Help me with my marquise engagement ring!!

I was thinking of taking my moms old engagement ring, just the diamond because her band is damaged and getting a new setting for it.

She has a marquise diamond, ive always thought of a princess or round cut so im not positive if i like this cut. I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies have a marquise cut or know someone that does and would like to share a pic of it for me so I can see the different styles/setting for a marquise cut.

Also does anyone have a sideways marquise ?! I just seen a pic of this and they look interesting!!

Thanks for your help!

Even though marquise wasn't my first pick I really like the idea of having the ring passed down from my mom. It would be special and meaningful to me. Se doesn't have a lot to give, so her being able to do this means a lot

I don't have a marquise diamond, so I took to Google!  

Here is a sideways one:

Another sideways FANCY one

Intricate band detailing can highlight a good diamond:

Not sure how large your Mom's diamond is, but you could opt for simple elegance:

And those were the interesting ones I saw.

Good luck!

I have a marquise. Just be mindful that it can be sharp and it can be hard to reach into pockets with a stone like that.

I'm not wearing it right now, it's actually getting plated. I have white gold for mine because I look terrible in yellow gold.

However, this is what it looks like. Those two points can be very sharp and I have a higher setting that this and it can sometimes get stuck on things. I love it and have learned to manage it just fine.

I know it's not a very popular cut right now so I like that their wouldn't be a lot of people with the same cut as me.mplus with us getting a new setting it would still be like we're creating/designing our own
