I have recently purchased a 0.83ct marquise, which I think will be a nice size for me (finger size 5) as it will not look too 'small' but wont be really out-there either as I feel a bit self conscious about wearing huge rings that gets lots of questions.

I am in that exciting phase now where I have the diamond, and now I need to choose a setting! I have some ideas but am still stuck in that phase where I like lots of things and am no closer to choosing one. I have browsed the Show me the bling threads here on marquise engagement ring and have visited the main online vendor sites to find settings for marquise diamonds (Blue Nile, James Allen, Eternity by Yoni, Whiteflash etc).

I originally thought I wanted to go with a vintage look, but I do also like the clean classic lines of a solitaire (with the marquise shape, this will be a unique looking ring anyway, even if the solitaire itself is not unique). I absolutely adore the look of marquise's in halos but my marquise diamond is already 9.05mm x5.13mm and I don't think I could pull over any more finger coverage so I made a decision to not go with a halo. I am not averse to sidestones as long as they are smallish and in your proportion to centre stone.

Show me any marquise settings that you have saved in your favourites folder. I know I have done a lot of setting research already but I know that Pricescopers always come up with the wild, wonderful and unusual! Cant wait to see any beautiful marquise settings I may not have seen already

This is my marquise (3.15 carats) that I have had set two different ways... both were done by David Klass who is really lovely to work with

I am not a fan of marquise in diamonds, however, I like this setting and may have a CS set this way in future.

This new Erika Winters makes me want a Marquise too! I love this setting... She made it East West but I think I would love this one either way.

Re: Post your fave settings for marquise- I need new inspira

Rainbowradish - holy cow, that is some marquise!! Stunning diamond. I like both the settings you posted, but the second one is more my 'style'. I have also worked with David before on a number of previous ring projects and I agree he is great to work with. Do you mind posting some more photos of the gallery of the second reset you posted. I like the pave basket and the prongs look incredible! (Not a huge fan of those bulky looking v-tip prongs on the end of the majority of marquise rings these days.)

Dk168 - the first setting you posted is fantastic, and yes a coloured stone would look awesome in that but that would be a right hand ring style for me and I want this as an alternate wedding set. Also, the double halo marquise ring you posted is exquisite - are those pink diamond in the inner halo? (Or just reflection of the pink background?) Squeeee! I can just picture my new marquise in a double halo with fancy pink melee! (have to win the lottery first.......)

MayK- trule gorgeous ring. How big is that marquise in the centre? The rich gold colour and milgrain detail is divine! This setting is not really suitable (for me) as an engagement ring, but you definitely have me leaning in the direction of yellow gold (and milgrain too!)

Had this one done last year (setting by Mark Silverstein in So. California) - used a champagne colored marquise and had them add rose gold to the upper twist and for the prongs around the stone. Came out beautiful.

Queenie60 - do you happen to have any handshots? I love this! And how big was the marquis you had for the centrestone?

Will take some photos to show you. My marquise is .84 carat. And I did not have the halo done around bottom of stone. I wanted stone to stand out. It's a great right hand ring. Will get back to you asap with photos of my ring. Glad you like it. 8-)

Re: Post your fave settings for marquise- I need new inspira

Niel - I have seen this ring previously and thought it was such an interesting way to set a marquise. Just spectacular! this could really work for me as the band style would make me feel less self-conscious when wearing the diamond. (9mm X 5mm is big for me when not a right hand ring!)

Also funnily enough, my husband rarely wears his wedding ring as he is an electrician and its unsafe to do so at work when wiring up cables etc so recently he got a small infinity symbol tattooed on his left ring finger which looks like a ring going around his finger. If i got this ring in the infinity symbol style, it would be pretty meaningful!! Matching infinity symbols on our wedding ring fingers

MY absolute FAVORITE MQ setting is called the "Cava" by the MaeVona brand - oMG - love it!!!!! I think your size diamond would look smashing. Sorry IDK how to attach a pic from their website.

So beautiful Ricezo! Looks really great on your finger.

My diamond is 9mm X 5mm and set EW on my size 4.75 finger, I'm not sure I could pull it off. But this is a fantastic idea for a right hand ring. I just might steal this setting idea from you!

Re: Post your fave settings for marquise- I need new inspira

I remember someone posted here an east-west set marquise in a very simple, modern platinum (maybe wg) bezel, no milgrain, no sidestones. The ring is GORGEOUS and so different, but I can't remember what thread it was on. Anyone else remember this ring? That was one of my favorites for sure and the first time I really loved a marquise stone! I'll update if I find the thread.

ETA: it's this ring but still not sure what the original thread was: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/forum/files/icp/_7421.jpg']https://www.pricescope.com/forum/files/icp/_7421.jpg[/URL]

ETA2: looks like Niel originally posted it on this thread: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/in-need-of-advice-for-an-engagement-ring.190396/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/in-need-of-advice-for-an-engagement-ring.190396/[/URL]

My humble marquise ring - a light yellow diamond set in a 14k yellow gold Eutruscan-style band ring, made by a local jeweler. (I can't seem to get a good shot of this ring!)

Re: Post your fave settings for marquise- I need new inspira

I have a marquise ring I was thinking about having reset at some point. Here are some pics of a style from my inspiration folder. I love the double halo, and angles of this design which really highlight the marquis shape. Personally, I would not use colored stones in the setting (or any diamond center stone setting for that matter), as no matter how beautiful, they draw the eye away from the center stone.

I hope you find just the perfect ring style that makes your heart sing. : )

Please be sure and post the pics of your end design.

...and a few more from the inspiration folder (these are both ovals, but I think both designs would translate beautifully to a marquise, as both designs play up the elongated shape).

(This beautiful yellow sapphire pic came from another Pricescoper, but I don't remember who in order to give proper credit -- I hope they don't mind!).

Enjoy! : )

P.S. therainbowradish -- love, love, love both your marquise settings (the first and last -- each so different & each gorgeous!). So glad you posted your rings here, as I followed along on your journey and love seeing the beautiful end results of your ring.

VRBeauty - not so humble, that is a statement ring!! The yellow gold is really wonderful, looks so comfy too

Celebrating25 - I adore the oval ring with the triple split shank - never seen anything like that before! Thanks - I hope i find something that makes my heart sing too.
Will definitely post in the SMTR forum when its finished

Catmom - beautfiful FLY marquise. that ring looks like a set with your tennis bracelet, are those FLYs in your bracelet aswell? I must say,your ring and bracelet look so good together

Apacherose - WOW,are those rubies in the halo of your favourites pic? If i had unlimited funds, I would create this ring with an emerald halo - to die for! Who is the designer of that ring? It is perfect!

Re: Post your fave settings for marquise- I need new inspira

So I have fallen in love with all of the rings people have posted in this thread. Thank you, its been so good to look at all the amazing images you have posted and seeing that marquise rings are definitely NOT outdated, they are simply stunning and perhaps my new favourite diamond shape.

After days of mulling over what to do, I have decided simple is best. As this is going to be an alternate wedding set,i dont want it be too RHR looking, but more classic and I really feel i can't pull off a halo especially a marquise halo (I would feel self-conscious wearing the ring everywhere and I want to avoid that, this ring needs to be an 'everyday' kind of ring!)

I have decided to go with a cathedral setting and taking my inspiration from Niel's previous gold marquise solitaire, I want triple claw prongs on the marquise end tips. Pave shank for that extra sparkle. Undecided on yellow gold or white gold, still mulling over that one
