Those who love the fire and brilliance which round brilliant diamond possesses but want to choose different shape than this traditional diamond, oval diamond is the answer. This shape is still young in age, since it was developed as the elliptical variation of round brilliant diamond in the late 1950s and early 1960s by Lazare Kaplan. It is a very versatile and elegant shape of diamond, which lies between the traditional round brilliant diamond and fancy marquise diamond. Oval Diamond Ring

The benefit you can get from choosing an oval diamond ring is not only having a different shape than traditional one and the fire and brilliance of the stone. Since oval diamond has an elongated shape, it has an illusion of bigger diamond than its actual size, so that, for those with a tight budget, they can buy an expensive looking diamond ring at a lower price. Those whose small fingers can make their fingers look slender by wearing an oval diamond ring. Moreover, since it is oval and does not have any pointed edges, it will be a better choice for those with busy and active life. Oval Diamond Ring

If you are looking for a perfect oval diamond for your diamond ring, you should understand about the length and width ratio. The best oval diamond will have a length to width ration between 1.3 and 1.6, while the length to width ratio of 1.3 and les will look slightly rounded and the length to width ratio of 1.6 will look more oblong. It is up to you to choose one of your likings. Oval Diamond Ring

Oval diamond will look beautiful in many settings available, but few of them will make oval diamond truly stands out. Particularly, oval diamond will look the best in prong and channel setting. If you want an extraordinary look, try to have a fancy halo diamond rings. A halo with pave-set accent diamonds will makes the oval diamond, as the main stone, looks much bigger. Or, you can have an oval halo setting with a split shank band. A great option for active people is to have the oval diamond set sideways in which the length is parallel to the band. But those who want all of the focus fall on the oval diamond, just simply choose a solitaire setting with a slim band.

Oval diamond looks stunning and lovely as centre stones, but it does not mean it will not look the same as the accent stones. You can creatively custom the design of your diamond ring by having oval diamonds in bezel set on the band of the ring. You can create an unusual halo of oval diamonds as well. However, it is recommended not to choose round brilliant diamonds as side stones, when you want to combine an oval diamond with other shapes of diamond as the side stones, since the brilliance and fire of the round brilliant diamonds will steal the beauty of the oval diamonds.

One thing you should keep in mind, like other fancy shapes, oval diamond will have a tendency for bow tie effect. This flaw will decrease the brilliance and clarity of oval diamond, and this flaw will not be mentioned in the certificate. But, fortunately, bow tie effect can be detected even with unaided eye. It will be wise to have your oval diamond examined by the expert.
