If you compare carat to carat- the Marquise diamond cut has the largest surface area, making it appear larger than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight.
The marquise is the football (AFL style) shaped diamond, others might say it's boat or eye shaped also. It's elongated cut makes this diamond stomp on the rest with approx 20% greater spread.
