Oval Shape

Oval-shaped diamonds were introduced some 200 years ago, with the modern version of the cut being invented in the early 1960s by Lazare Kaplan. The oval is an elongated, symmetrical, round cut diamond.

The 58 facets of the oval cut capture the same brilliance and allure of a round brilliant cut, with the added elegance of its elongated shape. Oval cuts appear larger than round cuts, making them a sophisticated alternative for a wide variety of uses including engagement rings, pendants, earrings and many other forms of jewellery.

All oval cuts have some trace of a dark discoloration in the middle of the diamond, called a ‘bow tie’. As this name suggests, this pattern resembles a bow tie and its intensity could be directly linked with a poor cut. It is recommended to keep this characteristic to a minimum to ensure the quality of your diamond.

Oval cut diamond engagement rings offer the scintillation and brilliance of the round brilliant cut, with a larger and longer look. They are feminine, elegant and flow down the finger. They are ideal when matched with side stones and for use in halo and trilogy style engagement rings.
