Oval-cut diamond:

Oval cut diamonds are essentially elongated round cut diamonds. They offer exceptional brilliance and they also have the ability to lengthen the look of the fingers. Many women with smaller hands or shorter fingers prefer the look of oval cut diamonds and pear shaped diamonds because they truly slenderize and elongate the fingers on the hand.

Choosing an Oval-Cut Diamond:

For oval-cut diamonds that are pleasing to the eye, look for length-to-width ratios between 1.33 and 1.60.
