Oval cut diamonds are stunning diamond shapes, cut for brilliance much like the round brilliant diamond. They have a classic and timeless appeal and look great in many different engagement ring settings.
Oval cut diamonds appear larger than round diamonds of the same carat weight.
Many people assume diamond carat weight equates to the physical size of the diamond, but that’s not quite true. Carat weight is how much the stone weighs, not
It’s true that the size of a stone increases when you go up in carat weight of the same shape, but when comparing different diamond shapes of the same carat weight, it’s not true at all.
Some customers may be perplexed to know that a 1 carat oval solitaire looks much larger than a 1 carat round brilliant engagement ring. That’s because most of the carat weight in a round shape has to be used in the pavilion, known as the bottom. This results in better light performance.
This is one of the advantages elongated shapes have over round brilliant cuts and cushion cut diamonds. But even if you find the oval cut is not your style, we have other elongated shapes that produce the same effect upon request.
Modern oval cut diamonds have a brilliant faceting pattern of 57-58 facets, a feat that rivals the round brilliant cut diamond.
Today, they continue to be a popular choice for various reasons and show no signs of going out of style.
History of Oval Cut Diamonds
The modern oval cut diamond was developed by Lazare Kaplan in the 1960s. He aimed to create a diamond shape that kept the exceptional sparkle of a round diamond while giving it an elongated shape like an emerald cut or marquise cut diamond. The results were stunning.
As a more modern diamond shape, the oval cut diamond hasn’t undergone too much development. Some distinctions may be seen in oval faceting patterns such as more rounded corner facets.
Choice of celebrities
Many celebrities have been seen wearing oval cut engagement rings. Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, Sophie Turner, and Ariana Grande were all known for their stunning oval engagement rings.
Oval cut diamonds are ideal for people wanting a coloured engagement ring.
If you’re someone who wants a different type of engagement ring from the traditional colourless diamond, you should definitely consider an oval cut as your shape.
We offer coloured diamonds and gemstones of both natural and lab created origin. Oval cuts are ideal for these types of stones because of their elongated shape and wide surface area. They can reveal colour easier, allowing hues and intensities to be seen clearly.
How to Pick an Oval Cut Diamond
Choosing a beautiful oval diamond can be a little tricky if you don’t know what to look for. Here are a few tips to consider when choosing your oval cut diamond.
One of the disadvantages oval cut diamonds have is their loose guidelines on cut quality. Round cut diamonds have strict parameters, but oval cut diamonds and other fancy shapes have a range of proportions that are considered acceptable.
Not every oval cut diamond looks the same. Some oval cut diamonds will seem wider and others more narrow and thin. Our team is able to show you different oval diamonds with different length to width ratios to give you an idea of what you might like.
While oval diamonds may be ideal for coloured stones, you may want to choose a high colour grade for it. Much like other elongated shapes with wide surface area, yellow tint in an oval cut diamond may be more obvious than other shapes.
Fortunately, the faceting style of an oval cut mimics the round brilliant. It is cut for brilliance and reflecting white light to counteract yellow tint.
We’re able to show you oval diamonds in a range of colour grades and clarities to give you an idea of what might be good for your engagement ring and budget.
