What is an oval cut diamond? 

Oval diamond cuts are essentially elongated versions of the round brilliant cut, yet their allure extends far beyond mere geometry. Possessing the brilliance reminiscent of round diamonds, oval cuts boast a distinctive and unique shape. This trendy and fashionable diamond cut has the ability to create an appearance of greater size compared to a round diamond. Despite being a relatively recent innovation, emerging in the mid-1900s, the oval cut has swiftly become an enduring and cherished style. Its design is symbolic of enduring relationships, offering a plausible explanation for the widespread popularity of oval cut diamond rings.

Do oval cut diamonds look larger than other types?

Because of the elongated surface area, oval cut diamonds appear larger than round brilliant cuts of the same carat weight. Even when comparing a round and oval diamond of the same carat weight side by side, to the naked eye, the oval diamond looks bigger because it covers more of the finger.

A little History on Oval Cut Engagement Rings

Oval cut diamond was first introduced over 200 years ago. However, the modern oval-cut as we know it today was invented in the 1960’s by expert diamond cutter Lazare Kaplan. Before creating the popular modern oval-cut diamond shape, Kaplan rose to prominence in the diamond industry for his unique ability to split rough diamonds into smaller stones with a single blow. This process is known as “Diamond cleaving”.

With his uncanny cleaving method, Kaplan took stones previously labelled “unworthy” and turned them into beautiful diamond creations. This cut is intended to represent the longevity of your relationship, which might explain the popularity of oval cut diamond rings.
