1 Carat oval engagement ring and diamond engagement ring is a traditional, simple & classic design that will never go out of style. The oval shape is quite popular as a 1 carat size appears visually larger than the equivalent 1 carat round shape. The shape is flattering, since it elongated the finger appearance. Lab diamond rings are growing in popularity as people learn more about them and they are a very affordable option to a natural diamond. Lab grown diamonds have all the same physical and optical properties as a natural diamond are hold their value just as natural diamonds do (See article from the Gemological Institute of America below).

♡ ARTICLE FROM GIA ON LAB GROWN DIAMONDS:
Two specimens of faceted crystalized carbon - both are crystal clear and give off a kaleidoscope of spectral colors in direct light. They appear to be identical. One, however, is a billion or more years old and the other was recently grown in a laboratory.
Both are diamonds, of course. The first is a natural diamond created by forces deep within the young Earth. The second is from a laboratory and possesses essentially the same chemical, physical and optical properties as its natural counterpart.
Diamond – the material, not the gem – is a mineral consisting of “essentially pure carbon crystalized in the isometric cubic system,” according to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which develops trading guides for the gem and jewelry industry.
Although the FTC says diamonds are essentially pure carbon, the vast majority of natural diamonds contain trace amounts of other substances, particularly nitrogen, which gives them a yellow color or (rarely) boron, which imparts a blue color. In addition, they usually contain inclusions, tiny bits of foreign material that were trapped in the still-forming diamond millions of years ago.
Laboratory-grown diamonds (also sometimes referred to as man-made or synthetic diamonds) entered the gem and jewelry market in commercial quantities about five years ago. Although identical in appearance to natural diamonds, they have very subtle differences that can only be detected by trained gemologists and sophisticated equipment designed for that purpose.
