Oval cut center stone engagement ring designs

Our favorite engagement rings featuring oval shaped center stones

Updated November 3, 2022

In the pursuit of a beautiful love story, we often find ourselves seeking the meaning behind things that are just basic at first glance. We know you are probably wondering what kind of symbolism an oval would have in your lifelong commitment of love — I mean, it’s just a shape, right? Well, as mundane as it may seem, oval cut engagement rings symbolize newness and completion. Aside from the deep symbolism, the shape also has a perfect balance of minimalism and timelessness for the couples that appreciate the good old classics. Let’s look at some of the oval cut center stone pieces our couples designed for their own love stories!


Our first engagement ring features an oval cut ruby for the center stone with round diamond accents along the twisted band. The ruby center stone perfectly complements the white gold band, finishing the ensemble off with an understated vintage royalty vibe.


We’re suckers for a good love story! For the next piece, the couple added a personal touch by requesting us to commemorate the date they started dating. This personal memory is engraved on the inside of the lioness-detailed rose gold band. The oval cut lab-created blue sapphire is flanked by two pear shaped diamond accents.


This ring is the perfect embodiment of elegance in simplicity. It features a moissanite oval cut center stone set on four claw prongs. The yellow gold band has a trail of diamond accents that boldly bring out the timeless nature of the ring.


The first thing you notice with this piece is the extravagant yellow gold halo surrounding the oval cut emerald at the center. There’s just something about green and gold with a few moissanite accents that adds to the vintage feel Tim was looking for. The couple wanted a vintage feel while maintaining a chic minimalistic look, and we think they achieved the perfect balance, no?


If there’s a ring that could tell a perfect love story, it would be this one. Our couple wanted a reminder of their love every single time they looked at their rings. How, you ask? On a closer look, you will notice a peekaboo of a book and a burger on each side of the ring’s gallery to document different parts of their beautiful journey. The rose gold band embraces the oval cut opal set in an east-west direction and flanked by a trio of accent diamonds on each side.


You can never have too much sparkle on a ring, right? This bridal set features a purple oval cut center sapphire as its centerpiece. The beauty of the deep purple against the white gold band contrasts and effortlessly achieves that classic look this bride-to-be was striving for. The final touch? A cluster of diamond accents on either side of the sapphire, perfect for Christopher and Jamie who wanted a little bit of everything.


The final ring in our lineup not only features an oval cut moissanite, but also a white pearl both in a yellow gold band for a toi et moi effect. Something about the harmony between the shiny moissanite and glowing pearl just makes us say WOW.
