So many, many years ago - in the 1990ies - I lived in Southern Utah for a while. Being European, lots of things fascinated me. Also that people got married so early - Utahn thing though. Lots of girls, only a bit older than me, got engaged (sometimes after only a few weeks) and were proudly showing their erings... marquise erings, almost without exception. I could only stare at such big rocks then (what they seemed then) and deep within fantasise to one day have a diamond of my own (However, in my dreams it was never a marquise). Nevertheless for all the years that came I stayed fascinated, maybe strangely intrigued by this particular shape. Today I think it can be very beautiful. So please show me your marquise diamonds and let me feel nostalgic.

I will never get sick of this epic set. I could see a million pics and still feel excited for you haha.

Thank you! I love marquise diamonds. I love them set east west and diagonally. I never even thought of marquise until I upgraded. I was originally going to go with a marquise, but Alex at Parks Fine Group found this moval and I just love the facets on this diamond (between marquise and oval). Fell in love right away.

I'm sad I only have a copy of a picture of my original engagement ring. It really was a lovely marquise. Sadly, the stone was switched during a repair, so we replaced it with an upgrade. Edit to add that I got engaged in 1986, but you could probably tell that from the '80s style setting.
