The moval diamond is exactly what it sounds like – an elegant,
proportioned blending of a marquis cut diamond and an oval shaped
diamond. It is more elongated than a traditional oval cut, yet the ends still
hold a soft curve, unlike the defined points of a marquis cut stone.
Similar to the marquise, the moval diamond is an excellent choice for
someone looking to elongate their fingers, bring attention to their manicure
or simply have a different looking stone from the more common diamond
The moval diamond has found its way into several eras of jewelry-making,
from Edwardian to Art Deco, to the present day. Recently these stones
found their way into the Hamra Jewelers showroom in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In November 2017, The Pink Promise sold for 32.5 million at Christie’s in
Hong Kong, making it one of the 40 most expensive jewels sold at auction.
The ring was set with a 14.93 carat fancy vivid pink moval diamond with a
white diamond halo. The ring was described by Christie’s as “the Picasso
of the pink diamond world.”
