Oval engagement rings have made a comeback in recent years, particularly with the likes of Blake Lively, Kate Middleton and Katie Holmes all opting for this cut for their engagement ring. It is a great alternative for those that love a round brilliant diamond as it has wonderful brilliance and also with more surface area you can afford more diamond for your dollar.
One of the most popular styles of engagement rings is the halo engagement ring and an oval diamond looks particularly beautiful surrounded by a halo of diamonds or coloured gems. Adding a halo accentuates the beauty of the centre stone and is also a fantastic way to create the illusion of a larger stone and give your ring that extra sparkle.
It is not only oval diamonds that we have fallen in love with. If you love colour you might consider a sapphire as your centre stone such as a pink stone like Blake Lively’s or do as many women have done in recent years and recreate your own Royal ring, featuring an oval blue Sapphire like Kate Middleton’s.
Oval engagement rings with a halo exude sophistication and elegance, they are also a wonderful option for women who want to create the illusion of longer hands. No two oval diamonds are the same, the width to length ratio varies in all, and whether you prefer a long elongated shaped or a rounder ‘fatter’ shape is up to you.
Let’s take a look at some of the most exquisite oval engagement rings with a halo and prove that no two oval engagement rings have to look the same!
