Do you want to have a bigger sparkle but a smaller out of pocket? The pear shape is the beautiful option to consider. Compare to the round diamond, you'll be saving thousands. Pear shape diamond engagement rings are seeing a resurgence, with or without halo style, the pear shape diamond will turn heads and remain its classic look for years.

A little research has determined that woman who choose the Pear shape diamond are said to be strong personalities and traditional romantics! Because the pear shape is more unique, it often represents the strong will, empowerment, independence, and unique style of its wearer. These stones are also said to symbolize tears of joy or wedding tears, both appropriate choices for an engagement ring.

An excellent or very good symmetry is important when choosing your pear shape diamond, the rounded top should not appear narrow or squat, but like a semi-circle; the upper and lower curves on the right and left side of the diamond should form uniform, symmetrical curves, with no straight edges.

With its 58 facets, the pear shape is more complicated than simpler cuts like the emerald and therefore doesn't require the same level of clarity. Its long and tapered shape has a slimming effect on your fingers. The pear shape diamond, like the round brilliant diamond, is faceted to deliver the most sparkle and brilliance. A pear shape diamond only a little over a carat may appear larger, with accented halo design it will shine down the isle... but never brighter than the bride.
