The oval shape is associated with different meanings. The oval can be considered to signify the beginning of a new life for the couple. Of course, the meaning behind it is what you make it, that’s what makes it so special!
Due to the fact that the round shape is still the most popular, they tend to be more expensive than oval rings. Oval cuts tend to be 30% less expensive than a round-cut diamond. However, overall the price will also depend on the setting and type of gemstone or diamond used.
Oval rings are quite a popular shape due to their uniqueness in comparison to round-shaped stones. The design overall of the ring is what determines its ‘trendiness’ such as features like the type of band used, or the setting around the center stone.
Oval rings are sought after because they suit a variety of gemstones, but also because they can be set in unique ways ultimately creating a one-of-a-kind ring. They also tend to look bigger and so are a great way to maximize size without having to increase carats. They are also less expensive than round cuts but still have brilliance and sparkle to them.
This depends on an individual’s taste if you are more interested in maximizing sparkle or have a very specific vision for the color of your diamond. Overall, the type of diamond used and its cut will affect the overall appearance. One important factor about oval shapes is that they allow inclusions to be obscured so there is less concern about the gemstones’ clarity.
