So you’ve finally decided on a Diamond cut for your engagement ring! The oval cut diamond has all the sparkle and glisten of a round brilliant cut diamond but an added bonus is its elongated shape. This shape is very flattering on the hand and gives the fingers some length. Now all you have to do is find the perfect setting to house your diamond. Oval cut diamonds generally work in all engagement ring settings.
The solitaire is quite possibly the most popular setting for oval cut diamonds. This style of engagement ring is a popular choice amongst celebrities as well. The reason this cut diamond and solitaire setting work so well together is the fact that this setting purely just shows the diamond off in all its glory. If you’re looking for some colour, Rose gold is a beautiful combination with this particular cut diamond
And if you’re looking for something a little different opt for an Oval cut morganite paired with a rose gold setting, so elegant and perfect.
A halo setting is another option that has become increasingly more popular just like the engagement ring worn by Princess Diana and Kate Middleton. The surrounding diamonds of a halo setting really amplify the fire and brilliance of the diamond. The halo also gives the impression of a larger diamond over all. Again if you are looking for a pop of colour go for a halo of gemstones as oppose to diamonds, rubies and sapphires are perfect for that.
Side Stone engagement ring are again a lovely option when it comes to these diamonds. Again a popular choice with Celebrities, like Blake Lively. A side stone setting adds a perfect amount of sparkle to the ring while enhancing the over effect of the Oval cut diamond.
The oval cut actually didn’t come around until the 1960s, so it may seem a little strange when you see it in an Antique setting. Many Antique inspired settings that are set with oval cuts just work perfectly. The elongated shape and symmetry an Edwardian style setting a beautiful elegance and grace to a more modern oval cut stone. An Art Deco setting is a more intricate designed ring that just works beautifully with the oval cut diamond.
