12 Opulent Oval Engagement Rings from Real Brides

See examples of this shape that's growing in popularity!

Though an engagement ring is timeless by nature – you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life, after all – there are still specific styles that are embraced in waves. One look that is currently having a big moment right now is oval center stones. Given that round-cut diamonds are the most traditional, the oval shape is a nice way to subtly lean away from the standard look. Oval diamonds and gemstones can help your fingers appear longer than they are, and pair beautifully with side stones or a halo. 

If you’re considering proposing with (or hinting for) an oval engagement ring, take a look at the examples below, all worn by real brides. These rings showcase the variety of settings and stones that can be used to create the perfect oval engagement ring to represent your love and commitment.
