The elongated shape of the Oval Cut offers a sophisticated beauty to an engagement ring. Oval cut diamonds look beautiful in a variety of ring settings, including classic solitaire settings and halo settings. An Oval Cut engagement ring is ideal for those who appreciate a rounded design, but want something unique.
The slender shape of the oval makes the stone appear larger than other shapes of the same carat weight. With no sharp edges, the diamond is also less prone to chipping.
When designing an oval cut engagement ring, look for a diamond that is cut well. Without specific cut grades given by the GIA, you should review each stone individually. Look for an oval with a length to width ratio between 1.30-1.50. Review our full oval cut guide for more tips.
In general, the best settings for oval cut diamond engagement rings are halo, solitaire and pave. These styles allow the oval diamond to take center stage while adding character to the ring.
