Oval Engagement Rings: 19 of the Most Beautiful Settings We’ve Ever Seen

Take a look at our favourite oval engagement rings, featuring all kinds of styles - from diamond three gem settings to unique coloured stones!

Oval engagement rings

If you already know you want an oval engagement ring then it’s worth having a little browse of the different styles and sizes.

Knowing your preferred shape for the main stone is a great place to start, and with that in mind you can now start working out things like whether you’d like shoulder detailing or if you’d prefer a single precious oval-shaped gem, or if you think you might favour gold, silver or platinum when it comes to the band.

When picking between the oval engagement rings below it’s worth having a little think about your wedding band at the same time too. If you’re going to go for a simple knife-edge band then you might like a similar style for your wedding band, and with an oval shaped stone you could consider a specially-shaped wedding band that will curve round the stone, so that they sit snugly together on your ring finger.

Whatever you choose it’ll be the most precious piece of jewellery you own so make sure, if you’re picking it yourself with your partner, that you take your time, try on lots of styles and have fun finding ‘the one’.

Here are some of our favourite oval engagement rings.

Labradorite Rose Cut Ring – Lee Renee

Labradorite Rose Cut Ring

If you’re not sure a diamond’s for you then you could consider going down the Labradorite route. These stunning stones are known for their huge variation in colour, and often throw up grey and white marble-like patterns. They’re translucent, so don’t reflect as much light as a diamond or similar precious stone, but are beautiful in their simplicity.
