Pear Shaped Engagement Rings: 38 of Our Favourite Dreamy Designs

Are you looking for an unusual engagement ring? A pear-shaped ring will give you all the sparkle of a brilliant cut with a unique twist that's both classic and contemporary

pear-shaped engagement ring

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of unique engagement rings and lately there’s one engagement ring trend that’s caught our eye: pear shaped engagement rings.

With all the fire and sparkle of a brilliant-cut stone but with a striking elongated shape and pointed tip that can be worn either way around, pear-shaped diamond rings can make a big impact. Plus, with a large table (that’s how big a diamond appears when seen face up), they often look larger than their carat weight and elongate the fingers of the wearer.  

When it comes to pear-shaped designs, it’s not all about diamonds, though, as you’ll see from our specially curated selection below. The pear-shape lends itself perfectly to a variety of gemstones as well as a wealth of setting options and metals.

From pear-shaped halo engagement rings to trilogy designs and pavé bands, there are so many options when it comes to this ring shape. Browse our edit of the best pear-shaped engagement rings, and discover everything you need to know about this striking style as Liz Olver, Director of Product Design at Vashi, answers your pear diamond FAQs.

Everything You Need to Know About Pear Shaped Engagement Rings

Want to know more? We chatted to Liz Olver, Director of Product Design at Vashi, who gave us the lowdown on this stylish shape.

What are the pros and cons of a pear-shaped engagement ring?

"Choosing a pear-shape diamond for your engagement ring is a quiet way to make a powerful statement. This beautiful teardrop shape, which can be worn with the tip pointing up or down, is perfect if you’re looking for something a little different, and its distinctive silhouette is combined with a brilliant cut that creates wonderful fire and brilliance. One thing to be mindful of, however, is that because of its elongated silhouette and pointed tip, which is vulnerable, the setting at the tip should wrap around to protect it."

What should you look out for when finding a high quality pear-shaped diamond?

"Whatever diamond shape you’re choosing, the 4 Cs – carat, clarity, colour and cut – will all come into play. Cut is often considered the most important because it determines a diamond's sparkle, and that’s certainly true when it comes to pear shapes. This is because a poorly cut pear shape will display a “bow tie” effect – a small dark area in the centre of the stone. So I’d always recommend opting for the highest possible grade of cut when you’re choosing a pear-shape diamond."

Do other gemstones come in a pear shape?

"Yes, lots of gemstones can be cut into a pear shape. If you’d like to add a splash of colour to your engagement ring, I’d suggest choosing a sapphire. Measuring 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, sapphires are nearly as hard as diamonds, which means that they’re perfect for an engagement ring that you’ll wear every day. And sapphires don’t have to be the traditional blue; they also come in a variety of beautiful colours."

Which settings work best with a pear-shaped gemstone?

"Because of their pointed silhouette, pear-shape gemstones work best with a V-shape claw setting. This setting uses prongs to secure the stone, showing off more of its surface area and creating maximum sparkle, while the V-shape claw protects the tip and helps prevent it from knocks that might chip the tip off. You could also consider a sleek bezel setting, which holds the diamond in place with an overlap of metal."

How do I care for a pear-shaped engagement ring?

"However careful you are, your engagement ring will naturally accumulate a little grime through daily wear, so I’d recommend giving it a very gentle clean once a month to keep it sparkling. The tip of a pear-shape diamond can catch if you’re cleaning, playing sport or gardening, so it’s important to take extra care (or even remove your ring) to prevent it from knocks that can damage the tip."

Are rings with pear-shaped gemstones popular?

"Yes, rings set with pear-shape gemstones are becoming more and more popular. When our customers see them up close, it’s the combination of the distinctive shape and beautiful sparkle that they fall for.

We have solitaire and side-stone engagement rings that hero pear-shape diamonds, and we have also used them to frame a round brilliant diamond in one of our trilogy rings. We have a wonderful limited-edition bombé ring featuring pear-shape diamonds on each side of a 2.00 carat round brilliant. Our bespoke team is currently seeing a lot of requests for pear-shape diamonds in toi et moi rings – they pair beautifully with round brilliants or emerald cuts."
