Why An Oval Cut Engagement Ring?

Oval cut engagement rings are well-liked for their distinctive and attractive appearance, which lengthens the finger and gives the hand a smaller appearance. They can be fashioned in a variety of ways and have a greater surface area than round cuts, giving the impression of a larger diamond. They often reflect more light, giving the diamond the appearance of being brighter.

What Setting Complements An Oval Cut?

An oval cut diamond can look beautiful in a solitaire setting, halo setting, three-stone setting, or vintage/antique setting. Think about elements like gem size, quality, and general design when choosing a setting. Ultimately, there is no one size fits all approach, it comes down to preference, taste and budget to make your perfect oval cut engagement ring.

Are Oval Engagement Rings Popular?

Halo, solitaire, and side stone settings are popular choices for an oval cut diamond. The central stone is surrounded by tiny diamonds in a halo, which makes it appear bigger and more brilliant. For a clean and sophisticated appearance, solitaire jewellery just displays the central diamond. Diamonds are set on either side of the side stone to increase brilliance. Each setting offers a distinctive appearance to highlight the brilliance of the oval-cut diamond.

Why Do Oval Diamonds Appear Bigger Than Round Diamonds?

Due to its longer form and higher crown, which creates a bigger surface area and more light reflection, oval diamonds look larger than round diamonds of the same carat weight. When comparing diamonds of the same carat weight, the perceived size difference is caused by shape rather than weight or size.

Why is an Oval Cut cheaper than a round?

Oval diamonds are typically less expensive than round diamonds because they are less in-demand and result in a lower yield from the rough diamond due to longer cut length. The price of a diamond is determined by several factors and can vary widely within each shape.

What is the difference between oval and cushion cut?

In terms of appearance and shape, a cushion cut diamond and an oval differ from one another. Oval cut diamonds have an extended shape that resembles an oval and provide a contemporary appeal. A cushion cut diamond, on the other hand, has a plush and romantic appeal because of its softened edges and softer, square form. Both cuts are common options for engagement rings, so which one you choose ultimately depends on your own taste and preferences.

What is the ideal length to width ratio for an oval diamond?

An oval diamond should have a length to width ratio of between 1.33 and 1.66. While retaining the diamond's elongated form, this ratio gives a pleasing and well-balanced look. A diamond's appearance will be more round in an oval with a ratio close to 1.33 and more elongated in an oval with a ratio close to 1.66. Personal choice and the final design of the ring will determine the optimal ratio for an oval diamond.
