Why Pear Shaped Diamond Engagement Rings Are So Popular

Everybody loves a celebrity engagement, and it’s these people we must thank for bringing focus and attention back to the pear-shaped diamond. In fact, many are saying that 2018 is the year of the pear-shaped diamond ring!

The revival in popularity of the pear-shaped diamond can be attributed to the growing number of A-list of celebrities wanting to move away from the mainstream (traditional round solitaire diamond) rings in favour of something different. Its popularity can also be attributed to its set of unique characteristics that lend to the exquisite aesthetics and charm of this shape.

The history of the pear shape goes back to the 1400s, when Lodewyk van Berquem, the Flemish innovator of the diamond-polishing wheel, cut a pendeloque-shaped diamond. The pear-shaped diamond features a curved bottom with a pointed top – a shape that also resembles a teardrop, hence its alternative name, the teardrop diamond.

Advantages of pear-shaped diamond cut rings:

Besides wanting a unique shape as a centrepiece in the jewellery they wear, what are the other reasons the pear-shape has been brought back into popularity? There are several advantages to pear-shaped diamond rings, including:

  • It's a versatile stone shape that’s easily complemented by other shapes such as smaller round-shaped stones in an elegant custom design.
  • Its rounded bottom with narrow top shape works well with the nesting and stacking rings style. In addition to this, this cut in style can be matched with any design setting.
  • Its pear-shaped cut allows for the diamond stone to appear bigger than actual size when placed in an engagement ring setting.
  • A pear cut diamond may reflect a darker colour, but it will offer better clarity, creating an amazingly beautiful stone.
  • It has a detailed structure and shape that naturally draws the eye and the attention of admirers.
