Guide to Buying Dainty & Handmade Marquise Cut Engagement Rings

Choosing an engagement ring is a significant decision, reflecting deep personal meaning and a commitment to a shared future. For those drawn to elegance and unique design, a dainty, handmade Marquise Cut engagement ring might be the perfect choice. This guide will navigate you through the process of selecting a Marquise Cut engagement ring that not only symbolizes your love but also suits your personal style and budget.

Understanding the Marquise Cut

The Marquise Cut diamond, also known as the "navette" shape, boasts an elongated body with pointed ends. This cut is not only striking for its distinctive shape but also for its ability to elongate the finger of its wearer, making it a flattering choice for many. The history of the Marquise Cut dates back to the 18th century, named after the Marquise de Pompadour, for whom King Louis XV of France commissioned a diamond to match her smile.

The Appeal of Handmade Rings

Handmade engagement rings offer a level of uniqueness and craftsmanship that mass-produced rings simply cannot match. Choosing a handmade Marquise Cut ring means investing in a piece of art that carries the individual touch of its creator, making it as unique as your love story.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Ring

1. Diamond Quality

When selecting a Marquise Cut diamond, consider the 4Cs: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat. The elongated shape of the Marquise Cut can highlight certain imperfections and color tints more than other shapes, so opt for a higher clarity and color grade to ensure the stone’s beauty shines through.

2. Ring Setting

The setting of your Marquise Cut engagement ring will significantly affect its overall look and how it wears over time. Popular settings for a dainty look include:

  • Prong Setting: This setting uses metal claws to hold the diamond in place, allowing more light to pass through and enhancing the stone's brilliance.
  • Bezel Setting: A metal rim encircles the diamond, providing great protection for the stone and a modern appearance.
  • Pave Setting: Small diamonds are set closely together along the band, adding extra sparkle that complements the central Marquise Cut diamond.

3. Metal Choice

The metal you choose for the band can impact both the ring’s appearance and its longevity. Options include:

  • Platinum: Durable and pure, platinum is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
  • Gold: Available in various colors including yellow, white, and rose, each offering a different aesthetic.

4. Ring Size and Comfort

Ensure the ring fits comfortably, especially since Marquise Cut diamonds can make a ring feel larger. Consider a slight resizing for optimal comfort and security.

Where to Buy Handmade Marquise Cut Rings

Opting for a handmade ring means looking beyond traditional jewelers. Consider these options:

  • Independent Jewelers: Local artisans often provide a more personal purchasing experience and the opportunity for custom designs.
  • Online Marketplaces: Websites like Etsy allow you to discover artisans from around the world who specialize in handmade jewelry.
  • Bespoke Jewelers: Some jewelers offer bespoke services where you can be involved in designing your unique engagement ring.

Customizing Your Marquise Cut Ring

Customization can make your engagement ring truly one-of-a-kind. Work with your jeweler to incorporate personal touches such as a custom engraving or choosing a unique diamond setting that reflects your personal style.

Maintaining Your Marquise Cut Engagement Ring

To keep your dainty Marquise Cut ring sparkling, regular maintenance is essential. This includes cleaning the ring with a soft brush and mild soap, and having it checked by a professional jeweler annually to ensure the settings and prongs remain secure.
