What Makes Diamond Oval Rings the Best Choice for Engagements?

Here are a few reasons why an oval diamond solitaire engagement ring is the best ring choice for your better half.

Unique Yet Traditional

Diamonds come in various cuts, shapes, and sizes, which is why it often becomes challenging to make the best choice. Round and princess diamond cuts are stunning traditional cuts that are quite popular. In fact, they are a bit too popular, causing them to lose their uniqueness. On the other hand, an oval-cut diamond is a brilliantly unique stone that is guaranteed to catch people’s attention. This traditional diamond cut is a forever classic and classy choice that appeals to those looking for a bit of variety.

Oval cut diamonds are more original than round cut ones and are surprisingly more affordable. A solitaire oval engagement ring is the best choice for budget-conscious shoppers looking to get a bang for their buck! An oval diamond engagement ring brings more sparkle and weight in comparison to its price and many other diamond cuts.
The fact is that the elongated oval shape of the diamond tricks the eye into seeing more. Therefore, an oval diamond set in an engagement rings appears much bigger than a round diamond that weighs the same.

They Have a Unique Bow-Tie Formation

One factor that sets an oval-cut diamond apart from other diamond shapes is the visible bow-tie formation within the stone. This effect is created because the light doesn’t bounce back and forth in the center of the oval because of the way the diamond is cut. Every seasoned jeweler knows that the bow-tie effect is one of the main aspects that makes an oval shaped diamond beautiful and unique.

However, you need to be careful when choosing the setting of the oval diamond to maintain its uniqueness. Even though an oval cut diamond pairs well with most settings, the wrong setting can end up overpowering and outshining the center stone. An oval diamond looks stunning in a halo setting, a prong setting, or a bezel setting. To view our selection of popular oval engagement rings with halos click here.
