Pear Shaped Diamond Engagement Rings

A Pear Shaped diamond engagement ring is a unique hybrid of the round brilliant cut and Marquise cut diamond. Often called a teardrop cut, one end is perfectly round while the other narrows to the tapered point. This special ring is usually worn with the tapered end towards the fingernail, visually slimming the finger of the wearer. The 58 facets in this diamond allow for a similar brilliance to the round cut.

In the late 1400s, the diamond polishing wheel was created by Lodewyk van Berquem. This invention allowed him to optimize the light reflection of a stone by polishing the facets. His work also concentrated on the symmetry of the facets within a stone and led him to the first Pear-Shaped, "Briolette" or "Pendeloque" diamond cut. Over many centuries, the shape went through different phases to change the shape. In the early 1900s, the modern pear-shaped stone had evolved into the stone you see today.

Because of the shape of the diamond, inclusions and flaws may often be placed at the narrow point of the diamond. If the end is properly set with a prong, these inclusions will be nearly invisible. A prong on the sharp point will also help prevent chipping or breaking of the narrow tip. The elongated shape may suffer from a "bowtie effect", where a bowtie-shaped shadow may be seen in the wider, round end of the stone. This will vary by gemstone and can only be determined upon visual inspection of images or the stone itself. Symmetry is important in a pear shape. The tapered point should align with the center of the rounded end and each long side should mirror each other. The stone should not possess any rough, straight edges.
