The Diamond Info The oval cut diamond is basically a modified version of the round brilliant cut diamond, as the two shaped poses a similar fire and brilliance. The cut was created in the 1960’s by Lazare Kaplan, the only difference is its elongated shape, which has the advantage of looking like a bigger size.

What We Recommend
With the oval cut diamond length to with ration is very important, and ideally should be about 1.5:1. The diamond its self is affected by several different elements which can have a big impact of the brilliance. Things like symmetry, width, depth and the diamonds cut all need to be considered to get the best out of the diamond. Diamond clarity – the amount of blemishes or inclusions interfering with the light travelling through will also affect the brilliance of the stone and its sparkle. You may have heard of the bow-tie affect – where the stone can have a shadow across the centre in the shape of a bow-tie. The oval shaped diamond is prone to this so there for needs a excellent cut to avoid the effect.
