Oval cuts are a kind of round cut, but they have a more unique shape. Oval gem cuts were created in 1950s and they have a very brilliant shape with 58 facets. Oval cut can be described as a shape between round and marquise cut and it has 3 parts: Head or end, shoulder and belly.
This cut is mostly suitable for rings and makes the hand appear slimmer, that’s why many people like oval cut diamonds. It also seems larger to the eye because of its larger surface, compared to the round and marquise cut, also because they don’t have sharp angles, they are less at risk of chipping.
