In addition, the marquise stone needs special consideration when it comes to positioning it into an attractive design.

The marquise diamond which forms an oval design is commonly found in Edwardian designs. The stone itself is quite a bit more ornate than the regular stone, and often is featured grouped in smaller scale stones than larger ones.
