When you think of marquise engagement rings, it’s possible that your face twinges with a look of repulsion. Okay, that’s dramatic, but you get what we mean—the engagement ring style hasn’t exactly been known to be the most cutting edge or modern. While marquise cuts were an extremely popular choice in the 1980s, the oblong, angular shape has lagged behind more popular resurgences of oval and pear-shaped diamonds, feeling a bit antiquated in comparison. But like with almost every other ‘80s trend to come back into the spotlight (puffy shoulders, embellished mini dresses, and shoulder pads, we’re most definteily looking at you), marquise engagement rings are experiencing a resurgence from ultra-modern settings to fresh designs with vintage appeal.

Just because a marquise engagement ring is a little “old school” doesn't mean it can't look entirely modern. In fact, many jewelry designers are putting a so-now twist on the ring shape with sleek, minimal designs and modern settings like east-west set stones, bezel settings, and double band silhouettes. Another way designers are making marquise stones feel fresh is with rose-gold metal, enamel detailing, open-ring designs, or setting them slightly off-kilter—these savvy design tactics are totally unique ways of giving the classic stone shape an of-the-moment feel.

If the idea of an antique design with retro touches is more your speed, a marquise-cut diamond is as gorgeous in yellow gold as it is platinum. Skip the east-west settings in favor of traditional north-south set stones and aim for slimmer stones that have more of an old-fashioned feel (winder marquise stones definitely appear more modern). For more of an art deco, choose white gold or platinum and consider accents like a thick halo, pavé band, or side stones to set off the center sparkler. In yellow gold, a hammered or granule band will look perfectly vintage-inspired.
