  Teardrop Pearl:  
  Teardrop pearls are off-round, typically more pear-shaped. Teardrop pearls are commonly used as a dangling part of earrings or necklaces, but they can also be drilled through the center and strung like round pearls.

The word teardrop is also sometimes used to describe a pear-shaped diamond.
