Marquise Cut Halo Diamond Engagement Ring

The Ivy ring is a marquise cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Art Deco Era, circa 1925! This ring centers a marquise cut diamond of approximately 1.33 carats, H-I color, SI1 clarity. The diamond is set in a platinum setting with three vertically-set baguettes to each side. A halo of 14 round diamonds outlines the marquise shape with an additional round diamond outside of the baguettes. The side diamonds combine for approximately 0.45 carats. The ring is size 5.5 and can be resized!

Why We Love It

That old-cut marquise is a stunning shape with the prettiest of patterns! Combine that with sleek baguette side stones and a halo to bring high shine to this low-profile dream! And although it sits close to the finger, this ring has a great surface area and enough contrast in depth to keep you interested, with the central stone elevated slightly above the halo and the baguettes. The platinum setting is silky smooth and absolutely Art Deco, with charming little geometric patterns along open metalwork. This marquise cut halo diamond engagement ring is quite the stunner!

The Marquise Cut: Lots To Love In A Little Boat!

The Marquise cut is also known as the Navette cut, meaning “little boat.” But this shape has lots to love! Here are just a few reasons:

  • A Marquise Appears Larger. The marquise cut is one of the best ways to get the most out of a diamond if you’re looking for something sizable. But because of its unique shape, it doesn’t overburden your finger! The Ivy ring is a great example—and its size is amplified by the halo!
  • A Marquise Is Great for Any Finger. A marquise diamond is uniquely flattering for any finger, no matter the size!
  • A Marquise Elongates Your Finger. In addition to looking great on any finger, a marquise can help your finger appear longer and thinner. Again, this is even more impressive because the cut itself appears so much larger than other diamond shapes!

The Marquise cut was first developed in the 1700s when King Louis XIV of France commissioned a design that would remind him of his lover’s lips. In vintage jewelry, a marquise cut halo diamond engagement ring is an absolute treasure!
