What Should you Notice When Purchasing an Oval Cut Diamond?
You are probably asking yourself, how did this shape become so popular? Well, the reason this stone is so desirable among many people is because of its unique cut. The cut is the shape of the diamond and in the oval cut you can find a brilliant combination of a round cut diamond and a pear cut.
Another reason the shape is so popular is due to the fact that oval shaped diamonds tend to look bigger than the round cut, and as we know – the bigger the better.
Finally, who wouldn’t like to have a diamond that elongates shorter fingers? This shape is super flattering on any hand for that reason.
While understanding the reasons for this shape’s popularity is important, knowing how to purchase the right stone is an art. When you decide to purchase an oval cut diamond make sure that you deal with an authorized and well known brand that can really give you a peace of mind when you are purchasing.
In regards to the diamond itself, the correct and most proportional size is 1.33-1.66 (length to width). However, in case you’re considering adding some more side stones or changing your setting you should think of getting a wider center stone.
Another important factor you should really pay attention to is the bow-tie effect. This term refers to the specific area in the stone where the sparkle is diminished and the diamond has a bit of dullness. All ovals will have a tiny bit of bow-tie effect but you want to avoid it as much as you can. Nature Sparkle is well known for our flawless shapes, incredible shine and with limited to no bowtie effect in our diamonds.
