Pear 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
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.
