Thought I wanted a round solitaire.
Thought I wanted a ruby.
Thought I wanted a 3 stone.
Thought I wanted a princes halo.
My Fiance is very patient, but I want a ring before we get married in june! Haha my mom just got engaged and she has an oval Sapphire! We both have short fat fingers so she suggested I try it on because she thinks the shape flatters our fingers. So I did. And I’m in love!
Please post pics of your ovals! (Finger size and mm would be appreciated)

I don’t remember the exact mm, but it’s a 2.04 ct center stone. Finger size 5.75

My center diamond is an oval although the overall shape of my ring is a rectangular cushion shape. I think it’s very flattering on my short fingers. So keep in mind that any elongated shaped stone would probably have the same effect, like rectangular radiants, elongated cushions, emerald cuts, etc…so even more options lol
Here’s my 1.01 carat oval brilliant diamond, it measures 7.98×5.71×3.48 with a length to width ratio of 1.4, my ring size is a 3.5

My engagement ring has a 1.75 carat oval diamond. It measures 9.6×6.5 mm. It’s a size 6.5, i have very long fingers though. I changed my mind a lot too, I know how tough it can be to narrow down.

another oval sapphire in a diamond halo (: (lighting in the pic is terrible – the stone is not so “navy” IRL)
EDIT: finger size is 6.5, and oval is 8mm x 6mm in a 1.8mm halo

mandaluv1119: your diamond looks so much bigger than .6 carats! Looks like it’s a 1 carat! So beautiful!

ohmygoodgollygosh: I hear you! I thought I wanted a pear with halo, then a 3 stone, then I tried on an oval and that was it!
The centre is 0.79 sapphire, I’m a 6.25 🙂

ohmygoodgollygosh: .74 ct center stone in a french pavé halo, on a 2 mm band. Finger size is about 7.75 I think. I have short, chubby fingers as well and the oval shape is definitely the most flattering I’ve tried on! Basically any elongated shape (or round) works well and I also found that having som space on both sides of the diamond makes your finger look slimmer 🙂
