Pear-shaped diamonds, also known as teardrop diamonds, are renowned for their brilliant sparkle and eye-catching form. This diamond cut combines the best attributes of round and marquise shapes, featuring a shimmering 58-facet design and distinctive curves that come to a single point. The beauty of this style lies in its fusion of sharp edges and rounded curves, resulting in exceptional brilliance.
Moreover, the elongated form of pear-cut diamonds makes them appear larger than their carat weight. When worn in an engagement ring, this diamond cut offers a flattering effect, making the fingers of the wearer appear longer and slimmer. Pear-shaped diamonds also look stunning in pendants and earrings. While the choice ultimately depends on personal preference, experts often recommend a length-to-width ratio of 1.45 to 1.75 for pear-cut diamonds.
It is crucial to note that pear-shaped diamonds are more susceptible to chipping due to their pointed tips. A prong setting will offer the safeguarding you need to secure the tip of your diamond and prevent damage. Halo settings also provide protection and accentuate the size of your diamond.
