The oval shape is an elegant combination of the round brilliant cut and the marquise diamond. This brilliant cut features shimmering facets that make the light dance and create the illusion of longer fingers.
Bold and sophisticated, the oval diamond is a unique shape for the wearer who wants to express their individuality.
Oval diamonds are a modified brilliant cut (like virtually round cuts). Because the two shapes possess a similar fire and brilliance, the oval is an ideal choice for a customer who likes the look of a round diamond but wants something more unique.
Oval diamonds have the added advantage of an elongated shape, which can create the illusion of greater size. The slender shape can also make the finger of the wearer appear longer and slimmer, an effect often desired.
Evaluating colour in oval diamonds is subjective. Keep in mind that many buyers may actually prefer the ever so slightly warmer colours of a G-H diamond over the cool colourlessness of a D-F diamond.
In fact, most of the premium in price associated with oval diamonds at the higher end of the colour scale is driven by supply and demand; customers want the D-F colour grades and are willing to pay a premium to get them.
In a world without diamond colour grading, the price premium for higher grades would be much lower, as the actual differences in colour are difficult to perceive.
However, evaluating clarity in oval diamonds is subjective. Lab entities provide excellent help with their clarity grades. Still, it is important to understand that each customer will have a unique standard for clarity.
Some may be perfectly comfortable with an inclusion as long as they cannot easily see it. Others may insist on a more technically flawless appearance.
The curved shape of the Oval Cut Diamond is perfect for those with an active lifestyle because it doesn’t contain any pointed edges. The fancy Oval Diamond also showcases a distinct personality with a high level of brilliance and fire.
Consider an Oval Cut Diamond for those who want an elegant look with a unique flair and excellent durability.
