How To Buy Oval Cut Diamond: Ultimate Guide

Oval-cut diamonds have been in existence for a long time now. This particular diamond cut, due to its elegance, is the trending cut for 2021 diamond rings. With a combined look of the round brilliant and pear-shaped diamond, it is often referred to as a modified round brilliant diamond.


This diamond cut has no edges. Rather, it has 58 facets, just like the round brilliant diamond cut. Majorly, the oval cut diamond is special because it elongates fingers, giving them a slender look.


You can get oval-cut diamonds in excellent quality and the highest shine level at Dianoche, at great prices. We pride ourselves on selling the best diamonds at affordable prices and we invite you to try us. Our expert gemologists will be more than glad to assist you.

What is a Good Size For an Oval Diamond?

The perfect size for any diamond cut depends completely on the choice or preference of the buyer. However, the ideal size for an oval cut diamond is a length-width ratio of 1.35-1.50.


Anything below 1.35 makes the diamond seem wider and shorter, thus losing its name and elegance. Whereas anything above 1.50 makes the diamond look too long and narrow.

Choosing the right diamond, especially an oval cut diamond, is not an easy task. There are a lot of things to take into consideration.


1. Clarity:


Normally, the oval cut diamond hides the faults of the diamond. It corrects and smoothens the diamond, mostly the area around the edges. This ability can be attributed to the high luster of the diamond.


With that in mind, there is no need to go for a high clarity diamond. Going for a low clarity oval diamond will still give you the elegance you need. High clarity graded diamonds are more expensive than low-quality graded diamonds.

‚ÄėSlightly included 1‚Äô (SI1) or ‚ÄėSlightly included 2‚Äô (SI2) are good clarity grades for oval diamonds. They are more affordable and still deliver the best quality.


2. Cut:


When determining the cut of an oval diamond, you are in charge of making the decisions. This is because the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) doesn’t grade the quality of sophisticated diamond cuts. Therefore, you need to personally assess the cut of the diamond to make sure it matches your taste.


Generally, there are oval cut diamond parameters that are ideal and help you make your own decision. Some of them are:


  • Table: Has a range of 53%-57%


  • Depth: Has a range of 57%-62%


  • Girdle: Has a range of extremely thing-slightly thick


When selecting the cut of an oval diamond, the most important thing is making sure it turns out perfect. A perfect oval-cut diamond is well-proportioned, brilliant, and stunning.

Let’s dive into these.

3. Color:

Diamond color grade ranges from D to Z. D represents colorless diamonds. On the other hand, Z represents colored or slightly colored diamonds.


The color of the diamond depends on the taste of the buyer. Also, it depends on the color of the ring it is set in. However, when it comes to oval cut diamonds, a color grade not so above H or H itself is perfect.


4. Carat:

Just like most of the features of an oval-cut diamond, the carat you are selecting depends completely on your taste. You can go for bigger sizes or smaller sizes.

Nevertheless, there is an ideal size for oval cut diamonds. 1.3-1.5 gives you a perfect oval diamond. When you exceed these carats, you may not get the required look. For perfection, choose a carat within this range.

A 2-carat oval diamond can also work. It’s a little bit on the large side. A 3-carat oval diamond appears too long and slender, losing the fancy oval look.


Even though big diamonds are attractive and expensive, it’s best to avoid them in this case. A 5-carat oval diamond is too big for an oval diamond cut.


5. If you are looking to buy your diamond for a ring- the setting:


An oval diamond doesn’t have pointed corners. Due to this fact, its sides are not as vulnerable as the pear-shaped diamond.


Naturally, people go for a solitaire setting when buying diamonds. But, for an oval diamond, the best setting is the prong setting. A four-prong, six-prong, or eight-prong setting is great for an oval cut diamond, depending on the size of the diamond.


For your oval diamond to look perfect on a ring, we recommend you to consider the prong setting.
