An Oval lab diamond is a type of diamond that has been created in a lab, and is cut into an oval shape.
Here's more about it:
Shape and Cut: The oval shape is a beautiful, elegant cut that can make the diamond appear larger than other shapes of the same carat weight. The elongated shape of an oval diamond can also make fingers look longer and slimmer, which is why it's a popular choice for engagement rings.
Just like naturally mined diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are cut and polished to maximize their sparkle and brilliance. An oval diamond typically has 56 to 58 facets (the flat surfaces that reflect light), which give it its unique brilliance.
Lab-Grown: This diamond is made in a lab by scientists. They use high pressure and high temperature, or a special gas process, to create a diamond that's just like a natural one in every way – from its hardness to its sparkle. The only difference is where it comes from.
Advantages: Oval lab-grown diamonds have the same advantages as other lab-grown diamonds. They're usually more affordable than natural diamonds, and they're more environmentally friendly because they don't require mining. This also means they're free from the ethical issues that can sometimes come with mined diamonds.
Quality: Like any other diamond, an oval lab-grown diamond's quality is judged by the Four Cs - Carat (its weight), Clarity (how clear it is), Color (how colorless or yellow it is), and Cut (how well it's been cut from its rough form). You can ask for a grading report to understand its quality.
Overall, an oval lab-grown diamond is a stylish, sustainable, and more affordable option compared to its natural counterpart.
