Trying to decide between an Oval and a Round cut solitaire. I’m going for the 2-2.5 carat range.
I searched around in some local jewlery stores and they only had the round cut, I can’t seem to find an Oval cut in the size i’m looking for.
If you have a preference or an oval cut then I would love to see it! Morganite, Moissy, and Diamond are all welcome 🙂

oval! But I’m not biased or anything 🙂

I LOVE oval cut diamonds. I was dead-set on getting an oval diamond until my jeweller put an oval next to a round cut (cut, colour, clarity all pretty much the same) and the oval looked dull next to it. It also looked yellow compared to the diamond (both were rated colourless).
Find a jeweller who has oval cuts in a smaller size check it out next to a comparable round diamond! But make sure you compare them side by side to see the difference. They will have to probably track down an oval in that size for you, but at least you can see the difference on a smaller scale. Only you can decide if you can live with the difference. I ended up going with round diamonds.

Depends what you are getting. I would loooove a 2ct oval diamond but if you are getting a moissy I would get a OEC round

I have an 3.28 ct oval sapphire, but when you compare that size to a diamond it’s between a 2-2.5 ct, so the size is what you are going for. I LOVE ovals 🙂
