The Allure of Oval Engagement Rings

Oval engagement rings have become increasingly sought-after, offering a stunning visual effect on the finger due to their unique elongated shape. This elongated shape is often appreciated as a more flattering diamond shape because it elongates the bride's finger.
Beyond that, the oval engagement ring is seen as a safe yet slightly less traditional version of a round diamond ring. Because of it's beautiful curvature & brilliant faceting, it can be compared to a slightly stretched round diamond.
Symbolism and History Behind Oval Engagement Rings

When it comes to matching an oval engagement ring with a wedding band, there are some key elements that need attention in order for the two pieces to create a unified and pleasing aesthetic. Style compatibility, metal type used and physical fit of the jewelry should be taken into account when choosing your perfect wedding band pairings to complement your oval-cut diamond centerpiece. We will discuss how these factors play integral roles in creating successful pairings between rings.
It is essential to ensure that the engagement and wedding bands styles are in harmony with one another, creating a unified look. An oval cut diamond ring provides you with an extensive range of choices for a matching wedding band such as a wedding bands with smaller oval diamonds or even a plain band that matches the shank of the engagement ring. For engagement rings with melee on the band or unique design features, we always look to include and/or match them when creating matching wedding bands.
Ultimately picking out a style should reflect your unique tastes. Make sure to pick something combining both complementary aspects of the engagement and wedding ring set, and expressing yourself simultaneously.
When it comes to picking the right wedding band, coordinating with or complementing your engagement ring is essential. Popular choices of metal include yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum.
There are typically two main options: choosing the matching metal or choosing a contrasting color metal. Examples include pairing your platinum oval engagement ring with a platinum wedding band... or mixing it up contrasting the engagement ring with a yellow gold wedding band. We're firm believers that matching metals is always safe & that white gold/platinum matches well with yellow gold orrose gold. We don't recommend mixing rose gold and yellow gold as the pairing lacks contrast.
Ultimately though, it all boils down to what appeals personally so pick accordingly!

Width and Band Fit
When looking for the perfect wedding band to go with an oval engagement ring, the band's width relative to the engagement ring band andthe way it sits alongside the ring must be considered. We're big fans of width multiples... which means the band should be about the same width of the engagement ring, 2x the width of the engagement ring, or even 3x depending on the rings.
By band fit, we're answering the question "Do the rings sit flush?" an fit comfortably. Some engagement rings are set a little low & prevent any wedding band from sitting flush. This is okay. If this is your ring, a contoured band that curves around your engagement ring is a great option. Alternatively, you can lean into the gap with a tasteful straight wedding band that still fits comfortably.
Popular Wedding Band Styles for Oval Engagement Rings
Searching for the ideal wedding band to suit your oval engagement ring can be aided by looking at popular styles. First and foremost, we're big fans of pairing oval engagement rings with wedding bands set with little oval diamonds. The smaller diamonds give a nod to your engagement ring's center stone by maintaining the motif, but don't steal the show. Remember, a good wedding band is a compliment to your engagement ring, not the focal point
By incorporating smaller oval diamonds into your wedding band, you're giving yourself the option to leave your engagement ring at home while traveling or running errands while still flashing some oval diamonds. This way, the two rings will look great together and alone.
Our favorite oval wedding bands typically feature shared prong settings or claw settings to show off the little diamond's shape.
Alternatively, you can always pair your oval engagement ring with a wedding band set with round diamonds. Because both diamond shapes are brilliantly faceted, you're maintaining strong sparkle across the whole wedding set.
By examining different designs along with what you personally prefer when it comes to style, you’ll find the best match for your ring among them all!

Caring for and Maintaining Your Oval Engagement Ring and Wedding Band
It is essential to maintain your oval engagement ring and wedding band in order for them to stay beautiful forever. Cleaning, polishing, inspecting regularly can help preserve the brilliance of these rings while keeping their stunning look.
We recommend giving the oval diamond and wedding ring a nice scrub with a toothbrush and (gasp) dish soap once a week. This will not only keep the diamonds clean and super sparkly, but it'll also prevent oils from loosening the prongs' grip on your diamonds. As you can imagine, this mitigated lost diamonds.
With proper care, you will make sure both rings retain their elegance even after many years have passed from when they first adorned your finger!
