If you desire a large stone with the optical performance of a round brilliant cut without the circular shape and with a lower price tag, the modified brilliant diamond engagement rings, available as an oval cut or Marquise cut diamond engagement ring may be just the ring you are looking for. These two diamonds possess a very large table, which is the flat facet that acts as the window into a diamond when in a face up position. The cuts fall into the modified brilliant category with facet patterns based on those found in the round brilliant cut diamond.
The oval cut diamond that we enjoy today was standardized in the 1960s, but the shape itself has been used with gemstones for over two centuries. Your oval shape will run the gamut from short and full-bodied to long and slender, ideally with a length-to-width ratio ranging between 1:33 and 1:66 to 1. A stone that is too shallow or deep will sacrifice brilliance. Your oval cut diamond from Mark Broumand will have ideal proportions, high quality and sparkle brightly.
Marquise cut diamonds not only offer a large surface area and brilliance, but is also one of the most unique shapes found in gems. Also referred to as the “Navette” cut, the French term translates into “little boat” since the shape is often compared to the hull of a boat. The outline is centrally ellipsoid, with ends that taper to fine and delicate points. Like the oval, you can find a Marquise cuts that are thin and long or short and wide. Symmetry will be critical in this cut and care should be taken that the points align with each other and the curves are identical.
An advantage to the elongated shape of both cuts is a lengthening effect on the finger which can also create an overall slimming effect of the hand. Both cuts will typically display 58 facets and have a large surface area, carat for carat over other diamond cuts; not only does this allow for a visually larger stone, but an equally smaller price tag. The oval cut or Marquise cut diamond can offer a great value to the budget conscious consumer that desires the brilliance of a round cut in a large stone.
The oval and marquise are stunning in any engagement ring style, bold and center-stage as a solitaire or accented in a halo, three-ring or side-stones setting. Mark Broumand offers a fine selection of other modified brilliants, including the romantic heart shaped engagement rings or the sophisticated and elegant pear shaped diamond engagement rings.
