      Defining Traits

      The appearance of a pear shaped diamond can vary greatly. Keep an eye out for these important characteristics when shopping for a piece of jewelry that features an elusive pear shape:

      • Unique Appearance. Pear shaped diamonds combine the most beautiful aspects of round and marquise shapes. Their teardrop silhouette means they possess both a tapered end and a rounded end.
      • Perfect Proportions. The length to width ratio of a pear shaped diamond is incredibly important, as some ratios can be incredibly unbecoming. While it varies from person to person, studies show that most people prefer pear shaped gemstones with a length to width ratio of approximately 1.5.
      • Bow-Tie Effect. When not cut correctly, pear shaped diamonds can feature a dark, bow-tie shaped pattern in the center of the stone. This shadow is created by the stone’s facets and can greatly detract from its sparkle and overall appearance. Stones with a small shadow are ideal.
      • Setting Placement. Traditionally, pear shaped gemstones are meant to be worn with the tapered end pointing towards the wrist. With that said, modern women are choosing to wear them in a variety of ways, including in a sideways orientation.
