- Pears are also called teardrop diamonds. And you can wear them two ways, with the point facing in or out.
- Just like Radiant cut diamonds, they’re diamond hybrids, a mixture between round cuts and marquise cuts.
- Pear cut diamonds are less popular than many other shapes, and because of that, they are significantly cheaper.
- Now the cons: Pear cut diamonds will always have a subtle bow tie shadow. So your goal will be trying to find the less pronounced ones. I would suggest sticking with the ranges from 58% to 64% for depth.
- When it comes to color, I suggest you stay with a G color diamond or above. For clarity, you can go as low as VS2 - SI1 clarity diamonds as long as you’re being careful about where the inclusions are positioned.
