Oval Shaped Brilliant

The Oval Shaped Brilliant is very similar to a Round except it is elliptical. It was invented by Lazare Kaplan in the early 1960s. The Oval brilliant usually has 56 facets. "Shape Appeal" is very important with Oval brilliants.

What to watch out for:
Shape appeal. Uneven shoulders, high shoulders. A poor cut in an Oval shape is most often detectable by the "bow-tie effect" which is judged by the unaided eye.
