Backes & Strauss
Oval Cut Diamonds

The Oval Diamond Cut was created by the Russian-born American diamond cutter Lazare Kaplan in the 1960's as a modified version of the brilliant cut. The result is a breath-taking diamond design popularly used in jewellery ranging from engagement rings to pendants. The creation of an Oval Cut diamond allows the diamond cutter to take advantage of the key attributes of a rough diamond and eliminate inclusions and blemishes in the process. Its elongated shape creates the illusion of greater size without incurring significant loss in fire and brilliance.
