Round brilliant diamonds continue to be the most popular choice of stone for engagement rings. But If you are after something a little bit different but still love the beautiful curves of a round diamond, then why not look at oval cut stones?
Oval cut diamonds are a fabulous choice that should not be overlooked. Their beautiful shape makes them a versatile choice; stunning in both vintage and modern settings, as a solitaire or set with surrounding smaller diamonds. Like a pear diamonds, an oval diamonds will vary in appearance. The dimensions of oval diamonds will differ, some oval diamonds will appear long and narrow in shape, while others will be shorter and wider.
So who does an oval diamond suit best?
Because of the variations in cut, it is possible for anyone to find an oval diamond to suit their finger shape. Beautiful elongated oval diamonds make the perfect choice for those ladies with smaller, shorter fingers. They offer the illusion of longer, slender fingers.
For inspiration for your own custom made oval engagement ring, you just need to look to the famous hands in Hollywood. One of Larsen Jewellery’s favourite celebrity rings is Blake Lively’s stunning pink oval diamond engagement ring. Lively’s engagement ring is the perfect example of creating a simple setting to allow the diamond to shine. Another noteworthy mention is the vintage inspired engagement ring once worn by Katie Holmes. Tom Cruise proposed to Katie with a stunning 5 carat oval diamond split shank engagement ring encrusted with a halo of diamonds.
Very happy with Larsen Jewellery. Working with Fleur was a great experience, she was so knowledgeable and patient with jewellery novices like us. We love our rings! Highly recommended.

Ben and the team at Larsen Jewellery were superb. The designs and quality of the rings were perfect for us. The engagement ring was unique and with that, we decided to get our wedding bands too. We are now married and the compliments on our rings have been non-stop!

I’m so grateful for the incredible service and craftsmanship of Larsen Jewellery. Fleur is a friendly, professional jewellery designer who demonstrated great passion in what she’s doing. We had a family heirloom ring with 50+ yrs history redesigned, and we couldn’t be happier with the stunning new ring. I would recommend Larsen to all my friends & family. Thanks again for everything!

To call Larsen Jewellery a jewellery store I feel is doing them a disservice. Larsen Jewellery is so much more. I was so hesitant after having a negative experience elsewhere trying to get an engagement ring as a same sex couple, but as soon as I walked through the door I was made to feel so welcome. The wonderful Elissa took the 10 different ideas I had for an engagement ring and put them all together into one cohesive design. When she opened the box to show me the ring I felt like she had reached into my imagination and turned it into reality. Her advice was invaluable and helped make a dream tangible. We went back (after my proposal was accepted) and got my engagement ring as well. We have already decided on bands for our wedding as well thanks to advice from Elissa. I never once felt like Elissa was just trying to make a sale. I always felt like Elissa was there to help with what I needed. All the staff were friendly with a smile and a greeting. What a great experience and one that I am so happy to have had as part of our new journey together. Thank you.

Great experience with Fleur and the team at Larsen. We had a great experience through the design, manufacturing and hand over process. Fleur hand drew a few designs and gave us time to thing, then shared a CAD drawing to ensure we were happy with the final product. We had a tight deadline to meet with the requirements and they were able to be flexible and work with us on getting an intricate design completed quickly! Thank you

Alex was excellent and helpful throughout the whole process. He gave his expert recommendations, and together we designed the perfect ring. He took the time to explain everything in detail and really made the experience a positive one. Will definitely return in the future and recommend to others. Thanks again Alex and the Larsen team

I am absolutely thrilled with my redesigned engagement ring! After 55 years of use, the original design was honoured and enhanced, thanks to Rod and his suggestions. Also to be recommended is the service - the fast repair to other items of jewellery, the friendly greeting of the staff, and the kind offer of refreshing drinks - which are very much appreciated, especially on a warm day.

Amazing experience from start to finish. The staff talked me through the process and were able to stick to my budget without putting pressure on to spend more. The ring was better than expected and the service was first class.
