60 Stunning Oval Engagement Rings That'll Leave You Speechless

Oval engagement rings are having a moment — more brides are opting for this chic shape as an alternative to the more common round brilliant, including A-listers like Blake Lively, Julianne Hough, and Jennifer Aniston.

The oval-cut diamond was invented in the early 1960s, and it provides similar sparkle factor but a larger surface area than a round-cut diamond of the same weight, ensuring you get the most bang for your buck. And if you prefer colorful gemstones, such as a sapphire or morganite, an oval setting will showcase it to perfection.
