Fashion-Style Marquis engagement rings are oval fashioned diamonds which have both ends pointed. Marquis diamonds have 56 facets and are double as long in length as their width. The 2 to 1, length to width ratio is measured ideal and something to think about when shopping for a marquis, as it will effect the sparkliness of the diamond. A good cut is also important in that it helps avoid the dreaded "bow tie" effect, whereby the center of the diamond is darker and has condensed brilliance. While the Marquis diamond is by no way my preferred shape, it boasts a number of breezy properties: 1) It has a cool story at the back of it: The shape of the stone was said to be designed for Louis XIV of France who hunted a diamond bent after the Marquise de Pompadour’s smile. 2) The marquis diamond is well thought-out one of the most suitable for the hand as it makes the finger look added slender. 3) The stone may give the impression of being bigger than it in point of fact is. The marquis diamond not only has a large facade area but the extended lines can make the carat size look better than what you plunked down money for. I’ve been partial by some of my friends who also don’t like the pear. I remember one time when a friend of mine got engaged. My friend, who was nearer to this person, forwarded me a picture of her pear diamond with a disparaging caption about the ring shape. All cattiness aside, everybody has different views on what looks superior, so don’t let my taste unduly control you. The pear shaped diamond is measured to be a round brilliant diamond at one end and a marquise shape at the other. It is every so often referred to as a tear drop due to its smoothed side and sharp edge. A length-to-width ratio between 1.45 and 1.75 is naturally considered most attractive for the pear. Just so you know, the pear-shaped diamond is less glittery than the round brilliant, and loses more brilliance, if poorly balanced. One thing in particular to avoid when purchasing for a pear shape is the dreaded bow tie effect: a dark area in the middle of the diamond which looks similar to a black bow tie. It is hard to avoid the bow tie effect entirely with the pear. One nice thing about the pear is that it tends to make one’s fingers look slimmer. Hearts can moreover be wide or long. They are most related to the pear shaped diamond but have a crevice at the top. When looking to buy a heart, make sure the top arches are regular in appearance. Irregular hearts will look more like pears. When looking at other women’s ring fingers, you won’t see too many hearts. Hearts are less in general found in an engagement ring setting and more generally seen in earrings or pendants. I will declare one good thing about heart shapes: that they cost around 20%-25% less than round diamonds. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
