The 1980's is fighting it's way back folks. We are seeing the rebirth of the Marquise Shape Diamond. Now before you go "yuk... blah ... ew" or say never. Remember, not too long ago people said "I don't like white gold jewelry", and now it is, debatably, the leading trend. (Although yellow gold is coming back... but that's a discussion for another blog post...)
It is, in its finest form, one of the more unusual shaped/cut diamonds out there. But com'on!?! Who doesn't like a diamond shaped like a football?
The fact stands though, it's shape gives more size for the budget. And I will admit I hated them when popular opinion was not in favor of the Marquise.
However, I now stand corrected... cause take a look at this beauty.
