All About Oval Engagement Rings
An oval diamond is unique, beautiful, elegant, and extremely
brilliant. For this reason, it is a
popular choice for a diamond engagement ring. This ring is a nice alternative
to the traditional round stone. Plus,
there are several benefits that come with choosing oval engagement rings. To learn more about the benefits and how to
select the right one, the guide below is a helpful resource.
They Look Larger
Typically, people think of the surface of the diamond when
they think of the size. However, when a diamond
is measured, the entire weight is taken into consideration. The typical round diamond usually has a
smaller surface area than an oval diamond.
Oval diamonds show approximately 10 percent more of their surface when
they are set on a ring. This makes them
appear larger, and it is a good reason to choose this shape of stone for your
ring. You can get a visually larger
stone for less money.
They Make Your Fingers Look Slender
If have thicker fingers, then oval engagement rings are a
great option for you. The elongated
shape of the oval gives the illusion that your fingers are slightly
thinner. Most people like this benefit
when they are looking for a diamond engagement ring.
Length to Width Ratio
When you purchase oval diamonds, you need to evaluate the
length to width ratio. With this ratio,
you can determine how narrow or wide the diamond is. A larger length to width ratio indicates that
the diamond will look longer.
Oval diamonds are more rare than princess cuts and round
cuts. However, they are not as common
either. For this reason, they do not
usually cost more than the other diamond engagement ring options.
The shape of an oval diamond emphasizes the beauty of the
diamond. Many people think this cut
looks more brilliant than other shapes.
Although the round diamond tends to be the most brilliant, the oval
diamond is also very sparkly and brilliant.
This makes it appealing to someone who likes the allure of the round
diamond but also wants to be more unique.
There are a lot of settings that display the oval diamond’s
beauty. Several of the oval engagement
rings are designed to feature one main diamond.
Others have a two diamonds on each side of the larger center stone. Depending on your preferences, there is a lot
of versatility with this stone.
