Why Buy an Oval Diamond Engagement Ring? 

Have your heart set on an oval engagement ring? Here are a few reasons why you should consider buying this unique and timeless piece of jewellery.

The Oval Cut Elongates Your Finger

An oval diamond naturally gives the illusion of a longer and slimmer finger, oozing elegance and giving the impression of a larger carat weight than other shapes. Before you settle on the perfect oval diamond for your engagement ring, try various sizes of oval diamonds to find a diamond with the right ratio and see how well it looks next to the ring finger.

Bigger Circumference for Carat Weight 

Oval diamonds have a lot in common with round diamonds regarding their brilliance and the way they sparkle. 

What makes ovals different from a round cut is their naturally elongated shape, which is more prominent on your finger. Despite round and oval diamonds having identical carat weights, the oval naturally takes up more space on an engagement ring on the circumference and less in the depth of the diamond, this means that though both shapes weigh the same, the oval will look larger from the face-up view as it has a wider spread circumference due to its elongated shape compared with a round cut, and usually is a better price too.

Oval Diamonds are Available in Both Natural and Lab Grown Versions 

You have the option to choose a natural oval Diamond or lab grown oval diamond engagement ring. So, if you’re searching for an ethically sourced diamond, why not consider a lab grown diamond for your proposal? Our collection of oval diamond engagement rings can allow you to create a proposal that reflects your love story for a great price.
