumstances. Then I found Diamond Nexus. You are an answer to a prayer, and now after two years of having an ring with no stone you have given me a stunning diamond that I can afford and am proud to wear!
- I had the stones replaced in my Diamonique ring, which was purchased 12 years ago. The stones I purchased were a .95 center stone and two .10 flanking stones. My ring has never looked so beautiful! I now plan to have a custom band made to accent my ring for my vow renewal in January. Thank you Diamond Nexus!
- I recieved my 1.3 ct. cut stone and was blown away by it's overall quality. A warning however. This stone turned out to be much larger than i had anticipated. Almost half an inch long. It would make a wonderful stone for a necjlace but is much to large for a ring. I was fearful that it would be too small so i am deffinately surprised and happy. I will be exchangin it for a .85 ct stone in hopes that it will be a better size for a ring. Great value.
