Pear shaped engagement rings look like a teardrop and have a rounded end tapered that graduate into a single point. Its shape maximizes its carat weight. You can find them in a wide variety of styles, including sparkling sidestone rings and solitaires. It’s an eccentric design, which combines the uniqueness of a marquise shape and a round cut diamond. Teardrop engagement rings are gaining in popularity today and are an ideal way to commemorate your love.
Pear shaped engagement rings symbolize love and the promise of a future together. There are several factors that make up a good pear cut diamond. The symmetry of the diamond’s facets, wide and depth. A good cut will reflect the dispersion of light, luster and brilliance of the stone. Typically, pear-shaped diamonds are cut with 58 facets, but they can have up to 72 facets. If the diamond-cutting process is not that good, a part in the middle of the stone can appear darker. It’s known as the “bowtie effect” and can be fixed. The pear-shaped diamond has attitude, yet it’s still feminine.
There’s much versatility with pear-shaped diamond engagement rings. Choose a solitaire in a classic setting, add colorful gemstones to it, go with clusters or go ornate with a vintage-inspired style. Whether it’s set in a rose, white or yellow gold, it makes an impact. But, if you like more drama, consider a double-shank band or a pave halo.
Getting engaged is an exciting time. And pear-shaped diamonds add more excitement to the event.
