Pear-Shaped Diamond Engagement Rings

The charming pear-shaped diamond ring is often called the teardrop cut due to the round sculpted bottom and pointed tip. This diamond is sort of a cross between the traditional round brilliant and a Marquis cut sparkler. It embodies the beauty and brilliance of both designs in one rare shape.

The Launch of the Pear-Shaped Diamond

Although the pear cut may seem edgy and modern, it traces back to 1458. The unique design was first crafted by Lodewyk van Berquem, a Flemish polisher. He is also well known for developing the concept of symmetry and facet placement in other sought-after diamond cuts. Without his innovation diamonds would not be cut in a way to achieve optimal sparkle and shine.

Celebrity Pear-Shaped Diamond Rings

Many famous people have rocked a pear-shaped diamond ring, including, Jessica Simpson, Victoria Beckham, Mia Farrow, and the most memorable shape worn by Elizabeth Taylor.

The pear-shaped diamond engagement ring presented to Liz from Richard Burton was 69.42-carats set in platinum. The legendary ring was purchased at auction in 1969 for $1.1 million. First named the “Cartier Diamond” it was renamed the “Taylor-Burton Diamond,” which it is still referred to today.

Eventually, Liz Taylor had the pear cut diamond rest into a necklace. She wore the enormous ornament to both the 42nd Academy Awards and the 40th birthday party for Princess Grace.

How to Wear a Pear-Shaped Diamond Ring

The pear-shaped diamond is a great cut for bold women who like to be noticed. It is a rare piece of jewelry that should be owned with confidence. The teardrop shape is most commonly used in earrings and necklaces.
When set in a diamond engagement ring, a pear-shaped cut can either be worn as a stunning solitaire or accented with side stones. Smaller pear-cut diamonds can be used as interesting accent stones.

It is important to select a setting with a secure prong at the tip of the teardrop. This will protect the most vulnerable part of the stone from chips, cracks and other damage.

Also, be sure to consider the perfect diamond color when browsing pear-shaped diamonds. Carat weight is not the only aspect to take into consideration with pear cuts. With this particular cut, anything over one carat may appear darker at the tip. This may prompt you to go up a color grade. It is helpful to consult with a trusted jeweler to find your perfect pear-shaped diamond ring.
