History of The Oval Cut 

Even though diamonds and gemstones had been cut to oval shapes for centuries, it wasn’t until the early 1960s that the modern ideal oval cut that we use today was born. It was invented by Russian born diamond cutter Lazare Kaplan, who worked very closely with his uncle Abraham Tolkowsky, the famous diamond cutter who created the modern brilliant Ideal Cut. Before inventing the modern oval cut, Kalpan was recognised for his incredible diamond cleaving skills, a process in which included or flawed diamonds are cut into smaller, better quality diamonds. This is how Kaplan gained the much needed experience to create such a beautifully eye-catching cut.

Why Choose The Oval Cut?

The oval cut is a preferred engagement ring choice for many because of a few interesting reasons..

  • The oval shape is similar to the round brilliant cut in terms of sparkle and brilliance. It’s cut the same, with 56 to 58 facets only it’s elongated rather than round.
  • Due to the oval cut having a larger surface area than the round brilliant, they look bigger than those round brilliant cut with the same carat weight, meaning you’re getting a diamond that looks bigger but without the bigger price tag!
  • The elongated shape of oval cut diamonds lengthens the hand which is super flattering and elegant.
