Oval engagement rings have been gaining in popularity over the last few years, and 2021 is no exception.  An oval diamond is considered a fancy shape diamond with exquisite brilliance and fire. Whether you opt for an elongated oval, or a rounder, fatter version, an oval diamond is an ideal choice if you like the flash of a round brilliant, but want the uniqueness of an oval diamond.

Whether it be a sentimental touch adding a grandmother’s or mother’s diamond, or creating a ring that reflects your personal style, two-stone rings are perfect for the woman who craves something distinctive for her engagement ring.
