Is there an ideal length-to-width ratio for a pear shaped diamond?

Pear diamonds will have ratios between 1.4 and 1.7, generally. The 1.4 ratio offers a shorter, rounded appearance while a 1.7 ratio offers a longer and thinner appearance. There are of course ratios in between so seeing what looks appealing to you is important.

Which way should you wear a pear shape diamond ring?

There's no wrong way to wear your pear shape diamond ring. However, positioning the diamond to follow the finger's length can make the digit appear slender and longer. Whether to have the sharp edge point down (facing the fingertip) or point up (facing the arm) is debated. A pointed-down pear shape diamond complements the hand's shape and looks spectacular at an angle when modeling the ring. Choosing a pointed-up pear shape diamond shows off the unconventional form.

Why is a lab-grown pear-shaped diamond a good option?

If you are looking for something unique, look no further than a pear shape lab diamond. No two pear shapes are cut the same making every single stone one-of-a-kind. These lab diamonds provide optimal finger coverage and will appear larger than most any other shapes. They are also great at hiding imperfections so you can compromise on clarity to allow for a better color or higher carat weight.

What are the best settings for a pear shape diamond engagement ring?

Although the pear-shaped diamond takes the spotlight, the setting is equally important in your engagement ring design. A bezel setting's rim hugs a pear-shaped diamond's curves and sharp point to protect it from damage. A bezel complements minimalist engagement ring designs. A prong setting has hooks that hold the diamond in place. Spaced-out prongs create an airy effect, making the diamond appear larger. A six-prong setting is best for a pear-shaped diamond. Smaller diamonds surround the pear's perimeter with a halo setting, making the center stone look more substantial.
