Marquise is not my favorite cut, nor do I especially like halos, but for some reason I have really liked the marquise halos I’ve seen.  Would you consider getting it reset with a setting that includes sapphires somehow?

You could also just have it set into a different piece of jewelry… I guess it would have to be a pendant.  Can you use the smaller diamonds for a band?

It sounds like you really want the ring you designed, so maybe you should just put his mom’s ring aside for the time being and make it a separate decision/issue from your engagement ring.

I would sell the rings for the gold and have the diamonds turned in to a beautiful, modern looking pendant to wear on your wedding day – which should make his mom happy – and get the ring YOU want while keeping the diamond in the family.

That necklace is stunning! What a creative way to use a marquise diamond.

i would love a marquise halo ring… set either way i think they are super special. you could use the diamonds on the bands or trade in the bands+spare gold on the original ring for nicer setting

I totally understand about what the marquise being outdated.  I inherited a marquise diamond from my late mother.  Since it was the ring my dad gave to my mom, I wasn’t really willing to give it away, even though I HATED marquise diamonds.  My Darling Husband and I decided that we were going to use the diamond for my engagement ring anyways for sentimental purposes, so we started looking around.  Most big box jewelers did not have anything for marquise diamonds, so we had to design something on our own, and honestly we love it.  I know it isn’t the ring you orginally had in mind (mine wasn’t either), but you could design something similar, or more your style, with sapphires.  Also, when we were designing our ring, a lot of jewelers told us that the marquise stone was coming back, so if you were willing to wait, or you found the right jeweler, you may be able to sell it.  Here is my ring with a marquise.  I know it isn’t want you want. so you can take it or leave it; I just know how hard it is when you have a ring that is outdated!

I actually like marquis stones, but ‘chubbier’ ones, with more girth round the middle.

Can I suggest listing it on the diamond bistro? You might get some bites, I have seem marquis sell on there before…

While I’ve never favored marquise cuts either, after being on the bee and seeing what can be done with them, I really think you should re-set the diamond. You can add sapphires into the setting and you can get another sapphire ring at a later date, perhaps. I think the marquise could look so vintage, elegant, unique, a lot of different adjectives.
