When you are looking for an engagement ring, one of the first things you will need to decide is what type of stone you want. Once you decide to go with a diamond, ruby, emerald, opal, or one of many other beautiful gemstones, you will have to figure out which cut works best for you. Just as there are many different gemstones to choose from, there are very many different cuts to choose from, one of which is an Oval Cut engagement ring. A Distinct Look An Oval Cut is one of the more rare stone cuts. Since they are typically longer than other stone shapes, ovals can be an eye-catching option. Another plus from the elongated shape is a slimming effect on the fingers. Summerhill is a gorgeous modern day ring that features a deep reddish-purple 1.25 carat tourmaline set on a simple, yet stunning rose gold band. The large size of the tourmaline means the surrounding halo is even larger, and includes twenty beautiful Round Cut brilliant diamonds. Summerhill is a perfect example how original and breathtaking an Oval Cut engagement ring can be. Made to Sparkle Many women want their engagement ring to shine, and if that quality is important to you, an Oval Cut could be a good fit. An Oval Cut is a modified version of a Brilliant Cut, which means it reflects light beautifully. The oval stone is cut to have more surface area than a Round Cut stone so it has the added bonus of looking bigger. You can see the shimmer an Oval Cut engagement ring can give off by checking out Innsbrook.
