The length of the marquise diamond makes fingers look
long and slender. The shape of the marquise can really
get the most out of the carat weight, and the diamond
may look larger than it actually is. Try the marquise in a
setting with round, or pear shaped stones. The length to
width ratio of a marquise diamond will determine how it
looks from the top. The most traditional marquise diamonds
have length to width ratios between 1.75 and 2.25.
