All About The Oval Cut
All About the Oval Cut
Oval cut diamonds are exquisitely captivating. This modified brilliant cut often has more surface area than a round cut diamond of the same weight, making it an easy choice for an engagement ring. The cut is also quite durable. With no sharp edges, the oval cut creates a soft, alluring essence, with the added bonus of making the ring less susceptible to chipping. The length to width ratio is also important to keep in mind as it impacts the gentle shape of the cut. Our recommended range is 1.35-1.50, as this gives you the best proportions for the most delicate appearance.
History of the Oval Cut Diamond
This elegant shape first appeared in 1307 but the oval cut as we know it today was created in 1957 by a Russian diamond cutter by the name of Lazare Kaplan. His techniques, which resulted in a diamond that had significantly more brilliance than its round counterpart, are used to this day in creating these beautiful diamonds. Oval cut diamonds have made quite a name for themselves throughout history as the cut has been used on some extremely famous diamonds, such as the Koh-i-Noor. This stone, which is part of the British Crown Jewels, is also known as the “mountain of light” and is one of the largest cut diamonds in the world.
Why Choose an Oval Cut Ring?
Oval cut engagement rings are a vision of romance with their gleaming light and delicate appearance. Not only is it stunning, but it is a pleasant break from the more traditional round cut stone, making it ideal for the bride who wants to express her individuality with a ring that offers a more unique look. Oval cut diamonds work with any ring style, whether a solitaire, three stone, or halo ring. Often seen on the fingers of celebrities like Blake Lively, Hailey Bieber, and Kirsten Dunst, it is no surprise that the oval cut is one of the most popular diamond cuts in the world today.
