A vintage spin on the classic round stone, oval engagement rings are a romantic design that is sure to delight whoever you’re popping the question to. An oval diamond is cut the same way as a brilliant round diamond and its longer shape can make your finger look long and elegant. To make it appear even bigger, select a halo setting that will really make your ring pop!

An oval shape is symbolic of life and eternity, so pledging your love with an oval engagement ring is a fantastic way to say ‘I love you’ in a truly meaningful way. The oval symbolises both eternal commitment and rebirth, demonstrating that you two are embarking on a new and exciting journey together.

Oval engagement rings can look sleek and modern in a smooth low setting or vintage and romantic secured by delicate claws. The setting you choose depends on your personality and budget. If money is no issue and you like a classical style, go for a 3 or 4 carat solitaire with side diamonds to really dazzle. If you are trying to make the most of your budget, select a halo or trilogy setting to enhance your centre diamond. Whatever your budget, Diamond Exchange recommends choosing your unique engagement ring based on quality and value.
