Find your dream oval engagement ring

The most popular styles of oval engagement rings include oval solitaire rings and oval diamond band rings. Both are incredibly refined and modern, although the diamond band setting will offer added sparkle for those seeking further brilliance. For a further, subtle sparkle, consider adding the custom touch of a diamond set bridge or hidden halo to your oval engagement ring.

An oval halo engagement ring nods to vintage design and is a surefire way to enhance the size of your ring thanks to the addition of melee diamonds around the centre gem. A scallop set halo will appear a little more contemporary, while a pavé halo will give the ring an Art Deco edge.

How much do oval engagement rings cost in the UK?

The cost of your oval cut engagement ring will depend on the quality of the diamond, and more importantly, its carat weight. A 1 carat oval diamond ring costs around £1,900 for a lab diamond, and from £700 for the ring setting, so a total of around £2,600. A natural diamond will cost around 75% more.
