Are oval diamond rings more expensive or better value?
Why oval diamond rings are a winning design
Get an engagement ring that catches the eye and captures the heart, think oval diamond rings. It’s a way to show you are determined to walk into the sunset with a happy future ahead of you.
The oval shape is unusual enough to draw attention but not overpower or shock.
It’s no wonder that the appeal of an oval diamond has only grown over the years. You get the true brilliance of the round diamond yet it comes in a truly unique shape and style.
The smoothness and the symmetry give your engagement ring a special sophistication.
There are other benefits to choosing an oval cut diamond ring and you can see why this cut has magic all its own.
Going over the oval diamond advantages
Oval diamonds have a special advantage over other diamond shapes. They can appear to be larger in size than round or even some square diamonds because of their elongated shape. This means your oval diamond ring can look bigger than other diamonds of the same weight.
The extended ends of the oval and weight distribution of the stone mean you have a larger looking diamond for less cost.
The beauty of an oval diamond is the fact you are getting a more affordable diamond with a unique shaping and the bonus that the diamond appears larger than it is.
Will oval diamond rings go out of fashion?
There is always a concern that any special shape or cut of diamond might go off trend or completely out of fashion.
You don’t want an engagement ring that looks like it was following a wave but that whole style now looks out of date somehow.
Talking to a trusted jeweler is the key to having the perfect diamond engagement ring for you and no one else.
An experienced jeweler who is easy to talk to and not trying to push you in any direction can be hard to find, but they are worth their weight in gold.
The answer to the question ‘Will oval diamond rings go out of fashion?’ is No.
Remember, whatever diamond shape you choose, it is the setting that’s an all-important element especially in an engagement ring.
Adding some flair to your finger
There is something comforting in going for a traditional and even classic choice in your diamond engagement ring.
If you are ever unsure which way to go in choosing an engagement ring, then it is probably best to go with the safety of a solitaire diamond cut ring. If you have a bit more to your style and personality that you want to show, then the flair of an oval cut diamond ring can do it.
Here is your chance to have an engagement ring that gives you an individual look and can be set in a way that adds to the shape and size of the diamond.
Get set for the value of an oval diamond
Whilst it is true that the size of a diamond and the brilliance of the stone is integral to the overall look of your diamond ring, the setting is a crucial component to the end result.
The bonus of an oval cut diamond is that it appears larger and even lengthens the finger of the one lucky enough to wear it.
With the added value of having a heightened stylishness, the oval cut diamond is not a passing fad. Even though diamonds have been cut in many ways over the last few hundred years, it was the Russian-born diamond cutter, Lazare Kaplan who invented the modern-day oval cut in 1957.
The cut has grown in popularity ever since. It is the setting of an oval cut diamond that makes all the difference to its charm.
Make sure you have the skills of an expert to construct the perfect setting for the stone and for your style.
Imperfect settings can be devastating to the look and value of your diamond ring. A common mistake is having prongs that are too heavy or too wide. This distracts the eye and detracts from the beauty of the centre stone. The result is that you will have a cheap looking diamond ring on your hands.
Sizing up your options
Strange as it may seem, too many people choose a ring that is the wrong size for them.
Yes, it looks great but it could be too big or small. That is not something to put up with.
It’s crucial to have a quality jeweller resize your ring (preferably the one who designed your ring for you). Don’t skimp on the cost here either. You could have a gorgeous ring ruined by someone who resizes the ring and leaves a mark or makes it clear that the ring has been cut and reworked to fit.
Any changes should be undetectable. That’s where that trusted jeweller comes into the equation again.
