The right way to wear a pear shape ring
May 6, 2022 • 3 min read
Pear cut engagement rings are becoming more popular and are one of the most desired fancy cut diamonds on the market. As a modern shape that is distinct and elegant, it is a unique diamond cut that many favours.
If you’ve recently been proposed to with a stunning pear-shaped engagement ring or are looking at one yourself, let us help you decipher the right way to wear a pear-shaped ring.
Pear-shaped engagement rings
True to its name, the pear cut diamond has a pear silhouette, with a large bottom and a slim, pointed top. Also known as a teardrop cut, it is identical to a tear or water droplet figure.
As it is a fancy cut, it is a hybrid of two diamond shapes, the brilliant round and marquise. This gives it its unbalanced look of a thin pointed top and rounded bottom. Due to its elongated body, this cut appeals to those with thicker fingers as it is a flattering cut that gives the illusion of slender fingers.
Inherited from its brilliant round influence, pear diamonds offer a desired sparkle and brilliance that other fancy cuts cannot offer. This fancy cut features 58 facets and oozes brilliance and an enchanting sparkle.
The common way to wear the pear shape
Unlike a balanced cut such as a round engagement ring, your pear shape’s look will change depending on how it is worn. So which way should is it? Up or down?
The most common way to wear a pear shape is to have the top pointing upwards to your fingertips, with the round bottom towards the hand. This gives it the upright figure of a falling teardrop or pear standing up.
However, it is essential to note that this is just the popular direction to wear a pear-shaped diamond. Technically, there is no right way.
How you should wear a pear shape diamond
While there is a popular way to wear the pear-shaped engagement ring, it doesn’t necessarily make it the right way. The beauty of having a pear cut diamond is that you can mix it up and wear it however you prefer. You can also alternate between the two ways if you like how both look on your hand.
This fancy cut is gorgeous either way, making it an appealing choice in either direction.
In short, there is no right way you should wear your ring. It is purely up to the beholder! Each person is different, so wear your ring however you feel comfortable or love most.
