31 Stunning Oval Engagement Rings

Forget round-cut engagement rings, oval-cut diamonds are making a major comeback.

Updated 06/04/19

Whether you’re hoping for a sleek and contemporary engagement ring or want a vintage-inspired style with distinctive details, an oval-cut diamond is a trendy choice that can appeal to both classic and modern tastes. With an elongated shape, oval-cut diamonds often look much bigger than their actual carat size — so much bang for your buck! — plus, they elongate your finger for an elegant and flattering effect.

Of course, ovals aren’t exactly new to the engagement ring scene, but the shape’s resurgence is largely thanks to Kate Middleton—the Duchess of Cambridge wears an oval engagement ring that belonged to Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana and possesses a regal feel that many modern brides covet for their own engagement ring. While Kate Middleton’s oval engagement ring features a sapphire center stone, the style errs on the side of classic with a pavé band and halo, perfectly blending a timeless and modern aesthetic. But if you’re feeling something more modern, myriad ring styles abound that will appeal to more directional or unconventional tastes from yellow and rose-gold metals to east-west settings, double bands, off-kilter center stones, and cluster rings. Vintage-inspired oval rings are also stunning if you like a something-old meets something-new vibe. Or, you can go super minimal and choose a solitaire oval in a thin metal band in platinum or gold.

Whether your engagement ring style is dainty, minimal, vintage-inspired, classic, or ultra-blingy, ahead, scroll through 31 of our favorite oval-cut engagement rings — no matter your taste, there’s undoubtedly an oval for you.
