Oval Cut Engagement Rings: The Top Bridal Trend for 2019
March 4th, 2019
When it comes to engagement rings, you’ll want to make sure that yours is both up-to-date and unapologetically you. Read on for our take on oval cut engagement rings, an up-and-coming trend you won’t want to miss.
Diamonds are forever, but engagement ring trends come and go. In 2019, the classic solitaire ring is getting a major upgrade with a sleeker, slimmer, oval shaped cut.
From the moment Prince William placed his mother’s engagement ring on Princess Kate Middleton’s finger, oval engagement rings have been having their moment. Since then, ovals have been popping up all over the red carpet. From basketball wife LaLa Anthony’s gorgeous sparkling oval cut solitaire to Jennifer Aniston’s ten carat stunner, celebrities are rocking these elliptical rocks. Even Ryan Reynolds opted for an oval solitaire with a geometric band when he popped the question to long term beau Blake Lively.
While we can’t all marry Ryan Reynolds, everyone can certainly get in on this latest ring shape trend. There are plenty of reasons to opt for an oval cut. The elongated shape makes larger hands appear more delicate, and the increased surface area gives the illusion of a larger ring. Your fiance might not be able to afford a ten carat ring like the one Justin Theroux bought for Jennifer Aniston, but this clever cut will always appear larger than a square or round cut solitaire of equal carats.
Popular Oval Cut Engagement Ring Styles
Take this classic vintage halo ring with an embellished diamond band, for example. Fourteen carat white gold beautifully sets off the prong setting of the large center stone for a dazzling effect.
Or perhaps an embellished double halo version is more your style. A smaller center stone is cushioned by two circles of pave stones, reminiscent of gilded age jewelry.
Another option is the stunning, almost floral shape of this oval halo engagement ring. Twelve brilliant rounds delicately cradle a large center stone, drawing even more attention to its depth and dimension.
Of course, you might prefer something more traditional like this vintage milgrain ring with a four point prong setting. The thin band and elongated center shape will make your fingers look svelte and graceful, while the embellished inner band shows incredible attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.
Or what about a bold and colorful twist on an old classic like this gorgeous yellow diamond, three band halo ring? The yellow gold four point prong setting perfectly compliments the large center stone while the white gold band and prong set side stones are very reminiscent of Princess Diana’s infamous oval sapphire. Three impressive rows of contrasting diamond accent stones are sure to make you feel like royalty the second you slip it on.
