Oval Engagement Rings

Romantic and feminine, oval engagement rings are a favorite amongst modern brides. Featuring elongated shapes and a variety of settings, oval engagement rings are the perfect sparkling addition to celebrate your engagement. 

What is an Oval Engagement Ring?

By definition, an oval engagement ring is a ring that incorporates an oval-cut diamond or perhaps gemstones such as a ruby or sapphire. A true oval-cut stone may be incorporated into any ring setting such as solitaire or three-stone. 

Created in 1957 by Lazare Kaplan, the modern oval cut exhibits the sparkle of a round brilliant cut, but features a more distinctive and elongated shape. The shape of an oval wedding ring can often make the diamond appear larger, which makes it very appealing. 

How to Select an Oval Engagement Ring?

An oval cut diamond engagement ring is truly unique. This means that some oval rings are long and thin, others may be wide and round and some may even have pointy or flat ends.  To select the perfect oval diamond engagement ring, you need to choose the stone that best matches your individual taste and of course finger shape.  

How Much Should I Spend on an Engagement Ring?

There are different schools of thought when it comes to how much one should spend on an engagement ring. Some suggest two months salary while others recommend paying what you can afford. What you should spend is completely personal.
