Oval Cut Diamonds

 Relatively young as far as diamond cuts go, oval cut diamonds were developed in the 1960s by Lazare Kaplan. Oval cut diamonds are classified as a modified brilliant cut, because they have a similar faceting pattern to round diamonds. Oval cuts are an excellent choice for people with small hands or short fingers, because their elongated shape has a slimming effect.

Oval cut diamonds have slightly fewer facets than round cuts, coming in at 56 compared to a round brilliant’s 58. An oval cut diamond can appear vintage or modern, depending on its styling. Oval cut diamond rings with a pavé diamond halo will have an antique look, whereas an oval diamond in a bypass setting is better for contemporary styles.
