The Oval Cut Diamond's technical name is "oval modified brilliant," based upon its shape and modifications of the traditional round, brilliant configuration.
The oval cut diamond was invented in the early 1960s.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND CUTTING ISSUES
A length-to-width ratio of 1.5:1 is almost universally considered a pleasing shape for ovals, with any variation beyond 1.4:1 or 1.6:1 beginning to be noticeable and becoming an aesthetic issue.
As with all fancy diamonds, however, a certain degree of individual taste is always factored into the desirability of a particular diamond's shape. Fifty-six facets are typical for oval brilliant diamonds.
