Oval vs. Emerald, Which Should You Choose?

When picking engagement rings, consider the cut of the center stone. True, every cut is unique and reflects the wearer’s personality, but oval cut and emerald cut moissanite looks particularly beautiful on almost all hand shapes and sizes.

OVAL CUT MOISSANITE RING

Similar to a round diamond, an oval cut moissanite is round but slightly elongated. It is a beautiful fusion of two diamonds with a flanked center and is most commonly sought in three-stone rings. When cut to perfection, the stone’s brilliance shines right through.

Its ideal curvature makes it timeless and enhances the ring’s overall appeal. Oval cut moissanite rings are ideal for short or small hands, giving the illusion of slender fingers.

EMERALD CUT MOISSANITE RING

Also known as a step-cut diamond, an emerald cut moissanite comes with fewer facets (25 to be exact) than a round cut moissanite. The emerald cut is usually in a square or rectangular shape and has tapered corners. Since an emerald cut has fewer facets, the moissanite has a limited surface to reflect light it.

However, this does not make emerald cut engagement rings less desirable. It is most popular among those looking for something unique and enchanting. Moreover, they are one of the most popular heirlooms in moissanite engagement ring history.

If your significant other is all about glamour and elegance, an emerald cut ring is a style for her! Thanks to its flat surface, lean facets, and extended sides, the stone has more potential to flaunt its clarity. Although it may be limited in terms of brilliance, it surely makes up for it in elegance!

Should You Choose an Oval or Emerald Cut Ring?

Deciding on an oval versus emerald cut engagement ring involves knowing the traits that determine their overall performance as the center stone on a ring.

Here are some guidelines to help you know whether to choose an oval or emerald cut.

You should choose an oval cut if:

  • You want a moissanite that has many qualities in common with round cuts but costs less per carat
  • You’re interested in an alternative to the most popular cuts but don’t want to sacrifice brilliance
  • Its overall shape is appealing to you, and you want a stone that effectively hides blemishes.

You should consider an emerald cut if:

  • You aren’t interested in moissanite with strong light performance
  • You want rectangular moissanite with large facets

By comparing oval and emerald cuts, and pairing them with multiple styles of settings, you can discover the perfect ring for you.
