If you like the brilliance of a modern round shape diamond and the length of a marquise shaped diamond, the oval cut is the one for you. The stone is highly versatile and elegant for use in engagement rings. Another bonus of the cut, is its ability to elongate shorter fingers, which is what most brides to be crave. This sophisticated diamond looks great set singularly on a band, with accenting diamonds or with a halo of small diamonds bordering the oval shape. When it comes to quality, length to width ratio is important, as you don’t want the diamond to appear more rounded then oval. Oval diamonds with a length to width ration of 1.3 or less will be slightly rounded, whilst a ratio of 1.6 provides a more oblong, desirable look.
