It’s a new year and we are already seeing the new trends that 2017 has to offer. And one trend that we just can’t get enough of is the stunning oval cut diamond. This classic diamond shape is making a comeback in a major way and we are definitely paying attention.
The gorgeous oval cut diamond first made its appearance in the 1960’s. It was a modification of the traditional round brilliant cut diamond, elongated into the elegant oval shape, while still keeping that great sparkle. It quickly garnered popularity and attention but became over shadowed when other popular fancy shape diamonds came onto the market.
Now, the oval cut diamond is back in high demand and it is easy to see why. The shape is timeless, classic and offers nothing but sparkle. The oval cut diamond also looks amazing in a variety of settings so its versatility rates high on the charts. My preference for the lovely oval diamond, is the simple solitaire pictured at left. We have set the diamond in a white gold, four-claw setting and placed it on a slim, high polish yellow gold band. With this design, it is all about the oval and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
