Since 1 carat ovals are one of the most popular engagement ring styles, its no wonder they are some of our best selling rings. They are super affordable, look great on anyone, and they will never go out of style. You really can’t go wrong with a 1 carat oval. They can be paired with many different style bands or worn alone for a classic look. Ovals also have an elongating effect on someones finger and therefore create the appearance of beautiful lengthly fingers.
The Price Is Right
A 1 carat diamond is great choice when you are on a budget. They are pretty affordable for most budgets but tend to look bigger so you can still purchase a really beautiful diamond for a good price. It is very easy to find a 1 carat oval for under $4,000 that is a good quality diamond. You can even add a halo or some side stones to your 1 carat oval ring to make the diamond stand out more or look larger. These additions often cost less than going up in carat weight and therefore can give you more bang (or bling) for your buck.
One For the Ages
Being one of the most timeless designs, it’s no wonder 1 carat ovals are so popular. A 1 carat oval ring from 100 years ago would still look just as good in modern times. Its such a versatile look that can be worn many different ways since the center stone isn’t too large and flashy. Wear it alone for a classic and subdued look or stack it up with other rings for a fun look that is interchangeable. We love a simple 1 carat oval solitaire with our Twilight and Vega bands.
1 Carat Ovals We Love
Anita: A tasteful & minimal ring. This 1 carat solitaire combines the beauty of an oval and a marquise shaped diamond. Its narrow and elongated shape makes it extremely flattering on the hand and elongates the finger.
Rosie: A 1 carat oval with a shimmering halo and accent diamonds along the shank. A small pave diamond is bezel set in the middle of its cathedral setting. This luxe and detailed ring looks so high end and expensive but is actually super affordable.
Dior: This is one of our best selling rings, and its easy to see why. This pave setting with a one carat diamond really makes an impact. It sparkles from all angles and even has a hidden halo for a little surprise of shimmer underneath. This ring would look great on anyone and works for any style.
Nita: This classic 1 carat oval with a twist is perfect for anyone looking for a simple looking ring but with a more unique edge. The east to west setting makes this ring super unique making anyone who sees it want to take a closer look. This ring is also perfect for stacking with tons of other rings.
Ayla: A 1 carat oval shaped diamond sits front and center paired with two whimsical 0.15 carat pear shaped diamonds on each side. The side stones really make the center stone stand out and make this ring super sparkly. This ring also has a low profile setting and would pair perfectly with our U shape wedding band.
You really can’t go wrong with a 1 carat oval diamond. It’s the most versatile ring choice that would make anyone happy with a look that will last a lifetime.
