The magical pear cut...

With 58 facets the pear cut combines the brilliance of a round cut with the unique silhouette of a marquise cut. It can also be called teardrop shape due to its rounded bottom and pointed top.  



When choosing a pear cut diamond, it's important to consider the diamond's symmetry, as well as its colour and clarity. The point of the pear shape should be well-defined, and the shoulders of the diamond should be symmetrical. With its elongated shape, a pear cut diamond can make fingers appear longer and slenderer, making it a popular choice for engagement rings.

The pear cut diamond be set in a variety of ways, including as a solitaire, in a halo setting, or as the centerpiece of a three-stone ring. 

When selecting a pear cut diamond, it's important to consider the length-to-width ratio, which is the ratio of the length to the width of the diamond. A ratio of 1.50-1.75 is considered ideal for a pear-shaped diamond. Additionally, it's important to examine the symmetry of the diamond and ensure that the point is centered at the tip of the diamond.
