Oval Diamond Engagement Rings
If you love the curved edges and sparkle of a round diamond, but want something more unique, an oval diamond fits the bill.
More about oval diamond engagement rings
It’s often said that oval cut diamonds are somewhere between the round and the Marquise shape, with an elongated round symmetrical shape.
Why should I choose an oval diamond engagement ring?
Ovals optimise carat weight, which means that oval diamonds often appear larger than a round diamond of the same carat weight–an impressive and economical choice. In addition, the elongated shape flatters the wearer by making the finger appear longer and slimmer.
What should I consider when choosing an oval diamond?
Similarly to pear and Marquise shape diamonds, some oval diamonds may exhibit a bow-tie effect. This occurs when light doesn’t bounce into the middle of the diamond because of the way it has been cut and appears as a visible bow-tie shape darkness in the diamond’s centre.
While most agree that this is part of an oval diamond’s beauty, a severe effect is undesirable. All of our diamonds are hand-inspected to ensure they do not possess a strongly visible bow-tie effect.
Who’s wearing oval diamond engagement rings?
In recent years, oval diamond engagement rings have seen an increase in popularity, with stars like Hailey Baldwin and Blake Lively leading the trend.
Their beauty is clear to see so it’s no surprise that oval diamonds make up around 15% of our engagement ring sales, making them the second most popular stone shape after round.
