This beautiful oval brilliant cut diamond ring with oval brilliant diamond side stones has a 1.35-carat oval brilliant cut diamond in the center with 0.98 total carat weight of matched oval brilliant shaped side diamonds.
The oval brilliant cut diamond measures 9.04 x 6.24 x 3.83 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.44. We recommend well rounded ends with a full body having an optimal length-to-width ratio of 1.33-1.55. The oval brilliant cut diamond has a 61.4% depth percentage and a 56% table percentage. For oval-cut diamonds, we recommend a depth of 58-65.4% and table of 52-64% with smaller percentages generally producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The oval’s technical name is “oval modified brilliant,” based upon its shape and modifications of the traditional round brilliant diamond configuration. Lazare Kaplan invented the oval diamond shape in the early 1960’s. Oval diamonds provide a bigger surface area than a round diamond with the same carat weight and therefore are an excellent option for shoppers looking for the brilliance of the round diamond but a bigger size for their dollars.
The oval brilliant side diamonds measure 6.40 x 4.26 x 2.65 mm. If you like the proportions of this three stone diamond ring, we can recreate the proportional look of this ring in any carat weight range. The diamonds are set in a custom 14-karat white gold mounting designed for these specific diamonds and the client’s finger size. The best three stone diamond rings are custom made so that the side diamonds fit closely next to the center diamond and appear as non-stop diamonds across the finger when viewed from the top. The four-prong basket style head holding the each diamond provides a durable and secure base for the diamonds. As you can see the four prongs protect each diamond without overwhelming the appearance with too much metal. This is a sign of beautiful artistry.
The combination of three ovals shaped diamonds is a great choice for a woman that loves the brilliant sparkle of the round diamond but prefers an elongated shape on her finger. The three oval diamonds set together create a finger full of sparkle for less money than most diamond shapes. In the oval-shape, as with pear shapes and other elongated fancy shape diamonds, there is an increased likelihood of having a “bow tie.” This is a dark area in the shape of a man’s bow tie that occurs when the cut of diamond facets reflecting light are not the best. This facet misalignment can take away from the brilliance, especially if it is an exaggerated or obviously dark bow tie effect. At the Diamond Source of Virginia, we specifically seek oval brilliant diamonds without the bow tie effect to provide the most beautiful oval brilliant diamonds for our clients. When you have three diamonds with the possibility of bow ties it is important to have someone working to eliminate the bow tie effect in your three stone diamond ring.
