Pear Shaped Engagement Rings
Pear shaped engagement rings look like a teardrop and have a rounded end tapered that graduate into a single point. Its shape maximizes its carat weight. You can find them in a wide variety of styles, including sparkling sidestone rings and solitaires. It’s an eccentric design, which combines the uniqueness of a marquise shape and a round cut diamond. Teardrop engagement rings are gaining in popularity today and are an ideal way to commemorate your love.
Luster of Pear Shaped Engagement Rings
Pear shaped engagement rings symbolize love and the promise of a future together. There are several factors that make up a good pear cut diamond. The symmetry of the diamond’s facets, wide and depth. A good cut will reflect the dispersion of light, luster and brilliance of the stone. Typically, pear-shaped diamonds are cut with 58 facets, but they can have up to 72 facets. If the diamond-cutting process is not that good, a part in the middle of the stone can appear darker. It’s known as the “bowtie effect” and can be fixed. The pear-shaped diamond has attitude, yet it’s still feminine.
There’s much versatility with pear-shaped diamond engagement rings. Choose a solitaire in a classic setting, add colorful gemstones to it, go with clusters or go ornate with a vintage-inspired style. Whether it’s set in a rose, white or yellow gold, it makes an impact. But, if you like more drama, consider a double-shank band or a pave halo. Getting engaged is an exciting time. And pear-shaped diamonds add more excitement to the event.
