Oozing sophistication and old-school glamour, the oval cut diamond is making waves in the jewellery world. With celebrities such as Blake Lively, Hailey Baldwin and Katie Holmes all sporting oval sparklers, they offer amazing brilliance with an eye-catching, finger flattering shape.
Oval Cut: The Most Flattering Shape:
An oval cut diamond is an elongated version of the traditional round brilliant cut. It has the same number of facets, meaning that it is exceptionally sparkly and brilliant but has a longer shape.
Ovals are perfect for those looking to stand out from the crowd. It combines a long soft curved shape for something different, with the exquisite fire and scintillation that the round brilliant cut diamond is famous for.
For those looking to maximise carat size for their budget, the oval is ideal. Oval cut diamonds may appear larger, as the table size is around 10% larger than a round brilliant cut diamond of the same carat weight.
Ovals are also great for those concerned about shorter fingers or wider hands as its shape elongates fingers making it universally flattering.
A Celebrity Favourite:
Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey Baldwin with a breathtaking 10ct oval cut diamond on a fine gold band. Blake Lively started the trend in 2012 with her stunning 12 carat pink oval diamond ring with rose gold split band design

Simple and classic, the solitaire design is a great choice to set an oval cut diamond. The contrast between the long shape of the oval diamond and a fine band gives a stunning look.
One of the most popular designs of the moment is setting the oval diamond with a fine band of diamonds. To add an extra element of glamour, diamonds look stunning set in rose gold for an extra feminine touch.
Accenting the centre diamond with a halo of small diamonds is great way to enhance size. This design looks striking when all diamonds are set in the same metal colour resulting in a seamless look so as to make the centre diamond appear larger.
