A request by the French royalty paved way for the origin of the adorable Marquise cut diamonds which are being placed in the engagement rings very gracefully. Marquise cut diamonds were known to be royal cut with their very grandeur and splendor. They are equally carried off gloriously by numerous celebrities too.
Coming back to the stints of royalty and Marquise cut rings, a fact needs to be remembered that the cut can be viewed in the Crown Jewels of Great Britain. In one of those brooches of Queen Mary, features 6.8 carat Cullinan stone with a suspension of 11.5 carats Marquise diamond cut from a Cullinan VI stone. The surprising factor is that it is still worn by Queen Elizabeth II, which is a chip cut from another large Cullinan diamond.
Below are some of the alluring Marquise Diamond settings that can be perfect for engagement rings.
Protective Setting with V-Tip
Due to the prominent shapes at both the ends of the cut, these diamonds are always prone to damage like chips or cuts. The V-Prong designs had been created to solve such an issue. However, lately, they have found to be a trendsetter with many of the buyers preferring them as their special engagement ring. To meet the requirement of offering complete protection to the stone, they are often shielded fully, protecting both the tips. These kinds of protective settings compel the makers to completely eliminate the tension settings. There are two varieties of V-tip protective settings, namely:
V-Tip Bezel setting: For the purpose of protecting the stone from every side including the tips, the surrounding metal acts like a metal halo. This can be found in most of the solitaire setting rings as it turns out to give a contemporary appeal. Moreover, unlike the vertical set solitaire bezel rings, an Avant-Garde appeal would be epitomized with horizontal bezel marquise cut rings.
V-Tip Prong setting: Prong set for Marquise cut diamonds would call for two V-prongs at the tips and four other standard prongs, considering the safety of the stone. The examples of such a setting could be of white gold and Platinum metal that makes the diamonds look brighter with causing any distraction in the passage of light.
