2. Oval cut diamonds
Oval diamonds have become increasingly popular with celebrities and the trend is predicted to continue into 2018. Serena Williams, Blake Lively and Kirsten Dunst have all fallen for the oval cut. What many people might not realise is that elongated diamond cuts often appear larger when compared to the same size round or square shapes. This size illusion can also make the finger look slightly longer and more slender.
Did you know? – Oval diamonds were first mentioned in literature in the 1800s. Possibly the world’s most famous oval diamond, the Koh-I-Noor, was presented to Queen Victoria in 1850. It was said that ‘whoever owned the Koh-I-Noor ruled the world’. Weighing 105.60 carats, it was later set into the Queen Mother’s crown and can now be seen in the Tower of London.
