After all, you can’t just squeeze an oval into any old round setting and call it a day. An oval diamond is kind. It is smart. It is…well, it’s the wrong quote. But you get it. Ovals are unique and deserving of a ring setting designed just for them. So let’s look at some options.

Whether you treated yourself with a sparkly lil something because self-care or it’s a symbol of your partner’s endless devotion, that rock on your finger deserves a setting that will keep it safe and sound for, well, ever.
