About pear shaped engagement rings
For decades, pear shaped diamonds have adorned the fingers of the most chic and stylish brides-to-be. The stone shape is characterised by its elongated design and curved edges. It was originally referred to as a teardrop shape, representing the strong emotional bond between the giver and lucky recipient.
The pear cut helps distribute the carat weight of the diamond helping to create a larger and more eye-catching engagement ring. The rounded design also helps accentuate the brilliance of the stone, creating a beautiful sparkle whilst the elongated and curved edges flatter all shapes and sizes.
In many cases, pear cut diamond engagement rings can be worn with the pointed edge facing up towards the finger nail, or down towards the knuckle, it is entirely up to personal preference, enabling each bride-to-be to customise the style of their dream ring.
