A Pear cut diamond is a fancy shape that resembles tears of joy. Its asymmetrical form is accentuated in a Halo engagement ring setting. Pear cut Halo engagement rings also have a vintage appeal that’s perfect for those wanting an heirloom-inspired look.
A Pear cut Solitaire engagement ring spotlights this romantic and symbolic shape to perfection. The dramatic point and soft curve are highlighted in a Classic or Signature Solitaire setting for a modern-yet-timeless look that will last a lifetime.
The Pear’s unique form already has a vintage look and feel. When highlighted in vintage-inspired settings, it becomes an instant family heirloom. Try Art Deco favorites like the Halo or Bezel, or feature a trio of Pear cut diamonds in a Duet, Signature V, or Hover setting for a vintage look you’ll adore.
The curves, points, and meaning of this fancy shape are accentuated in a Three Stone Pear cut engagement ring. Choose a trio of Pears or mix with side stones of a different shape for a look that is symbolic and as unique as your love story.
A Pear cut diamond pairs perfectly with modern and elegant engagement ring settings. Consider highlighting this shape in a Two Tone or Hidden Halo setting, or select an East-West Solitaire or Bezel engagement ring for a slight twist on a timeless look.
Frequently asked questions about pear cut engagement rings
Because of its elongated shape, dramatic peak, and asymmetrical form, a Pear cut engagement ring can be worn in different ways. Many choose a traditional north-west (or vertical) setting, and wear the engagement ring so that the peak points up the finger. Turning the ring so that the peak points down is also an option, especially in Signature V or Hover settings.
Another way to wear a Pear cut ring is in an east-west (horizontal) setting. The Pear will appear to wrap around the top of your finger, creating a bold and abstract look. Choose to wear your own Pear cut engagement ring in the way that is most beautiful and comfortable to you.
The Pear cut ring can pose a unique challenge when it comes to creating a wedding ring set. Its elongated shape and point can bump up against or scratch an additional ring, depending on the setting.
When it comes to a traditional Pear solitaire engagement ring, it’s important to choose bands that will pair flush. Round, Flat, or Infinity bands are usually slim enough to line up with the ring with ease.
An open-cuff design can often fit nicely around the pointed edge of a Pear diamond. But the slight dip of the Chevron band or dramatic plunge of a Signature V band are ideal and a popular choice for stacking with this shape.
You can match your Pear shaped engagement ring with a wedding ring based on style or metal color. For Solitaire, Halo, Toi et Moi, or Three Stone engagement rings, for example, choose a petit Eternity, Infinity, or Devotion band in matching platinum or solid gold for the perfect pair.
For certain engagement settings, like the Signature V or Curator, consider pairing with their matching wedding band styles.

Choosing a Pear shaped diamond engagement ring means that you are romantic and whimsical. The Pear is a fancy shape, which differentiates it from the traditional Round. Pear engagement rings are for individuals who want to stand apart with a diamond shape true to their dramatic or flirtatious nature.
Pear shaped diamonds and Teardrop diamonds are the exact same thing. The two names are interchangeable. A Teardrop engagement ring is the same as a Pear shaped diamond engagement ring. Many jewelry brands will choose which name they use for their inventory. VRAI refers to Teardrop diamonds as Pear.
