A Face-off Between Round and Oval Diamond

What Distinguishes Them?

Diamonds cut in the brilliant cut style have a lively radiance and a tremendous amount of glimmer. In terms of center stone options for an engagement ring, both have completely rounded edges and excellent face up dimensions compared to other diamond cuts. However, there are some differences between the two that you should take into consideration before making a final decision. As its weight is distributed, an oval's elongated shape gives the impression that it is even larger than it really is, making the sparkle less intense. The weight of a round diamond is evenly distributed throughout the stone, making it a timeless classic. For this reason, the fire and brilliance of a round will be more concentrated.

The shape of an oval can also vary; some are long and slender, while others are wider and more rounded in appearance. If the oval is between 1.3:1 and 1.5:1, then the length-to-width ratio is optimal, and this is what most people aim for. Another reason why an oval engagement ring can be a unique choice is that you can choose the exact shape you want. There are two distinct types of round shapes: those that are symmetrical and those that are not. There are fewer variables to consider when selecting a round center diamond because of the limited variations in how they are cut.

That Which Best Suits You?

Round Brilliant cut diamonds are ideal for those who prefer a more traditional and classic look. For decades, round diamonds have been the industry standard for all other diamond shapes, and they are expected to remain so for years to come. There's no better way to guarantee a diamond's sparkle than by using a precise cutting style like this one. As the radiance and sparkle of this shape will obscure any inclusions or color tint, it is the best for hiding these flaws from view. The price of a round diamond will always be higher than the price of an oval diamond if everything else is equal.

An Oval-Shaped Engagement Ring Made Of Rose Gold

While Ovals are undeniably classy, they are best suited to those who are looking for something a little more out of the ordinary. People with longer hands may want to consider an oval diamond, while people with shorter hands may want to consider this shape to give the illusion of length. Oval diamonds come in a wide variety of cutting styles, so there are many things to consider before purchasing one. Also, oval diamonds are known for their color and inclusions can be more clearly seen because of their more slender facets.

Styles Of Engagement Rings To Fit Every Body Type

The real beauty of these two diamond cuts is that they can be used in almost any style of engagement ring. Side stones, pave settings, and all halo designs complement their soft-edged appearance. Some people prefer solitaire settings for round diamonds because they want to highlight the sparkle of the center stone, while others prefer a pave band For an even more dramatic effect, surround the center of this diamond with an elegant cushion-shaped halo.

When placed on top of a delicate pave band, ovals make the center stone even more noticeable When it comes to oval engagement rings, many customers have fallen in love with the rose gold look and find this subtle metal color to add a nice touch of detail. Halo designs, which has become a huge hit with many, can also be overlooked.

What type of diamond is best for you depends on your personal preferences and what you think looks best on your hand. You should also think about the style of the engagement ring you want to get because the diamond cut you choose for the center stone will be based on that.
