A pear engagement ring has one pointed end and one rounded end, resembling a teardrop. The pear shaped diamond is also referred to as the "pendeloque" cut, which originated in the 17th century. It is a popular choice for engagement rings, as it offers a unique and elegant look.

Pear shaped diamonds offer several benefits that make them a popular choice for engagement rings. Here are a few benefits that come with choosing a pear shaped diamond:

  • The elongated shape of the pear diamond creates an illusion of a longer and slimmer finger.
  • It has a larger surface area than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight, making it appear bigger.
  • The tapered point of the pear shape adds a unique and elegant touch to the ring.
  • The cut of a pear shaped diamond can hide any inclusions or flaws in the lower half of the stone, making it a great choice for those who are budget-conscious but still want a high-quality diamond.

Here are five tips for choosing a pear shaped diamond:

  • Look for a diamond with a good cut, which will maximize its brilliance and fire.
  • Choose a length-to-width ratio that suits your preference.
  • Consider the color and clarity of the diamond. A near-colorless diamond with few inclusions will provide the best value.
  • Think about the setting you want. A prong setting will showcase the diamond's unique shape, while a halo setting will make it appear larger.
  • Work with a reputable jeweler who can provide you with a selection of high-quality diamonds and offer guidance on choosing the right one for your budget and style.
When it comes to choosing the best setting for a pear-shaped engagement ring, there are several options to consider. The prong setting is widely favored, as it uses a set of prongs to securely hold the diamond in place, allowing its unique shape to shine. For those seeking added protection, a bezel setting is an excellent choice, as it encases the diamond in a metal rim, providing both security and peace of mind. If you desire a more intricate design, a halo setting might be the perfect fit. This style surrounds the pear-shaped diamond with smaller diamonds, creating a stunning halo effect that enhances the center stone's brilliance. Lastly, for those who appreciate elegance and uniqueness, a split shank setting offers a sophisticated touch. The band splits as it reaches the center stone, resulting in a distinctive and eye-catching look.
