Marquise Brilliant Cut

The name "Marquise" came from a legend of the Marquise of Pompadour that the Sun King wanted a Diamond to be polished into the shape of the mouth of the Marquise! The typical Marquise Brilliant contains 56 facets.

What to watch out for:
A poor cut in Marquise is most often detectable by the "bow-tie effect" which is judged by the unaided eye.
