Oval Cut 3 Diamond Ring

These days the oval cut is a favorite for engagement rings and special gifts. There are some distinctive reasons for this. According to the grapevine this particular cut offers benefits that some other cuts fail to present. First of all the elliptical shape appears to be larger in size than a round brilliant cut diamond of the same carat weight. This means that many who cannot afford a bigger carat can instead opt for such a cut and shape to make all the difference in the ring setting. Even a smaller carat oval cut 3 diamond ring, may look more stunning than a single brilliant cut diamond. Another benefit of an oval cut is the exclusivity of its look. The egg shaped diamond is known to accentuate long and slender fingers, giving the whole setting an elegant and beautiful appeal.

Created in the early 1960s, the Oval cut has only gained popularity ever since. This cut is a longer and narrower variation of the Round Brilliant cut, and tends to give the diamond a unique and intriguing fa├žade, while costing about 10% less as compared to the round brilliant. Oval is a fancy cut with 56 facets, which gives it similar brilliance and fire as the round while adding a special touch of shape. It is one of the most ideal cuts for a three diamond ring as a center stone. In fact, you can choose round brilliant cut diamonds instead of oval cut to frame the centre stone, for an unusual and dramatic effect. Creating a style and look that you desire for the ring is the goal. A safe bet would be to use all three oval cut diamonds or a centre oval cut diamond with pear shaped diamonds on the side.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind while procuring an oval cut diamond. You will need to consult a jeweler, diamond dealer or check some information online to decide on the depth to length to width ratio of the diamond you wish to buy. It is important that you pay attention to the bulge on the face of the diamond and make sure the stone has a pleasing outline and is perfectly oval in shape when viewed from the top. In view of the fact that such a stone is more or less a fancy round brilliant cut in an oval shape, it is of utmost importance to invest in high grades of color and clarity.

Once you have chosen your center stone for an oval cut 3 diamond ring, you can decide on other aspects of the ring like the shape and cut of the flaking diamonds, the precious metal for the setting, etc.
