  3. All Things Oval: Our Favorite Oval-Cut Rings

Are you looking for the perfect ring for 2022? Oval-cut rings are making headway into the fashion world this year. This stunning diamond shape is a favorite of celebrities and makes an impression with its simplistic, modern design.

The oval-cut diamond has been around for hundreds of years, but only until recently the gemstone shape has become increasingly more popular. Whether you are looking for a classic, modern, or vintage design, read about the history of oval shaped rings and discover our favorite oval stone ring styles!

Oval-Cut Rings Through the Years

The oval-cut ring did not have the most beautiful start to its creation. Jewelers in the 1300s fashioned the first famous oval-cut diamond, which became known as the “Koh-i-Noor”, or “mountain of light”. The Koh-i-Noor was a roughly cut and rounded oval-shaped diamond. Its blocky cuts made the diamond appear darkly colored. This diamond traveled with royalty from country to country until finally ending up in the coronation crown of Queen Alexandra, where it still resides today.

Medieval and Renaissance paintings continue to show the dark-colored diamonds. It wasn't until the 1950s when Lazare Kaplan perfected the cut of the oval diamond. Through years of research, new technology, and mathematical equations with his father and uncle, Lazare finally brought out the exquisite oval-cut diamond in all its light and brilliance.

Today, the oval-cut diamond style has grown in popularity due to its classic yet modern look. This cut can show up in a simple solitaire ring or a vintage-style halo ring. Due to its elongated shape, the oval-cut ring design appears larger than the actual carat amount, and the long oval brings the wearer a thinner, longer look to the fingers.

Over Favorite Oval Ring Styles

1. Solitaire

Simple and yet dazzling, the solitaire oval stone ring is making heads turn this year. Whether you choose a white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum, or palladium band, this style is perfect for someone who is looking for a classic and timeless ring. Our solitaire oval-cut ring will be an excellent addition to your jewelry collection or the perfect piece that will symbolize forever with the love of your life.

2. Three Stone

The three-stone ring is a way to display a vibrant center stone surrounded by two additional stones on either side. Simple yet intrinsic, this ring is customizable to the size and shape of the diamonds and gemstones. Our three-stone oval-cut ring paired with two adjacent stones is great for showing off a ruby, citrine, or your favorite colored gemstone. Display it on a gold band of your choice and enjoy the beauty of this timeless design.

3. Solitaire with Pavé

Dare to take the solitaire oval ring further with a pavé band? The center stone sitting above the diamond layered band brings a delightful pop to this design. Pair our pavé solitaire oval ring with a brightly-colored stone to highlight its brilliance. Or, opt for a glimmering diamond center stone for a piece worth saying “I do” to.

4. East to West

Oval-cut rings are all about the style. With oval-cut gemstones, you can place them in different orientations to highlight their uniqueness. When the oval is placed lengthwise within the ring, it is called an east to west setting. This style makes the ring look more luxurious and unique as it paves the road to the side diamonds.

Our east-west oval ring brings eyes to the stone first and then lingers straight into the side diamonds. Choose a gem that speaks boldly to this ring and match it with the perfect band metal and pavé colors.

5. Halo

If you are looking for a vintage-style ring, our oval stone halo ring is for you. With this design, the center gemstone is surrounded by a “halo” of small pavé gemstones or diamonds. This style creates the beautiful illusion of a larger center stone, especially when the pavé gemstones and center stones match. You can customize this oval-cut ring, from the stones to the band. This ring sparkles in different directions and has the same eye appeal today as it did centuries ago.

6. Moi et Toi

If this is the year for proposing, the Moi et Toi oval ring is the one for you. Nothing says, “I love you”, more than pairing two diamond gems together in one enticing ring. Our bypass oval ring is perfect for symbolizing two becoming one. Give your soulmate the oval stone ring that says it all.
