Oval cut diamonds and gemstones have many benefits. They look much larger than their actual carat weight due to their elongated shape, allowing them to cover more surface than a  traditional round cut diamond.

An oval cut diamond will also cost less than other diamonds so that it will fit more easily into your budget than other traditional diamonds. So not only can you spend less on your ring, but you do not have to compromise on the carat weight as you would with other stones.

Oval diamonds are also in less demand than round cut diamonds, making them rarer than other diamond engagement rings. This is perfect if you want a unique ring, different from the engagement ring everyone else seems to be wearing.

The best part is that oval cut diamonds offer the same brilliance as round cut diamonds, lighting up a room with fire and sparkle. So, they are cost-effective, rare, and brilliant; what more could you want from an engagement ring stone?

Some great settings could be paired with an oval diamond; here are some of our favorites:
