Quality Characteristics of Pear Shaped Engagement Rings

Pear Shaped Engagement RingsPear shaped diamonds, also called a teardrop or pendeloque shape, is a fusion of round or oval and marquise shapes. One side of the stone is rounded (though it may be more oval-shaped depending on the exact proportions and the other side narrows to a fine point.

Quality characteristics of pear shaped diamond engagement rings include:

  • Perfect symmetry on both sides of the pear shape. One half should not appear larger than the other.

  • The tip of the diamond should be sharp, yet it should also be protected from damage by a v-shaped prong in the setting.

  • While three prongs can secure a pear shape, six is the ideal number for a firm grip.

  • The pear shape adds carat weight to the ideal round shape, and buyers should be certain that the weight is distributed evenly for a good shape rather than just adding useless bulk.

In addition to the quality characteristics specific to pear shaped stones, buyers should examine any diamond (including accent stones) for good quality in terms of color, cut, clarity, and carat.

The teardrop shape of a pear diamond is preferential for more jewelry than just the engagement ring. Pear shapes are popular for diamond earrings, particularly those that dangle, as well as for diamond pendants that may have one or more diamonds aligned in a hanging pattern.
