One of the most popular of the fancy shape diamonds is the pear shape diamond which has a modified brilliant style cut with an elongated point that often creates the appearance of being larger in size than its carat weight suggests. The pear cut is the most expensive of the fancy shape diamonds but that is is just reflecive of its timeless elegance and unique brilliance. Along with sharing a similarity with the Oval and Marquise cut it also shares much similarity with the image of a ‘teardrop’, and hence the term ‘teardrop diamond’. The pear cut is a perfect combination of the round brilliant and marquise, with a rounded end on one and a tapering point on the other. A pear cut diamond when set in a ring gives a feminine touch and an elongated look to the finger.
The Significant Features of Pear Cut Diamond:
The first pear cut diamond was introduced in the 1400s by a Flemish polisher, Lodewyk (Louis) vanBerquem of Brugge, Belgium. He was the inventor of the diamond-polishing wheel or what is also known as the scaif.
Being the modified version of the round brilliant cut, the pear shape diamond features 58 facets. The standard ratio is between 1.50 and 1.70. A narrow pear cut is ideal for dangle earrings whereas a wider pear cut is best suited for a solitaire ring. The pointed end of a pear cut diamond should always be covered and secured with a prong to give it the much needed support to prevent chipping.
The bow-tie effect is a common phenomenon in a pear cut diamond and they may vary from near invisible to very deep. A dark bow-tie effect on your pear cut diamond is definitely avoidable by selecting an exceptional cut pear shape diamond with an internationally accredited diamond certificate and the assistance of a diamond expert. The pear cut diamond has another issue which should in all possibilities be avoided; the issue of ‘uneven shoulders’. It refers to the uneven curve of the rounded end of the diamond. If one side of the rounded end is more protruded than the other, the value of the diamond is automatically lost.
