RING BUYING GUIDE
WHY CHOOSE A PEAR-SHAPED DIAMOND?
A blend of the best features of a round cut and a marquise cut, a pear-shaped diamond is said to represent an emotional bond or connection. The romantic, feminine curves balance out the bold point, making a pear-shaped engagement ring a popular choice for brides who value both individuality and timelessness.
Due to their elongated shape, pear-shaped diamonds also tend to appear larger than a round or princess cut diamond of the same carat weight. Since the cut is tricky to perfect, a quality cut pear-shaped diamond is also harder to come by than more popular cuts.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A PEAR-SHAPED DIAMOND
More than any other fancy shape, symmetry is an important characteristic of a pear-shaped diamond. Imagine drawing a line lengthwise down the middle of the diamond—both sides should look identical.
LENGTH TO WIDTH RATIO
The best length to width ratio is usually between 1.45 to 1.75 but is ultimately a matter of personal preference.
