Many people look at them as an old-fashioned cut. Some people refer to them as a teardrop or raindrop shape. I think they have a classic look, especially on diamond earrings and diamond pendants. However, the real style winner is a classic pear diamond engagement ring. Most people wear the point facing out, but the choice is yours.
The pear in this ring is a beautiful shape. Many pears are too long or too wide. I don’t mind the ones that are too long, but too wide aren’t as pretty, in my opinion. I would rather have a perfect ratio of length to width like the one pictured. Our client designed this ring and we executed it in platinum. She loves it!
