Pear-Shaped Diamonds

Pear-shaped (or “teardrop”) diamonds feature one rounded end and one sharply pointed end, a mix of the round brilliant and marquise shapes. Suited to those with a cutting-edge style, these distinct diamonds are one of the most modern choices for engagement rings. They are also the most versatile diamond shapes available; pear diamonds can be worn with the tip of the teardrop pointing toward the wearer’s fingernails or toward the palm—and are sometimes even mounted sideways.

Pear-Shaped Diamonds - The 4 C’s

Cut —The shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, while the cut refers to how well the diamond’s features interact with light. Because pear diamonds are a “fancy” cut, they are not graded. However, when you look at a pear diamond, it should have close to the same sparkle that a round brilliant-cut diamond would.

Clarity — Like many fancy-cut diamonds, pear diamonds need to be scrutinized for clarity, or the number of inclusions and blemishes in a stone. Each diamond will have a different amount of these flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the largest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). Pear-cut diamonds have the tendency to show a bow-tie effect—a shadow in the center of the diamond. Similar to oval diamonds, this is just a talking point to discuss with one of our diamond experts.

Color — When it comes to diamonds, color refers to the absence of color. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). Like most fancy shapes, pear diamonds retain their color, making it more obvious if the color is on the warmer side of the scale. If your loved one prefers whiter diamonds, stick to H or higher color grades.

Carat — When it comes to diamonds, color refers to the absence of color. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). Like most fancy shapes, pear diamonds retain their color, making it more obvious if the color is on the warmer side of the scale. If your loved one prefers whiter diamonds, stick to H or higher color grades.

Buyers Tips for Pear-Shaped Diamonds

Your loved one can already achieve versatile looks by switching which way she wears her teardrop, but pear diamonds are even more personalized than that: she can also have the exact pear shape that fits her aesthetic. Pear diamonds come in modified shapes, from slightly longer to elongate her finger, to slightly squatter for a bolder look. Whichever style she prefers, ensure her stone lies within a length-to-width ratio of about 1.4–1.7 to ensure it isn’t too narrow or too squat.


Lab-Grown Pear-Shaped Diamonds

When you compare lab-grown diamonds with mined diamonds, you will look for the same qualities in clarity, color, and carat. The two types of stones have identical chemical constructions and appearances—though because lab-grown pear diamonds rely on a shorter supply chain, they are priced 20-30% lower. Use that extra breathing room to further personalize her ring with an intricate setting, or even add a carat to the center stone and take her breath away.

Often confused with cut, the shape of a diamond is the physical appearance that it takes. The most popular shape is the round brilliant.
The cut of a diamond determines how effectively light that enters the stone is refracted within and reflected back through the top of the diamond, providing sparkle. The best cut grade is defined as Ideal, followed by Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Fair. Fancy shape stones often do not receive cut grades and will be listed as 'None.'
Carat refers to the actual weight of a diamond and is a unit of measure equal to 0.2 grams. In all diamonds, carat weight is a large contributor to the price of the stone.
The color in diamonds is actually the absence of color, graded on an alphabetical scale from D to Z, with D being a colorless diamond and Z being yellow.
Clarity measures the amount of inclusions or imperfections found in a diamond. The best clarity is VVS1 followed by VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, and SI2. Although other levels of clarity exist, we only carry diamonds with quality we can stand behind.
