How to stack oval engagement ring?

Oval engagement rings look amazing with many different types of wedding bands and stacking rings. Opt for thin rings (under 2mm), so you can stack more rings on your finger. Curved rings are a popular stacking choice because they create a distinct look and will peek out from underneath your engagement ring. 

Are oval engagement rings more expensive?

The cost of your oval engagement ring will depend on many factors, such as the size and quality of the diamond. However, oval engagement rings are much less expensive than round-cut diamonds (the most popular diamond shape) and can also help you save money since they look larger than other diamonds of the same carat weight. 

Should I get an oval or round engagement ring?

It’s all about personal preference. Round-cut diamonds are more sparkly, but they are also much more expensive. If you are looking to save on your ring, choose an oval diamond. However, round-cut diamonds have been a classic engagement ring choice for decades, while oval-cut diamond rings are a newer trend. 

Are oval diamonds less sparkly?

When it comes to sparkle, round-cut diamonds are #1, but oval-cut diamonds are still high up there - they are still very sparkly. If you want to add even more sparkle to your oval diamond ring, choose a halo setting, which will surround the center stone with tiny round-cut diamonds.

Do oval engagement rings look bigger?

Yes! This elongated diamond shape has a large surface area, which makes them appear larger than diamonds of the same carat weight.

How much is a 2 carat oval diamond engagement ring?

A 2-carat oval cut diamond alone can cost you anywhere from $5,000 to $35,000 or more, depending on the stone’s quality. The setting, depending on its materials and how ornate it is, can cost anywhere from $300 to $5,000. If you want to spend less on your ring, we recommend choosing a lab-grown diamond instead.
