Also known as a teardrop, a pear cut is a hybrid of the oval and marquise styles. It dates back as early as the 1400s, so it’s a gorgeous choice for someone who loves vintage designs. Pear cuts also have the ability to make smaller carat weights look larger than they are, so if size is important, a pear cut is an excellent choice.
Our buying tip for a pear shaped diamond: Since pear cut diamonds have a tip, they are more vulnerable to chipping. We recommend settings that place a V-prong to cover up the sharpest point of the pear diamond.
Every diamond engagement ring in our collection is available in white gold, yellow gold or platinum and every design is available in all carat sizes.
