Ideal choice for something more unique

The Oval Shape diamond has a beautiful brilliance very similar to a Round Brilliant Cut because the faceting and proportions are almost the same, except that this shape is an elliptical variation. The Oval Cut was designed by Lazare Kaplan in the early 1960s and has 56 to 58 facets. Generally speaking, Oval Shape diamonds are less popular than the Round Brilliant and Princess Cut. Because this shape has a fire and brilliance close to that of a Round Brilliant Cut, the Oval Cut is the ideal choice if you like the look of a round stone but would prefer to have something more unique.

Makes fingers look more slender

Oval Diamond Sketch

The Oval Shape diamond works especially well in rings, and would make for a unique engagement ring as most of the engagement rings have a Round Cut or Princess Cut. The elongated shape of an Oval Cut diamond has the unique effect of creating a flattering illusion lengthening the hand, accentuating long and slender fingers. This shape has the added benefit of appearing larger than a Round Cut diamond. The average 1 carat Oval diamond has a 10% larger surface area than a 1 carat Round diamond. This means you can get a diamond that looks larger, with almost the same brilliance as a Round Cut for a much lower price.

The bow-tie effect

When picking out Oval Shape diamonds make sure that you inspect the degree to which it has a bow-tie effect. This is an effect that occurs because some of the light at the center of the diamond does not bounce back. Many diamond experts agree that this is part of the beauty of an Oval Shape diamond, however, the effect should not be dominant or the first thing you see when looking at the diamond. The degree of the bow-tie effect is not stated on a diamond certificate so the only way to assess it is through a visual inspection. Before you purchase an Oval Shape diamond, make sure you have a good photograph of it so that you can easily gauge the bow-tie effect yourself.
