Ovals are one of our most requested engagement ring center stones. They've seen a surge in popularity as of late, with celebrities like Blake Lively and Hailey Bieber rocking the style. About 30% of our clients request oval-cut diamonds because of how big the shape spreads and how flattering it is on the finger due to its lengthening effect.
The best oval-cut engagement rings boast a balanced length-to-width ratio that elongates the finger while still providing enough width to ensure a beautiful spread that showcases the brilliance of the diamond. Oval engagement rings are especially striking in solitaire settings but are also beautiful with side stones and pavé detailing—especially hidden halos like Devon Windor's custom Floating Oval Engagement Ring.
Below we've rounded up 12 of the best oval-cut engagement ring styles with something to suit every style.
