The versatile oval cut sits as seamlessly in a bold and gold statement ring as it does a time-honoured style. This means that there are several setting options available to you, but by the paradox of choice it does not mean this is necessarily easier.

We've grouped our most popular settings below by personal style to help you refine your oval cut engagement ring design.

Four claw traditional oval cut diamond engagement ring with 18ct yellow gold ring band

If clean and classic is your style, four simple claws around the oval cut diamond will be a seamless match for your style. Talon claws - prongs that taper to a fine point - are Rachel’s signature and have a minimal, refined appearance.



Vintage inspired bespoke engagement ring featuring an oval cut diamond set with double claws and delicate round diamond side stones.

Mid century inspired engagement ring with vintage details of double claws around this classic oval cut diamond.

Double claws add a touch of vintage detailing that echoes the history of the oval cut diamond. They are a beautiful addition to an intricate engagement ring, and take on their own uniquely decorative appearance when added as the primary detailing around the diamond.



Split platinum and gold bezel set oval cut engagement ring.

The devil is in the detail here. Subtle changes can transform a ring from a classic style to a more modern engagement ring. Choosing 6 claws over 4 will feel less expected, while a split platinum and gold rubover setting as opposed to a single metal feels really fresh and contemporary.


All of the designs featured in this post, other than the linked Yasmin and Perseus Oval, were bespoke engagement rings.
