Marquise engagement rings are characterized by their unique shape, originating from King Louis XIV of France who created this shaped to showcase his jewels and translates to mean “little boat". This type of engagement ring appears as a more dramatic and elongated oval ring style with more crisp edges. Marquise-cut diamonds are popular choices for designer jewelers and Italian designers of engagement rings due to their shimmering brilliance and one-of-a-kind design. The center of the marquise diamonds can also create a star-like appearance, and are selected for use in Helzberg Radiant Star collections. Choose your metal type, ring style and design to create the ultimate engagement ring. Add diamonds or accent with gemstones to create your own royal masterpiece.
