Oval cut diamonds is a diamond that is categorized in the Modified Brilliant Cut category like the Marquise diamond (Fancy Diamond Prices List). The oval cut diamonds will have 58 facets and can be found having 4, 6 or 8 pavilion main facets. These diamonds were first designed in the early 1960s by Lazare Kaplan and are at par with round diamonds in terms of fire and brilliance. If you are looking for a stone that has a unique shape and the brilliance of a round diamond, then oval cut diamonds are you best bet. As these diamonds have an elongated shape, they can look bigger than they actually are. If you have long fingers, opting for a ring with oval diamonds will be a very good option. Generally, the oval diamonds will have a length to width ratio that ranges between 1.33 and 1.66.

As oval diamonds do not have any sharp edges, the possibility of chipping or any damage to the stone is very unlikely. Some of the popular ring settings in which oval diamonds are used are listed below.

Prong setting

An oval cut diamond with a 6-prong setting will enhance the beauty of the stone while providing safety to it.

Bezel Setting

If you want maximum safety for your stone, then bezel setting will be a very good option. In a bezel setting, the entire outer boundary of the diamond is covered and this provides very good safety. If you are planning to wear the ring daily, then this setting is the best option for you.

Side Stone Setting

Oval cut diamonds can also be used in a side stone setting. These stones can look beautiful along with accent stones such as rubies, emeralds and tanzanite. Diamond and ruby rings are very popular in which the red ruby stone is paired with many oval cut diamonds. You can also pair, a centre oval stone with smaller oval diamonds in side stone setting.
