Oval Shape

Oval Stone Shape

Oval shaped diamonds are a modern take on the traditional round brilliant, having a similar level of beautiful brilliance. Created in the 1960s by Lazare Kaplan, the cousin of mathematician Marcel Tolkowsky who was instrumental in developing round brilliant diamonds, oval shaped diamonds are a flattering option, as they create the illusion of elongating the hand of the wearer. Due to a larger surface area, oval shaped stones can look larger than round diamonds of the same carat weight, making this another great option for those wanting the illusion of a larger stone.
