We’re in it for the long haul with these 16 marquise engagement rings. The marquise style has made the rounds in terms of proposal appeal from the 1700’s to today, with its one-of-a-kind shape meant to catch every eye in the room. Curved kind of like a football, this elongated diamond shape is full of character and pizazz with a sparkle that seems to go on forever. So if you’re looking for a ring with distinction, look no further than the timeless marquise!

Did you know this shape originated with King Louis XIV in France? It was frequently worn as a sign of status by members of the Court, though it was first modeled after the lips of the Sun Kin’s mistress. No wonder it has an air of majesty about it.

So much Old World beauty in these designs! While gorgeous on its own, this diamond is only enhanced further by halos, baguettes, pavé bands or mix-ins with colorful gems. We’re suckers for a pop of sapphire or ruby!
