Frequently asked questions forOval Engagement Rings

Thanks to its superior finger coverage and unparalleled sparkle, when it comes to pairing your oval engagement ring with a wedding band the sky really is the limit. Equally at home nestled snugly alongside a wedding band that slopes softly inward (like our Staccato band) as it is sitting pretty against a shining thin minimalistic band (i.e. The Skinny Round), or even mixed and matched with various diamond shapes (hello, Marquise Paisley), the classic oval never disappoints.

One of our favorite ways to pair oval engagement rings is by stacking them. Play with texture by layering your sleek and smooth oval engagement ring with wedding bands that incorporate fun twists or unique ridges to add more stylish depth and character to your look. Or, blaze with bling by incorporating infinity bands of different carat sizes.

No matter what you choose, your oval engagement ring will look stunning paired with a wide variety of wedding bands. Whether you prefer a sleek and minimalist band or a bold and sparkling stack, there are endless possibilities for creating a beautiful and personalized combination. The key is to find a wedding band that complements the shape and style of your oval engagement ring while reflecting your own unique taste and personality.

In general, an oval shaped diamond is 25% more affordable than a comparable round diamond. This is because the oval shape is more elongated and tends to retain more of the original rough diamond during the cutting process, resulting in less wastage and a lower cost per carat. However, outside of shape, there are a variety of factors that influence the price of both diamonds and engagement rings.

Most prominently, a diamond's 4Cs or cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, can drastically increase (or decrease) the price of a diamond. For example, a high-quality oval diamond with excellent cut, color, clarity, and carat weight can be more valuable and expensive than a lower-quality round diamond. Outside of the 4Cs, other factors such as market demand, diamond fluorescence, and individual retailer pricing strategies can also impact the cost of both oval, round, and fancy shape diamonds.

Additionally, a natural diamond will always be more expensive than a lab grown diamond. This is because of the supply chain and the number of hands a natural diamond must pass through before ending up on your finger.

When considering the price of an engagement ring, it's important to remember that factors beyond the diamond itself can affect the cost. The type of metal, such as platinum or gold, the amount of additional embellishments, and the intricacy of the setting can all influence the overall price. Being aware of these factors can help you make an informed decision while staying within your desired budget.

Year after year, the allure of oval engagement rings continues to captivate brides-to-be, solidifying their position as one of the most popular diamond shapes in the world of fine jewelry. And really, who can blame them? The oval shaped engagement ring possesses a mesmerizing combination of elegance, uniqueness, and versatility that simply can't be beat.

One of the primary reasons for the sustained popularity of oval engagement rings lies in their ability to offer a distinct and timeless aesthetic. The elongated shape of the diamond creates a sense of grace and sophistication, while also providing a contemporary twist compared to the more traditional round or princess cuts. It's a perfect balance that resonates with modern brides who seek something classic yet distinctive.

But it's not just about aesthetics. Oval engagement rings also have practical benefits. The elongated shape creates an illusion of longer fingers, making them an attractive choice for those who desire a more elegant and elongated appearance. This quality not only adds to the visual appeal of the ring but also enhances the overall allure of the wearer.Another factor that contributes to the popularity of oval engagement rings is their versatility. They can be set in a variety of styles, from sleek and minimalist solitaires to vintage-inspired settings adorned with intricate details, maximalist bezels, and more. Additionally, oval diamonds can be paired with a wide range of wedding bands, allowing for personalization and customization to suit individual preferences and styles.

The popularity of oval engagement rings is further accentuated by their embrace by celebrities. Hailey Bieber, among others, chose an oval shaped engagement ring to mark her nuptials, adding to the allure and trendiness of this diamond shape and cementing it as an engagement ring style that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

When it comes to selecting a diamond shape for your engagement ring you really can't go wrong with an oval cut diamond, darling. Oval diamonds are the fashion chameleons of the diamond world-effortlessly transitioning outfits from classic to contemporary with the simple twist of a ring on your finger.

A stunning oval diamond perched on your finger, will easily catch the light and cast little rainbows all around. It's like having your own personal disco ball, but way classier. Oval diamonds boast a remarkable brilliance that can rival their round counterparts, and their elongated shape creates an illusion of length and grace. But with added length comes added responsibility and you'll have to keep and eye out of the dreaded bowtie. Not a fashion accessory, a bowtie is a dark shadow in the shape of a bowtie that stretches across an ovals face. Thanks to the long shape of the diamond, every oval will have a bowtie but it is possible to find ovals with diminished or smaller bowties. That's why its so important to shop for your oval engagement ring in person as you can personally assess the diamond for its in-person appearance. Luckily, as with most other cuts and stones, the bowtie effect often adds unique charm to the stunning oval shape, resulting in a perfect diamond choice for any engagement ring.

First things first, let's start with the foundation. Choose a band that complements the shape and style of your oval engagement ring. Opt for a thin and delicate band to keep the focus on the main attraction or go for a diamond-studded one to add extra sparkle. If you're feeling adventurous, mix metals for a trendy two-tone effect.

Now, it's time to play matchmaker. Look for rings that have a similar aesthetic or complement the shape of your oval engagement ring. Curved bands are a dreamy match as they gracefully wrap around the contours of the oval diamond, creating a harmonious and fluid look. Consider a wedding band or stackable rings with pavé or channel-set diamonds for a touch of extra sparkle. To elevate the stack, try adding contrast. Play with different textures, gemstones, or shapes. A vintage-inspired ring with intricate detailing can add a touch of old-world charm. Alternatively, a sleek and modern band in a geometric shape can create a striking contrast against the oval engagement ring. Remember, it's all about creating a unique and personalized stack that reflects your style and personality.

If you're the type who loves variety, don't be afraid to experiment. Mix and match different metals, try asymmetrical stacks, or add a statement ring for a bold touch. Stacking rings allow for endless creativity and the freedom to change up your look whenever you desire. Ultimately, stacking an oval engagement ring is like curating your own jewelry masterpiece. Consider the shape, style, and aesthetic of each ring, experiment with different combinations, and embrace your inner sparkly artist. There are no rules, only endless possibilities to create a stack that is uniquely yours.

Let’s be real, with an oval cut diamond, any engagement ring setting will look fabulous. But, if you’re looking for inspiration, then we have a few ideas…namely in the Frank Darling form of solitaires, bezels, and three stone settings.

Let’s start with the classic solitaire. This timeless design allows the oval cut to take center stage by emphasizing its elongated shape and brilliant sparkle without any added bling along the band. Perfect for minimalists, a six-prong or four-prong setting securely holds the diamond and allows it to take its rightful place in the limelight.

Prefer a touch of vintage glamor? Consider a halo setting. Featuring a halo of smaller diamonds that surround your oval gem, a halo setting will amplify your oval diamond's brilliance and create a breathtaking display of sparkle. If you love the idea of a halo setting but prefer something a bit more understated than consider the hidden halo. Like a normal halo setting, hidden halos surround your oval cut diamond. The difference between the two lies in the fact that a hidden halo is 'hidden' and usually can only be seen from the side as opposed to face-up like the usual halo.

If you consider yourself a maximizer of modern styles, a bezel setting is perfect for you. Unlike other settings that secure the oval diamond via prongs to display its sides, bezel settings surround the entire perimeter of your oval diamond completely. The result is a super secure and contemporary look, perfect for those who lead more active lifestyles or are simply looking to up their glam.

Those who love the architectural elegance and breathtaking glint of diamonds will love a three-stone setting. Here, two smaller side stones flank your oval diamond. While there are many beliefs about the symbolism behind a three stone engagement ring, the most common belief is that it symbolizes the past, present, and future. Whatever the symbolism, an oval three stone engagement ring creates a stunning visual balance while adding extra sparkle and significance to your engagement ring.

Just remember that the world of setting options for your oval engagement ring is vast and wondrous (and sometimes feels truly endless). Whether you prefer a classic solitaire, a halo of sparkling diamonds, a sleek bezel, a symbolic three-stone design, or even a stunning split-shank, each setting promises to enhance the beauty of your oval diamond in its own unique way. Ultimately, you simply should trust your heart and choose the setting that resonates with your personal style and captures the essence of your love story.
