Some celebrities choose to announce a wedding via publicist, or cash in by selling their wedding photos to a tabloid, but not Margot Robbie.
The Aussie beauty, also known as antihero Harley Quinn in last year’s hit Suicide Squad, chose to cheekily tell the world about her marriage to actor Tom Ackerley via Instagram. In the joyful, uncontrived post she flips her ring finger at the camera to reveal a sparkling pear-shaped diamond, while she and her new husband kiss in the background.
And what about that diamond? Robbie’s stunning ring is both classically beautiful and distinctive, like the woman who wears it. It showcases a sparkling pear-shaped diamond, set on a delicate band embellished with glittering pavé diamonds.
A Primer on Pear Diamond Rings
Also called a “teardrop” shape, a pear diamond is a modified take on a round brilliant diamond, which means that it possesses 58 facets and the same breathtaking sparkle. Although you can wear a pear diamond ring however you want, the traditional way is to slip it on so that the pointy tip of the diamond is directed toward your finger nail rather than your hand. Pear diamond engagement rings are very flattering, as the shape elongates the look of your finger.
If you adore pear diamond rings like Margot Robbie’s, discover some similar designs. All are made of ethically sourced diamonds and feature eco-friendly recycled precious metals.
The Pear Petite Shared Prong
As with Margot’s ring, the Petite Shared Prong Ring design showcases a dazzling pear-shaped diamond, accented with the incandescent shimmer of pavé set accent diamonds. The center diamond appears to float just above the delicate band.
The Pear Waverly Ring
In a slightly more glamorous take on Robbie’s beautiful design, the Waverly Ring embraces the center diamond in a halo of scalloped pavé diamond accents. A chic claw-prong setting adds a subtle designer detail.
The Pear Luna Ring
If you’d like to pair the eye-catching curves of a pear-shaped diamond with a more minimalist setting, consider the Luna Ring. This solitaire design features a contemporary bezel setting, slightly elevated so that light reaches the diamond from all angles.
The Pear Willow Ring
The nature-inspired Willow Ring combines the curves of a pear diamond with a curving setting that evokes vines and branches. Marquise diamond buds twinkle alongside the center gemstone.
The Pear Hudson Ring
A pear diamond looks regal set in the vintage-inspired Hudson Ring, which is embellished with intricate hand-engraved scrollwork along the band and delicate milgrain detailing at the edges.
