Oval Cut Engagement Rings
With soft rounded edges and an elongated shape, oval cut engagement rings are a well-liked alternative to the classic round diamond ring. Cut and clarity are important to keep in mind when choosing an oval diamond, and depending on how deep your diamond is cut, it may appear larger or smaller.
Similar to pear or marquise cut diamond rings, an oval diamond ring will also help make the wearer’s finger seem more slender, especially when set in a classic solitaire design. Halo rings also suit this shape by delicately enclosing your centre stone in a glittering surround of round micro-set diamonds.
If you wish to reveal your oval cut diamond in a mesmerising surround, best choose an engagement ring metal that will intensify its clarity and sparkle. White gold or platinum rings are a great option as they will both reflect and intensify scintillation. But if you like the contrast of colour, best opt for a yellow gold or rose gold setting.
