Why are oval diamonds so popular?

Over the past couple of years, the oval diamond engagement ring was arguably the most popular design amongst Hollywood A-List celebrities. They are incredibly elegant and sophisticated in their appearance.

Oval diamonds are growing so quickly in popularity as they offer ladies a slightly different look, whilst maintaining the sparkle and brilliance of a traditional round solitaire diamond.

If you are looking for something that few other ladies in Japan own, then an oval diamond could be the perfect match for you.

Do oval diamonds really appear larger than round diamonds?

Oval diamonds have a larger surface area than traditional round diamonds - meaning if you looked at a 1 carat round and a 1 carat oval diamond next to one another, the oval would appear to be a slightly bigger carat size.

Many ladies looking to acquire the largest looking diamond possible are drawn towards the oval shape.

How do oval diamonds sparkle?

Ovals, like the traditional round, are also ‘modern brilliant cut’ diamonds meaning they have been cut and polished especially to give off as much brilliance, fire and scintillation as possible. (You could think of this as all the diamond's combined sparkle).

An excellently cut oval diamond will sparkle spectacularly across all its facets. The best way to guarantee you end up with the brightest diamond available, is to allow Kensington Diamonds to hand select you an oval with ideal cut proportions.

How are oval diamonds priced in comparison to other diamond shapes?

Oval diamonds and round diamonds are priced very similarly, meaning that ovals are the highest price per carat of the 'fancy' diamond shapes.

They are an extremely desirable shape, that are rare to see in Japan.

Why are yellow diamonds usually cut into an oval shape, and rarely ever round?

Oval diamonds have a large, wide open face (or 'table' as its known in GIA certifying terms) which means it is regarded as one of the best shapes to showcase a diamond's natural coloring. Rounds have smaller tables, hence do not refract these beautiful shades of colored light as well.

For this reason - Fancy, Fancy Intense, or Fancy Vivid yellow diamonds are usually cut and polished into either a oval or a cushion shape.

Why do I need to be wary of a 'bow tie' effect in oval diamonds?

Because of the way that oval diamonds are cut, there can sometimes be an uneven distribution of light, which casts a noticeable, dark shadow across the mid-section of the diamond.

Kensington Diamonds will select you an oval where the bow tie is largely invisible, and instead blends nicely into the sparkle of the diamond.

I want to use oval diamonds for a necklace or pair of earrings, is this ok?

Kensington Diamonds prides itself on being able to hand craft your perfect piece, whatever you are dreaming of. To get started, simply get in touch with us and we will be absolutely delighted to get your bespoke idea started as soon as possible.

If you are interested in making an appointment then please get in touch now, and we will be delighted to welcome you soon.

Do you take precautions to stop the spread of Covid?

When you visit our showroom, you won’t need to interact with any other clients - it will just be your group and our diamond specialist, for a one-on-one consultation.

We always wear a face mask, keep a safe distance where possible, and take the utmost responsibility to clean and sterilise the office between client appointments.

Can I do a zoom appointment instead of visiting the showroom myself? Or can I buy online?

All our products are available to buy online through our e-commerce store.

However given the expensive, and sometimes bespoke nature of the beautiful products at hand - we understand most clients would like to see the diamonds with their own eyes before committing to purchase.

If for whatever reason you would prefer to arrange a consultation online instead of coming to our showroom yourself, we would be more than happy to facilitate this by scheduling an online Zoom call at your convenience.

What is your returns/cancellation policy?

After ordering your selected diamond, we offer all clients an appointment to visit our showroom and see the diamond for yourself. If for whatever reason it turns out to not be what you were expecting, there is no obligation to continue with the purchase and we will happily help you find an alternative from our other diamonds in stock, or cancel the transaction.

Upon confirming you want to proceed with the diamond purchase, customers are expected to pay a 50% deposit of the sale price immediately, and the remaining 50% upon collection of the finished piece.

A non-refundable 10% cancellation fee shall apply during the acceptable cancellation period of 48 hours after payment of the initial deposit. However due to the hand made, bespoke nature of our products - after 48 hours the sale cannot be cancelled and is considered final.

We always operate in good faith and aim to work with our customers to find a solution to any problem, however refunds will be made at Kensington Diamonds own discretion.

Do You Offer free resizing?

Classic platinum rings can be easily resized and we offer this service to our clients free of charge.

However care should be taken when ordering eternity rings or engagement rings containing a significant number of side-stones, as resizing may be more difficult and require re-setting.

If you are buying for a surprise gift for your partner, and do not know his/her ring size in advance - get in touch and we will do everything we can to help you find the correct size.

How long does it usually take to receive my finished product?

We aim to complete every piece within one month of ordering, as standard.

However if you are creating a custom design which will require a bespoke mould - the date of completion will likely be 5-6 weeks.

Regardless, if you are in a hurry or really need your piece to be finished by a specific date, we will happily work with you and offer options which can be delivered quicker if required.

Do you do ring repairs, or jewelry remakes for older pieces?

Kensington Diamonds only offers jewelry remakes, or ring repairs of pieces that we have created for a client. Unfortunately we do not commit to work with pieces created by other brands.
