What to Know About Oval Cut Diamonds

When choosing an oval cut diamond engagement ring, know that oval cut diamonds feature the “bow tie effect”: like other fancy shape diamonds, there is a space in the center of each oval cut diamond that does not reflect light. The better cut the oval diamond, the smaller the bow tie effect.

Other important considerations for oval cut diamonds: each stone has a varying length-to-width ratio, and either has round or flat shoulders (corners of the oval can be rounded or sloped).

Longer or wider oval cut diamonds? Round or flat shoulders?

Longer oval cut diamonds with flat shoulders are usually considered more elegant while more wider oval cut diamonds with rounded shoulders give less of a bow tie. Of course, personal taste always plays a part in the decision too!
