FAQs about Pear Cut Engagement Rings

Fancy-cut diamonds account for only 25% of all engagement rings sold at Blue Nile, and pear-shaped diamonds account for only a portion of that. This makes pear-shaped diamond engagement rings stand out from the crowd. Teardrop engagement rings are also a wonderful choice for affordable ring styles. Fancy-cut stones, such as pear diamonds, can be less expensive by carat weight than other more traditional cuts.

A pear-shaped diamond ring is typically worn with the point aimed towards the fingertip and the round portion aimed at the palm, but the ring can be worn however the wearer prefers.

Pear diamonds are one of the nine fancy-cut shapes. Fancy-cut diamonds are up to 25% less expensive than round, brilliant-cut diamonds of the same carat weight and quality. This makes pear rings an affordable option that brings incredible sparkle.

Each diamond is unique, and pear-shaped diamond rings are no different. These stones are cut to maximise their best features, so no two stones are exactly alike. The length and width of the pear shape will vary from one stone to another. Check the diamond length-to-width ratio to determine if it will be short and wide or long and slender.

The unique shape of pear cut engagement rings can make a smaller carat weight look larger than the same weight in other stone types. Pear diamonds have a larger table and an elongated crown compared to round brilliant diamonds This makes pear-shaped rings appear larger than many other cuts which allows all sizes to shine. Our most popular pear-shaped diamond sizes for teardrop engagement rings range from 0.5 to 1.5 carats, though we offer these contemporary stones in many sizes both below and beyond this range.

There is no singular setting that’s the best fit for pear cut diamond rings. The unique teardrop shape shines in a variety of setting types and metals such as white gold, platinum, yellow gold and rose gold. Pear-shaped engagement rings are available in many different setting types including solitaire, halo, milgrain, micropavé, diamond accent, three-stone, two-tone and split shank pear rings. Pear cut engagement rings can be set with the main stone in either north-south or east-west orientation. A stone that is set north-south is the more traditional style and provides greater coverage on the finger. Setting the pear ring’s main stone in an east-west orientation is an emerging style for unique pear-shaped engagement rings. With so many settings to choose from, the best choice is the setting that matches the wearer’s personal style.

Generally speaking, pear-shaped diamond rings are less expensive than round engagement rings.

The elongated shape of pear cut engagement rings can make the ring look bigger. When set north-south, pear-shaped diamonds have greater coverage on the wearer’s finger. The larger surface area of pear diamond will make it look larger than other diamonds of the same weight.

Teardrop engagement rings match perfectly with many types of wedding rings. The unique stone shape is complemented by simple rings, eternity wedding bands and many other styles. For no gap between the pear ring and the wedding band, opt for matching sets or curved wedding rings.

When it comes to the 4Cs, colour is one of the most important considerations for a pear cut diamond ring. Pear-shaped diamonds are excellent at hiding many imperfections, but they can display more colour than other diamond types. It’s typically a good start to focus on a pear-shaped ring that’s colourless, near colourless or has an intentional fancy colour.

Yes, pear-shaped diamond rings deliver incredible sparkle. They are faceted for brilliance that shines from all angels.

Pear Cut Engagement Ring Review

Blue Nile made it simple!

When I first started to search for an engagement ring I really had no idea what I was looking at. I visited a few local jewellery stores and felt like I was being taken advantage of on price while also not being shown exactly what I wanted. I was able to create a custom ring at Blue Nile that is exactly what we wanted, not to mention, we were able to get a much larger diamond for our money. I wasn't hassled by anyone and the process was easy. Ordering online is the way to go!
