Oval Cut Diamond Rings

If you are drawn to the classic allure of brilliant round diamonds but want something a little different, an oval cut engagement ring may be the style you love. The oval shape offers similar fire and radiance as the traditional round, and the elongated form flatters the hand by making fingers appear longer and narrower.

Prince William asked for Kate Middleton’s hand with his late mother’s 18-carat oval sapphire ring. Princess Diana’s regal stone is framed by 14 white accent diamonds.

The unique oval cut was first introduced by Lazar Kaplan, founder of LKI a premier diamond-cutting company. Kaplan used the mathematical formulas and standards published by famous mathematician, Marcel Toklowsky in 1919, to create and perfect the elongated shape in 1960.

A brilliant cut diamond is all about the amount of light that reflects the surface. This is determined by the diamond’s facets, proportions, symmetry, and polish. Toklowsky stated that the ideal stone proportions will reflect all light to the surface, with no brilliance fleeing through the bottom or sides.

Another important factor to consider is the length to width ratio. When browsing loose oval diamonds, the optimal ratio is between 1.3 to 1.65. This is because the elongated oval shape makes impurities and inclusion more noticeable than in a round cut diamond. Therefore, when shopping for an oval diamond engagement ring, color and clarity are of the utmost importance. But keep in mind, a certified diamond doesn’t have to be without flaws or color to be stunning, and if the rock is skillfully cut, any inclusions should not be clearly seen by the naked eye. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds wed in 2012 with the famous bride wearing a dazzling light pink oval cut diamond engagement ring set in rose gold.

The elongated structure of an oval cut diamond showcases larger facets in its pavilion than in its round predecessor. Sometimes the size of these facets creates a bow tie effect. Although, its uncommon in an oval-shaped diamond, the darkening effect should not take away from the brilliance of the stone.

When comparing an oval cut and a round cut diamond of the same weight, the oval will appear to be the larger of the two stones. Therefore. If size is what you crave, an oval cut diamond engagement ring will provide the look of a bigger rock for a better price.
