JEWELRY EDUCATION > GLOSSARY > Oval Cut
Similar to a round brilliant cut, the oval offers a unique look that still maintains the brilliance of a round diamond. The oval cut is perfect for those looking for the traditional brilliance of a round cut, but with a modern touch. The oval shape also helps to elongate the look of a finger. There are no exact methods or measurements standard for an oval cut diamond, meaning each one will have the same general shape but will vary in exact dimensions.
