Oval cut diamonds have a sparkling, brilliant facet pattern and an elongated silhouette. Developed by Lazare Kaplan in the 1960s, the oval cut diamond is a hybrid of the round brilliant and marquise shapes. 3.2% of all Ritani diamonds sold are oval cut. They are a stunning choice for those who love sparkle but are looking for a slightly more unusual style.
Oval diamonds have become increasingly popular in recent years for engagement rings. Stars who have worn the oval cut diamond include Blake Lively and Hailey Bieber.
Oval diamonds are also a great choice for custom jewelry, such as pendants and earrings. There are some benefits to oval diamonds: they create the appearance of a longer, slimmer finger when worn in an engagement ring, and they also appear bigger than they really are due to their larger surface area. To make your oval diamond appear larger, choose a halo setting. Or let your oval diamond stand out in a solitaire setting.
Oval diamonds will come in varying length to width ratios. They tend to look the most appealing between 1.30-1.50. An oval with a length to width ratio of 1.30 will appear rounder, while an oval with a length to width ratio of 1.50 will appear more slender and elongated.
