3 Reasons Why People Love Oval Shaped Gemstones

Whether you are into diamonds, lab-grown diamonds, Moissanite, alexandrite, sapphire, rubies, emeralds, or tanzanite. It is undeniable that an oval shaped gemstone is one of the most popular shapes of them all.

Here are 3 Reasons Why.

1. Ovals appear larger due to the elongated shape. An oval gemstone gives off an optical illusion that it is heavier in carat weight than it actually is since it is rounder in the center and longer on the opposite ends. When it is worn vertically and parallel to the length of the finger, ovals may look larger than round cuts even if it is lighter in carat weight.

2. Ovals are softer around the edges. People who tend to like round and cushion shapes also love oval cuts. The rounded perimeters of the gemstone highlights the softer touch that more angular gemstones do not have. 

3.  Most oval cuts are brilliant cuts. Brilliant cuts in all shapes and sizes are faceted to maximize the sparkle, fire and brilliance of a gemstone. Most ovals are brilliant cuts and is the precise reason why people love this shape when worn as the center piece to an engagement ring, pendant or pair of earrings.
