An oval engagement ring features an oval-shaped lab grown diamond or gemstone as the center and can be set in various settings. Oval-cut rings are popular for engagements due to their versatile, elegant, classic shape. Due to its elongated design, ovals complement various hand shapes and finger sizes, making this a safe (and stunning) choice for your beloved.
What Shape Is an Oval Cut Engagement Ring?
Oval engagement rings are similar to a round cut in that they have a symmetrical shape, but the body is elongated rather than circular. The oval cut can vary in length-to-width ratio, with some oval cuts appearing more elongated and others appearing more rounded. Their unique shape displays a brilliant cut faceting style that produces high sparkle and brightness. An oval-cut engagement ring is a popular choice because it can create the illusion of a larger stone and has a unique, elegant shape.

Do Oval Cut Diamonds Chip Easily?
If you are concerned about chipping an engagement ring, avoiding stone cuts and shapes with points or sharp corners and edges is best. Thanks to the oval and round edges of oval cut stones, they are far harder to chip or damage due to the lack of sharp edges or corners. It's also important to remember to remove rings when engaging in activities that could damage or compromise the ring's integrity, such as heavy manual labor or sports.
