Classic Oval Diamond Ring Styles and Ideas | Rare Carat

Solitaire Oval Diamond Ring

A solitaire oval diamond ring is possibly one of the most simple and sexy designs out there. Depending on the size of diamond you choose, you can play with the number of prongs and the setting of the stone. Many set the stone North/South though recently people have been playing with directions and setting stones East/West as well!

Remember that with a solitaire your center stone is the most important piece so make sure you pick a great cut! In terms of the mounting, you can play with colored metals and the intricacy of the metal work. Twisted bands featuring an oval diamond and simple half flat / round bands have recently become popular. You can also add a milgrain design to the band or maybe have it hand engraved. The solitaire is a great choice for something timeless that never goes out of style! Dress it up with a variety of wedding bands.

This sleek design leaves the center stone to shine while adding a touch of bling to your band. Here you can play with the number of melee (tiny diamonds) and their sizes to meet your style of big bling or understated. These tiny stones should not have any visible color so they will go with any color center stone!

Classic Three Stone Oval Diamond Ring

A three stone oval diamond ring featuring three ovals is a bold and shiny statement. You will have your work cut out for you to match this tricky shape three times though! Again, because we are combining diamonds, best to pick stones that match in color, clarity and measurements to make sure the ring is as symmetrical as possible. Often times the retailer will do this for you. You can choose to have only oval stones or feature an oval in the center and mix it up with different side stones. Maybe two round diamonds or flanked by two pears.

Halo Oval Diamond Ring

The Halo design will add some visual size to your center stone and a little bling. Usually, the halo surrounding the oval diamond is made of smaller round diamonds, which come in a range of millimeter sizes that you can pick from to make the oval stand out just that much more. No matter which color metal you prefer, the halo design with an oval is very feminine and glamorous. This ring packs a lot of sparkle and looks gorgeous with an oval center stone of any size!
