Oval shape stone jewellery has been some of the most popular and elegant jewellery choices for thousands of years. Oval shape stones have a long and intricate history, and can be seen in collections as early as ancient jewellery. Vintage oval engagement rings and jewellery are highly sought after jewellery pieces, for both their beauty and their value. 

What defines an oval shape stone has changed over time. Gemstones have been fashioned into an oval shape for hundreds of years, the modern oval shape stone wasn’t invented until the 1950s. The earliest oval shape stones were often fashioned through polishing techniques, rather than cutting techniques. Oval shape stones can sometimes be considered between a round diamond and a Marquise, and they often are made using round brilliant cutting techniques. No matter the type of oval shape stone, antique and vintage oval engagement rings have retained their high popularity throughout the centuries. 

In ancient and early jewellery, oval shape stone jewellery often used a natural cabochon stone. 

When antique oval shape stone jewellery uses natural cabochon oval stones, it produces a unique and natural beauty that is still sought after even hundreds of years later.

Some of the most popular types of oval shape stone jewellery features the highly renowned star sapphires and rubies, as their natural asterism and shine has enthralled jewellery enthusiasts throughout the ages. 

However, the modern oval shape stone as we know it today would start to appear during the 1700s. In the 1700s, the brilliant faceting style started to emerge, and early brilliant cuts were made into round and oval shape stones. Diamonds were not often referred to as shapes during this period, however, by the 1800s the first mention of oval shape stones were seen in literature. 

The modern oval shape stone as we know it today was invented by the Russian-born diamond cutter, Lazare Kaplan. In 1958, he designed the modern oval shape stone cut, which resulted in him being inducted into the Jewellers International Hall of Fame. This invention popularised oval diamond rings, and vintage oval engagement rings from that period are extremely popular even today.

This is because the surface area of oval shape stones is larger than other stone cuts, meaning that they are often a more economical choice. If you’re looking for a stunning stone that optimises its carat weight, you should consider looking at vintage oval engagement rings.
