No doubt about it, oval diamonds are having a major moment!
Based on both sales data and social media engagement, oval shaped diamonds continue to rise in popularity. With their scintillating brilliance and flattering elongated shape, it’s no wonder why oval engagement rings are so beloved.
A modified brilliant cut, oval diamonds sparkle exquisitely in a unique, elongated shape. Their lengthened surface area often makes them appear larger than round diamonds of the same carat weight. These beautifully shaped diamonds can stand alone as a statement in solitaire settings or work well when complemented by diamond accented bands.
The likes have spoken! We scrolled through our Instagram to see which Brilliant Earth ring designs people loved most when set with oval diamonds. Here are our top 8 oval diamond engagement rings according to Instagram:
