The Oval Shape


The oval is a classic brilliant cut with an elliptical outline first created centuries ago but perfected in the mid 20th century. Since its outline closely resembles the round but isn’t quite a pear, it makes a good choice for those who appreciate something just a little bit different.

Brilliant cut diamonds have triangular and kite shaped facets that radiate from a diamond’s center outwards. This brillianteering intensifies a diamond’s fire, scintillation, and brilliance giving the stone “life.”
