The marquise cut is an impressive cut with plenty of history . The name “marquise” refers to a hereditary rank above a count but below a duke and comes from courtiers wearing marquise cut diamonds in order to show off their rank. Marquise cut gems are also often referred to as “navette”, which means “little ship” in French, because of the marquise’ boat-like shape. We have set a stunning 14.09ct of marquise cut Daniel Steiger created Diamondeau®, our exclusive substitute for natural diamond in the center. A truly impressive statement trilogy ring.
