Pear Engagement Rings

Pear engagement rings arenít as popular as some other engagement ring styles. Maybe this is because the pear cut is mostly used for earrings and pendants. However, pear engagement rings have become more popular among engaged couples. Choosing the same engagement ring styles as everyone else can be boring. Couples who choose pear cut gems set themselves apart.

Gems cut into the pear shape look like small teardrops. In fact, the pear cut is often referred to as a teardrop shape. This shape is highly popular for pendants and earrings, and youíve probably seen it more than a few times. But now, itís not uncommon to see pear engagement rings as well. The elongated shape works well as a solitaire, and is usually not set with elaborate accent stones.

Some couples say that pear engagement rings create an illusion of slimmer fingers. So a person with chubby fingers would probably love the look created by the pear cut. The pear cut also works for those who want something different, but not too far off from tradition. The easiest way to find a pear shaped diamond is to use the fast and easy diamond search at the Novori web site. If you need help you can always call toll free 1-877-877-4141. We would be glad to help you find the perfect certified diamond for your ring.

The Origin of Pear Engagement Rings

The pear cut has been around longer than most people realize. It was invented in the 1400s by a Flemish gem cutter. Lodweyk van Berquem experimented with the concept of absolute symmetry, and thatís how the pear cut evolved.

The pear cut was originally known as the pendeloque shape. It never became popular because most people didnít like the way pear cut diamonds reflected light. Jewelers also believed that the shape was wasteful, since it required most of the gem to be cut away. You can understand why they felt this way.

To achieve the tapered bottom of the pear cut, one end of the gem has to be whittled away. Thatís normally not a good thing when it comes to shaping or cutting a gem. Thankfully, there have been major advances in jewelry techniques. The pear shape is now much easier to produce.

How to Recognize Pear Engagement Rings

Pear engagement rings are easy to spot. As mentioned earlier, the pear cut looks like a tiny teardrop. Itís actually a cross between the traditional round cut and the marquise cut. The top of the gem is round like a circle, but the bottom is tapered and has a fine point. If you look at a few pear cut gems, youíll notice that some ends are more pointed than others. This sharpness of the taper is usually determined by the tools used, and the style of the person cutting the gem.

The most notable benefit of pear engagement rings is the slimming effect. People with large fingers say it makes their fingers look smaller and slimmer. This may or may not be true for everyone. However, some people say wearing the tapered end upwards towards the nails creates a slimming effect. Likewise, wearing the tapered end downwards toward the wrist is believed to cancel the slimming effect. Depending on how sharp the taper is cut, it may also be uncomfortable to wear the sharp end pointing towards the wrist.
