The Correct Size For Your Marquise Cut Diamond Pendant

One of the advantages of the marquise cut diamond is that it looks a bit bigger than it really is. Keep this in mind when you shop for your marquise diamond pendant. Don’t buy a large solitaire diamond pendant with a high carat value and then compromise on the grade of the cut and clarity. The imperfections of a larger diamond are more visible, and even more so if it is worn in a diamond necklace. The larger-looking marquise cut diamond allows you to afford a higher quality diamond pendant with a smaller carat value.
