If you’re looking for a gorgeous, sparkling diamond ring that has a classic look with a modern twist, then an oval cut diamond engagement ring is a great choice for you. Oval cut diamonds have taken center stage in a big way. These fancy shaped diamonds have been spotted everywhere in the last several years including on the hands of many celebrities such as Hailey Bieber, Bachelorette Joelle (Jojo) Fletcher, and Blake Lively.

It’s clear to see why these stones have taken center stage; oval cut diamonds are stunning and brilliant cut stones that really showcase the stone’s sparkle. Whether you’ve already decided on an oval cut diamond engagement ring or you’re just becoming familiar, there’s a lot to learn when it comes to diamonds.

What is an oval cut diamond?

Oval cut diamonds are classic and radiant, yet they don’t compromise any sparkle. Their brilliant cut is timeless and similar to a round cut diamond however their elongated shape compliments and takes up more space on the finger. Brilliant cut diamonds have the most sparkle out of any diamonds because of their many facets. The 58 facets on an oval cut diamond allow light to “sparkle” and reflect in the most stunning way. Oval cut diamonds capture the same allure of a round cut diamond but with the added elegance of an elongated shape. This elongated shape makes them appear larger than round cut diamonds which makes them a competitive alternative.

How diamonds became oval cut

Oval cut diamonds have been created for many years however, the modern oval cut diamond wasn’t created until 1957 when a Russian-born diamond cutter named Lazare Kaplan invented it. Kaplan was born into a family of jewelers and worked closely with his uncle growing up. He was known for his amazing cleaving skills but did not become widely recognized until he designed the modern oval cut diamond.

How to select an oval cut diamond

The first, most important step when choosing your oval cut diamond is to establish your budget. When looking at the 4 C’s: Color, Cut, Clarity, and Carat Weight, we believe that you should choose the C that is most important to you. Start by ranking the most important C to the least important C. We believe this choice is completely personal and that there is no correct answer. That being said, we do have have a few suggestions.

Ovals are brilliant cut diamonds giving them a beautiful sparkle. Oval cut diamonds will usually appear larger in size than a round cut diamond of the same carat weight. This means that a 1 carat oval will appear larger on the hand than a 1 carat round.

Let’s discuss diamond Color as this is also a personal preference. Oval cut diamonds tend to hold on to warmth more than other diamond shapes, making color something we recommend paying attention to! We recommend staying be D-G color diamonds if you are sensitive to color. Diamonds H color and below can save you money but will show some warmth.

Another important factor when choosing your oval cut diamond is the length to width ratio. The length to width ratio measures the overall shape of an oval cut diamond. The typical range is a ratio between 1.3-1.6. A length to width ratio of 1.3 will appear shorter, where as a length to width ratio of 1.6 will appear elongated. This is important to consider because different shaped oval will compliment different shaped hands and fingers. This is also important to consider when you are deciding how you want your oval cut diamond engagement ring to look and stack with wedding bands.

Lastly when choosing your oval cut diamond we suggest selecting a diamond that is eye clean and has inclusions toward the outside of the diamond rather than in the center. Tiny inclusions are hidden well in oval cut diamonds due to all of the facets.
