I recently purchased an engagement ring for my fiancé from Diamond elite. I dealt closely with Theresa for my purchase.
I was strongly recommended her from two of my close work friends who had used her in the past for engagement and wedding bands. Theresa was exceptional to deal with. She has great knowledge, very approachable and such a professional.
For someone like me who didn't know anything about engagement rings she made my experience very easy from start to finish. She gave me great insight, knowledge and helped me choose a ring that my fiancé just loves. I would highly recommend diamond elite, and will be passing on my recommendations to friends and family going forward.

What Is an Oval Cut Engagement Ring?
The Oval cut diamond shape has the same brilliant cut as a round diamond and will draw attention to any hand that wears it.
The proportions of oval-cut diamonds vary; some are long and skinny, while others are shorter and wider.
Oval diamond rings are stunning when set in a halo, along a unique twist band, or on their own as an oval solitaire engagement ring.
Pros of an Oval Cut Engagement Ring
-A larger-looking diamond
-A unique shapeA more affordable option
-Elongates your fingers
-Good at hiding colour and flaws
-No sharp corners
-Versatile with many design options
Cons of Oval Cut Engagement Ring
-The dreaded bow-tie effect
-Symmetry can be off.
As its name implies, the bow tie effect is a particular phenomenon that affects several diamond shapes by casting a shadow that resembles a bow tie over the middle section of the stone.
It occurs when the light shines through and reflects off the facets of the stone, and is refracted in a way that creates this shadow.
While an oval cut diamond will always have a bowtie, not all bowties are alike. They can have differing degrees of prominence as well as effects on performance.
While some clients consider a bowtie a flaw, others may embrace this pattern in the middle of an oval cut as a unique feature.
What to Look for in an Oval Cut Engagement Ring?
The cut of a diamond is the most important factor in determining its beauty. While oval-cut diamonds are not graded on the cut, they are graded on polish and symmetry. To ensure a lot of sparkles, select a stone with Excellent polish and Excellent symmetry.
The depth percentage and table percentage of a diamond is also important when it comes to its beauty and sparkle. Look for oval-cut diamonds with 58-62% depth and 53-63% table.
Another thing we recommend when looking for a diamond is to buy slightly less than your desired carat weight.
This means that instead of a 1-carat diamond, opt for a 0.90-0.99-carat diamond.
These diamonds will appear to be the same size as a one-carat diamond to the naked eye, but you can potentially save hundreds of dollars.
How to clean/care for an Oval Cut Engagement Ring?
The simplest method for cleaning your Oval-cut diamond ring is as follows:
- Fill a bowl with warm water.
- Add a few drops of dishwashing soap.
- Wash the ring for between 20 and 40 minutes.
- With a soft toothbrush, gently clean the ring.
- Dry with a soft cloth (air drying works too)

What does an Oval Cut Engagement Ring mean?
The oval engagement ring is the ideal symbol of enduring love and dedication. It's also an excellent way to demonstrate your love for your fiancé.
This stone's shape represents uniqueness and individuality, as well as pushing boundaries while still respecting and honoring tradition.

When looking for oval diamond engagement rings, you should not have to stretch your budget.

I have the most incredible engagement ring in the world.
My now fiancé did a bunch of research, knew what he wanted then enquired about a diamond. Belinda assisted him and gave him more information that was really helpful. The diamond he enquired about didn't tick all his boxes so Belinda searched for the perfect diamond. She found one and it is honestly perfect. She then helped him create the most beautiful engagement ring, with perfect proportions. Not only was this such a personal piece, my fiancé ended up spending less than he was expecting. It's good to know that he wasn't ripped off. The end product was beyond expectations.
