An oval cut diamond ring is a perfectly viable option as a solitaire engagement ring. Very often, the oval looks a bit larger than a brilliant cut of the same weight.
The oval cut has more advantages. Generally speaking, an oval cut diamond has less polishing loss compared to a brilliant. Therefore, an oval cut diamond ring is often more economically beneficial. Moreover, the elongated shape of an oval can make the fingers look more slender and longer. For this oval cut solitaire diamond engagement ring, we used an 18 karat white gold setting with four prongs. The diamond is an 0.81 carat oval cut with a Top Wesselton color and a VS clarity.
